Windows 10 has repeatedly rolled back drivers for older graphics cards back to their "Microsoft Basic Display Driver". Which is newer than what most older cards have, but is also garbage and doesn't support OpenGL. That might be your issue.

Is there a way to fix that?
"Choose your causes carefully, if not, if you try to champion every good cause that comes along, you'll wear yourself out, at best, and worse, become a dilettante -- an ineffective dabbler. Pick a few that are the most near and dear to you, and give them your all, trusting that others are out there handling the other causes with equal fervor."

In the past, I'd say in Windows Update, click on details and uncheck the Microsoft Basic Display Driver, then right click the update and choose Hide Update.  That would knock it out until the next time Microsoft revises the driver and pushes it under a new KB Article Number to make it reappear as a new download.  Under Windows 10, that's not possible. 

Press Start and type "Device Manager".  In Device Manager, right click on your video card, go to Properties, then the Driver tab and "Update Driver".  Pick "Browse my computer for driver software", then "Let me pick from a list of available drivers on my computer" and see if Windows 10 replaced the old drivers with the Basic Display Driver or not.  If it hasn't, re-select your good one and click Next to bring it back.

If the Microsoft Basic Display Driver is the only option, I'd download the driver you know that works from your manufacturer and reinstall it that way.  Unfortunately, you'd have to reinstall it every time Microsoft gets a hair up its behind and replaces it again.

Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.
