Rhino V6 can't draw anything

I’ve recently installed Rhino V6 however I can’t seem to be able to draw anything and even after initiating a command it takes a long while for anything to be drawn. This is the system Info:

Hi Elaine - You will need to update the drivers of your GPU for this to work.
E.g. see this post:


-wim

Are there any applications you would recommend to update the GPU drivers?

The only application I would recommend is the Intel application. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/80939/Graphics-Drivers

If it does not work you may need to use the procedure described in Updating Intel HD Driver
