If you’re on Windows, and you’re seeing this error saying Can’t find the name of Intel ICD OpenGL driver, you’re not alone. Many Windows users are reporting it. But the good news is you can fix it easily by yourself with this guide.

This problem is mainly caused by an old version of your Intel graphics card driver. So you can solve this issue through updating your display card driver.

Here’re 2 options for you to update your device driver. Please read along and choose the way you prefer.

Option 1: Download a latest graphics driver from Intel website manually
Option 2: Update your Intel graphics driver automatically

Option 1: Download a latest graphics driver from Intel website manually

The most direct way to update your driver is to download the latest one from the manufacturer’s website.

1) Go to official Intel website. Then go to its driver download page.    

2) Enter your graphics card model number and press Enter.

3) Click the .exe file matching with your Windows to download and install it on your computer.

4) After installing the new driver, please restart your computer and check to see if the error still occurs.

 

Although it’s direct and straight forward to download drivers from manufacturer’s website, it’s not such easy as it sounds. If you’re not confident playing around with drivers manually or you don’t have enough time and patience, you can do it automatically through Option 2.
