OpenGL not working after drivers updates

Question asked by komplete on Dec 26, 2015

Ok, so basically I was trying to update my GPU drivers for Just Cause 3, and then it all started happening. So, I updated, when through the process, restarted when prompted, and tried to load up a steam game, they were and are still giving me errors saying: *NOTE*: This is the minecraft error:

This is the steam game error**: Failed to create OpenGL context for format QSurfaceFormat(version 2.0, options QFlags(), depthBufferSize 24, redBufferSize -1, greenBufferSize -1, blueBufferSize -1, alphaBufferSize 8, stencilBufferSize 8, samples -1, swapBehavior 2, swapInterval 1, profile 0)

This is most likely caused by not having the necessary graphics drivers installed. -(even though I have the latest crimson version)


Install a driver providing OpenGL 2.0 or higher, or, if this is not possible, make sure the ANGLE Open GL ES 2.0 emulation libraries (libEGL.dll, libGLESv2.dll and d3dcompiler_*.dll) are available in the application executable's directory or in a location listed in PATH.





My GPU is an AMD Radeon HD 7770 Series and I believe I installed everything right, but if not, SOMEONE PLEASE PROVIDE A VIDEO ON HOW TO INSTALL NEW DRIVERS PROPERLY AND/OR ADD ME ON SKYPE (Hudsonfromminecraft) TO HELP WALK ME THROUGH IT. Thanks.
