How do you install drivers on a Radeon 3000 Graphics card?

I've been trying to get Minecraft to work on my child's computer, but it won't work. Every time I attempt to open the game, through both the regular minecraft laucher and Badlion client, it says I'm having an issue with my graphics card. So I went to my device manager, and it told me that there weren't any drivers installed on my device, so I tried to update the card and it said that the graphics card was up to date. Then I decided to go on the AMD website and download the window 8 software. And when I tried to apply it, it displayed the same message stating my graphics card was up to date. How do I get minecraft to work? 

I've attached images

Thank you for your help

First your Radeon 3000 is not supported by AMD driver updates.

You are correct, the last driver was for Windows 8 for 2013.  You probably won't find anything newer than that driver.

You can try and go to your motherboard's Support download page and see if by any chance they have a newer driver for your embedded  Motherboard IGPU.

Here are the specs for your IGPU: ATI Radeon 3000 IGP Specs | TechPowerUp GPU Database 

Here are Minecraft's Minimum and Recommended Hardware requirements:

I seriously doubt your Radeon 3000 can run Minecraft no matter how new of a driver you have installed.
