I have the Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 650 @3.20GHz, 3333Mhz . In Task Manager my GPU is always at 0%. I suspect that may be why I can't play a game I downloaded. Is there some way to test my GPU?

I have the latest updates for windows 10 and preformed the diagnostics test provided by Intel which showed the GPU was working normally.

Your 2010 processor is not supported on Windows 10.

You are using the Microsoft generic driver, because that is the only driver that exists for your processor.

...and you likely cannot play your games because the MS driver does not provide the necessary OpenGL version.

Thank you both for the explanations. Maybe I will stick with my xbox for those type of games.

The PCU cannot be upgraded to anything useful.
