i have a Dell N5110 with the intel HD graphic 3000, and i want to play some games that uses OpenGL (RAGE)
but my problem is i think my graphic driver does not support the OpenGL version the game require...
the second problem is, the graphic driver for the HD 3000 that Dell post on his update site is practically 1 year-old...
i've tryed to update it by myself.. no result, i've call the technical support of Dell... still no result (the guy just apear to know less than me about computer)
when i try to update it with the update that intel post on his site, it says that this version of the driver has not been validated for this computer.
and as i just say, the dell's lastest driver was ou last year...
so is there anyway to install in anyway the Intel's lastest driver ?
Or how can a make RAGE work on my computer?
PS: RAGE crash and tell me this : Failed to compile render prog feedbackresolve from feedbackresolve
Thanks for your upcoming help !
It's going to be a close call on the 3000, since it's not even on this list:
But I do see this in the revision notes for build 2656 in the "fixed issues" section: "Rage exhibits corrupted textures in certain scenes and fails to load Wasteland scene with Texture Detail set turned on."
So it must work to some degree. Unfortunately, the latest for mobile seems to be 2622, so you'll have the above issue:
Though it's possible that the latest 2696 does support mobile and just doesn't say it, so try this first (if you have a 2nd gen Core CPU):
i do know that the game is not on the list, but i've seen many people playing it with practically the same pc config as me
and one of the big problem, is that the drivers i try to install from intel doesn't work, is says that this driver has not been validated for my computer
so i'm asking is there a way to bypass the ''thing'' that block my driver update, because Dell doesn't seem's to update anymore my pc model
I'm surprised 2622 didn't work. You're sure you tried that one? With Intel, it's easy to find any number of different versions on the site.
What is the hardware ID for your system then? Device Manager, properties of the Intel 3000, Details tab, Hardware ids. Copy and paste that here.
That hardware ID is mentioned in both drivers I last mentioned. This is ringing a bell now: sometimes when going from a vendor version of the driver to Intel's (i.e. the "generic" version), you have to uninstall the vendor one first. Try that. You may see an entry for it in Uninstall (formerly Add/Remove Programs) in Control Panel, though you'll definitely see an entry for it when right-clicking the adapter in Device Manager. If given the option when uninstalling, check the box that says something like "Do you wish to delete driver from system?" so that it doesn't automatically reinstall on you.
Then try 2696 again (or, if necessary, the older one I mentioned). Note that you might have to use the "Have Disk" method described at the bottom of this article.
