Unhappy OpenGL Problems

I have been having OpenGL problems lately. I downloaded this OpenGL extensions viewer and it told me i was missing many files....
These are the ones it says are missing ------->

System Info
Windows XP Home Edition

Vendor
Microsoft Corporation
1.1.0

Renderer
GDI Generic

Extensions
GL_EXT_bgra
GL_EXT_paletted_texture
GL_WIN_swap_hint


Core features

v1.1 (100 % - 7/7)
v1.2 (12 % - 1/8)
v1.3 (0 % - 0/9)
v1.4 (0 % - 0/15)
v1.5 (0 % - 0/3)
v2.0 (0 % - 0/10)
v2.1 (0 % - 0/3)
OpenGL driver version check (Current: 6.14.10.6287, Latest known: 1.1.0):
Latest version of display drivers found

According the database, you are running the latest display drivers for your video card.
No hardware support

Your current video configuration DOES NOT support hardware accelerated OpenGL.
No compiled vertex array support

This may cause performance loss in some applications.
No paletted texture support

This may cause performance loss in some older applications.
No multitexturing support

This may cause performance loss in some applications.
No secondary color support

Some applications may not render polygon highlights correctly.
No S3TC compression support

This may cause performance loss in some applications.
No texture edge clamp support

This feature adds clamping control to edge texel filtering. Some programs may not render textures correctly (black line on borders.)
No vertex program support

This feature enables vertex programming (equivalent to DX8 Vertex Shader.) Some current or future OpenGL programs may require this feature.
No fragment program support

This feature enables per pixel programming (equivalent to DX9 Pixel Shader.) Some current or future OpenGL programs may require this feature.
No OpenGL Shading Language support

This may break compatibility for applications using per pixel shading.
No Frame buffer object support

This may break compatibility for applications using render to texture functions.
Few texture units found

This may slow down some applications using fragment programs or extensive texture mapping.
Extension verification:
GL_EXT_paletted_texture has the entry point glColorTableEXT missing!

GL_EXT_paletted_texture has the entry point glGetColorTableEXT missing!

GL_EXT_paletted_texture has the entry point glGetColorTableParameterfvEXT missing!

GL_EXT_paletted_texture has the entry point glGetColorTableParameterivEXT missing!

GL_WIN_swap_hint has the entry point glAddSwapHintRectWIN missing!


Is there a way to get these files and more to fix my problems?

What card do you have? It just looks like your card doesn't fully support opengl (not uncommon for older cards) You can go here DirectX and download the latest.

He wants OpenGL not directx they are 2 different graphical implementations. Directx is downloadable via microsoft. I think openGL drivers are part of the graphics card drivers what brand is it? if its nvidia try:
http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp

or ATI try:
http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

Although if your graphics card is old it might only support openGL up to a certain point such as some cards only support directx till 7 or 8.

Doe openGL games work?

maybe its just the viewer you downloaded, is it programming? such as visual studio may have to include the openGL libraries.
