BlueStacks currently is unable to recognize the graphics card

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello experts,

A friend of mine recommended to install BlueStacks App because I can have access to many apps for my devices. While installing the software I have this error. I don’t know what this error means and why I have it since most of my friends are using it? Does anyone can help me to fix it?

BlueStacks currently doesn’t recognize your graphics card.

It is possible that your graphics Drivers may need to be updated. Please update them and try installing again.

BlueStacks currently is unable to recognize the graphics card


The BlueStacks App Player is simply an Android application emulator on a computer. Using this application, you can run and play different Android games and apps on your computer not only on your Smartphone. And like any other emulator programs, this too, requires a good video card to properly display the Android apps.

BlueStacks App Player has different versions especially those old ones. And if you are using an outdated version, it may not run on your computer because it doesn’t support your operating system. To make sure you are using the latest, download the latest version from BlueStacks App Player. It supports Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.

It also supports Mac OS X and can be downloaded on the same page. When it prompts you with an error saying to update your graphics adapter’s driver, you can either update its driver later or just leave it that way. You can still use BlueStacks App Player even if you don’t update your video card’s driver but you are only limited to those applications that can support your video card and there will be several apps that will not run because they require high quality graphics.

So, to get the most out of it, do update your video card’s driver or if the player really doesn’t work, the last option is to purchase a new video card.
