Fellow Forum Members,
I have a Dell M90 running Windows 10. It has a Quadro FX 3500 graphics card running a 307.45 Nvidia driver. The link below has full details on the 307.45 Nvidia driver:
The Nvidia website stipulates the following: “Support for OpenGL 4.2 on the Quadro series cards and higher” It also mentions the driver is compatible with the Quadro FX 3500.
In short, I’m confused why my 2017 Sketchup won’t start. It shows an error message that my Quadro FX 3500 runs OpenGL 2.1 and that Sketchup requires OpenGL 3.0 or better.
Why if the Nvidia website tells me the 307.45 Nvidia driver installed on my Dell laptop supports up to OpenGL 4.1 is Sketchup 2017 telling me conflicting information? Is it possible to install OpenGL 3.0 as a standalone application so my Sketchup 2017 can run?
I would appreciate it very much if anyone out there can offer any opinions on how I can upgrade my laptop to run OpenGL 3.0 or better. Thanks in advance for any help.
