BlueStacks does not recognize the graphics card Problem and solution, if you want to run an Android app on your computer, you’ll probably need to download and install BlueStacks on your computer to do so.

BlueStacks is the most popular and most stable application to run Android applications on your computer. It is available for PC and Mac. But when you try to install BlueStacks on your PC, that is to say, a Windows-based computer, it is very likely that you will see the notorious error of the graphics card.

BlueStacks installation failed

Error 25000. Bluesacks does not currently recognize the graphics card. It is possible that your graphic drivers may need to be updated, please update them and try installing again.

As a result of this error, the BlueStacks installation will fail and you probably will not be able to install BlueStacks until you correct this error. Here’s how to solve the problem.

• The common sense and simplest approach is to restart the computer and try to install BlueStacks again. Usually this approach does not work.

• If the computer restart does not work, then you need to update the video card drivers of the computer. To do this, right click on the computer icon on the desktop and click on ‘Manage’ in the menu. Now select Device Manager> Video Card. Then right click on it and select ‘Driver Software Update’.

Windows will now ask you where you want to look for the latest version of device drivers. Select ‘Automatically search for the updated driver’ for the software.

Windows will now download and install the latest version of the graphics driver on your computer. Now restart the computer and then try the BlueStacks installation again. You should install it correctly this time.

Why do I need to update the graphics driver to install BlueStacks?

This is because Android programs use OpenGL for graphics, unlike Windows that uses Direct3D. When Windows automatically updates in the background, Direct3D is updated but OpenGLs are never updated. When you update the graphics driver manually, the OpenGL is also updated to the latest version, thus fixing the BlueStacks graphic device.
