Weird OpenGL Issue

Fri Mar 10, 2017 12:14 pm

For some reason today I can't use anything that makes use of OpenGL for rendering, Quake 4, Doom 3, GZDoom and PPSSPP all give me an error about Failing to Create an OpenGL Rendering Context, until yesterday all these things ran fine.

It's not really an issue as most things I do have a dx9 alternative, but it is very annoying and strange considering how spontaneous it is.

First off, wouldn't this be more appropriate in the tech issues forum? (I can move it there if you like)

Secondly, what are your hardware specs?

Thirdly, between the last time it worked and now, were there any updates or additional programs installed?

EDIT: It works again, somehow.
The screen went black while I wasn't using the computer, then it came back and I decided to check with PPSSPP again, it ran normally.

1.-My bad, Please and Thanks.

2.-It's a really old laptop, the CPU is an Intel Celeron B815 1.6Ghz with an integrated graphics card (shown simply as Intel HD Graphics in DxDiag).

3.-There wasn't any change between last night and today.

Please do note, that due it being legacy hardware, I can't update the drivers any further because Intel says so.

That's weird. Maybe the driver just crashed and it's back to normal again.

Most likely, thanks for your time, regardless.
