OK, unfortunately your system is far below the minimum requirements for running Rhino V7, and on top of that, your video drivers are very old (2018). Intel considers your system “end-of-life”. You might try updating your video drivers - seems the most recent one is from end of 2022, but even then I am not sure it will work correctly.
Unfortunately, you really need a better computer to run Rhino.
Thanks for your input. Ill have a crack at that upgrade and if not guess it’s time for an upgrade then.
