When I try to run a computer game an error message comes up stating, "Can't create a GL rendering context." I have no idea what this means but really wish to play the computer game. I understand if it can't be fixed, but can someone help me bypass this error so I can at least play the game. Thank you!

Which game? If the game uses the OpenGL API, your video card may not support it. Have you run this game in the past, and what model is your video card.

Have a look at the games settings. Maybe you can switch to DirectX graphics mode.

The game is Nibiru. I'm not sure how to tell if it uses OpenGL Api. I have not run this game in the past, nor do I know what model our video card is. How do I figure out what video card I have?
