How to solve Error 1005: Your graphics card is outdated, please update before use!

If you have met the below error message which says “Your graphics card is outdated, please update before use!” in NoxPlayer, please try the solutions in this post one by one to solve it:

Step 1.

First of all, please run the MultiPlayer and try to switch Graphics rendering mode (OpenGL, DX), then restart the emulator.


Recently due to the OpenGL graphics driver update caused some of the users encountered an Error ID:1005 during the game or running App. If an error occurs in the OpenGL mode, we recommend you try to switch to DX mode by referring to the picture below.


Step 2.

If you do not solve the problem, when you encounter the above error, please try to update the graphics card driver.


Is there a need to first remove the old graphics card driver?

The safest method is to first remove the old version of the graphics card driver from the console and reboot it again after removal.

However, if it is the same video card, for example, NVIDIA’s official website, it will automatically remove the old version and then install the new version before installation.

PS: If there is no problem with your computer, the graphics card driver can actually not be updated.

The OpenGL version is above than 2.0 (For checking if the video card supports OpenGL 2.0 or above, please download this tool: OpenGLChecker.exe)

If the graphics card driver version does not meet the minimum configuration requirements of the program, we recommend you to change the graphics card driver and try again.
