How to install or fix opengl problem in windows -7-8 & 10 (32bit,64bit) any version and play games like cs cz & cs 1.6 in OpenGL mode

What is OpenGL?

OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a cross-language, multi-platform application programming interface (API) for rendering 2D and 3D vector graphics. The API is typically used to interact with a graphics processing unit (GPU), to achieve hardware-accelerated rendering. [wikipedia]

official website of OpenGL : https://www.opengl.org/

Solution to fix OpenGL Problem in Windows 7, 8, 8.1 & 10 (32bit & 64bit)

If you are using Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset.

download Graphics: Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for G41 Express Chipset from here.

Download .zip file, extract it & Open setup.exe file. Force Windows to install this version if you get any warning or notification about driver update.

After Successful Installation Restart your windows.

This will fix OpenGL errors of any Game.

Personal Experiance

I have tested this OpenGL fix on  games like counter strike : condition zero (cs cz) and counter strike 1.6 (cs 1.6). You can see following screenshots.

cs 1.6 fix openGL windows 7, 8. 10

cs 1.6 fix openGL windows 7, 8. 10

Before installing graphic driver I was only able to play in D3D & Software mode. When I tried to switch openGL , I always get error then game itself changes its setting to software mode.

After installing graphic driver cs game worked but it creates problem to another game sniper ghost warrior game. When I open this game black screen appears with background game sound.

I have tried all the method to fix this but nothing worked.

I will update post when I fix Sniper: Ghost Warrior game issue.  Temporary Solution is to uninstall Graphic Driver which we have Install.
