Enabling OpenGL 1.5 on Intel® GM965

Greetings,

I've been struggling with this for a while and have yet to find a solution.

I'm running a laptop running on a Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family - specifically a Intel® GM965. The driver is as current as I can find ( 8.15.10.1749 ) Documentation on this chipset tells me that it supports OpenGL up to 1.5, however when I run GPU Caps Viewer it tells me my OpenGL version is 1.1.0, despite having the most up to date drivers.

Can anyone tell me how I can enable OpenGL1.5?

Hi there!

Indeed, the 965GM graphics controller supports OpenGL 1.5

If you need to enable OpenGL* 1.5, just need to load the latest Intel graphics driver available on the Intel web site, just check below to download it

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/detect.htm http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/detect.htm

or the direct link (select operating system)

Thanks

Cheers for the response, Allan. Unfortunately my problem is still not solved.

My drivers are already fully up to date, but my laptop is still set to OpenGL* 1.1 as you can see below.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to inform my laptop that it should be able to run OpenGL* 1.5

Don't trust this driver detection. Download the latest driver in the download section and try it again.

Yups, you have my thanks

I must have gone through that list of available drivers a dozen times by now and somehow always downloaded the wrong drivers, this time however I got the correct ones and my chipset is now happilly 1.5 enabled!

It's nice to see this 4 years IT degree of mine is paying off!

Cheers for the help both of you!
