Angry Birds Open GL Error Fix for Windows 7 and XP

You have played Angry Birds in your mobile, now you want to play the game in PC. So you have downloaded the PC version of the game and installed it. Even though installation is successful you may get some OpenGL or DirectX errors. So here is a working fix for all the errors.

You may get one or more of the following errors while running Angry Birds in your computer.

OpenGL 2.0 renderer not supported!

OpenGL 1.4 renderer not supported!

DirectX 11 renderer not supported!

If you get one or more of the above errors here is the fix for this.

We have Two Methods for fixing this. Either of them will surely work for you.

Method 1:

1. In your windows system, go to Start -> Control panel.

2. Go to Device Manager (If you can’t find the option, use the search box).

3. Go to Display Adapters

4. Double Click the Driver which is displayed.

5. In the window that pops up, go to the Driver tab and click Update Driver.

6. Click Search automatically for updated driver software option in the window that pops up.

7. Update the software and Restart your computer.

Go to Angry Birds and your problem should be fixed and you should be able to play the game. If not try Method 2.

Method 2:

Step 1: Updating all your drivers (Recommended)

Even though this step is not totally necessary, I recommend you to do this because it will also tackle the future problems while running games of any kind and it takes only a few minutes and it is fully automatic.

Go to the following link:

It is the Intel Automatic Driver Update Utility. It checks for the drivers in your computer and updates them if needed.

Step 2: Installing the latest DirectX (Recommended)

Some of you may get the DirectX error along with the Open GL error. If so this step is a must and for others I strongly recommend in installing the latest DirectX from the following link.


Alternately, you can download the latest DirectX from here: DirectX 11
The above link gives you the direct executable file rather than a web installer.

Step 3: Installing the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver (Must)

This is the final and most important step in tackling the Open GL error. Just download the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for your operating system either windows 7 or windows xp from the following link and install it.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows 7:


Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Windows XP:


If the above two links didn’t work for you, go to the below link and select the Driver according to your System Configurations:


Now Restart your computer.

Try running the game and you should be able to play now!

All the above steps are explained in the following YouTube video:
