G510: unable to play games

Good day People

 

I bought a Lenovo G510 Lapotop with Intel HD Graphics 4600 and I am unable to play games as I can't get driver updates or something to make the driver work.

 

Please help.

Re: G510: unable to play games

Hi Noel,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

I’m sorry to hear that the Games are not working as expected in your G510 Laptop, I suggest checking if the game is compatible and then provide me the compatibility details. So that I can provide you the exact steps to resolve this issue, below is the link to check the game compatibility and the Hardware required to run this game.

 

Hope to hear back soon

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hi Noel,

 

As per the compatibility report, the game that you are trying to play does not support by the Inbuilt Graphics available in the computer.

 

Do post us back for further queries.
