Pixel format not Accelerated
Posted 24 February 2013 - 11:28 AM
1) 64-bit Operating System
2) Java 32-bit Version 7 Update 15
3) Intel® HD Graphics 3000
4) Soul Silver
5) There is no console log in my “Log” folder…
My computer is a Toshiba Satellite L755-S5258.
I was able to play PokéMMO just fine last week or so, but now I keep getting the "Pixel format not accelerated" error message. I don't understand... Any help?
My dxdiag just in case.

But it doesn't make sense that I should need to update seeing as how I have recently updated my graphics (sometime in December) and that the game has worked after the updated graphics. I just don't know what possibly could have happened between the last time I played and now..

If you don't reboot, the system isn't able to remove the old driver properly.

Found a post from Intel on a similar install issue:
I think what is going on is you have an OEM specific driver installed on your system that is blocking installing the Intel HD Graphics generic driver. There is a way to install the generic driver and overwrite the OEM installed driver however, you must be warned that you will loose any OEM customizations Dell made to the driver specific to your system.
If you want to try the generic driver, follow these steps:
1. Download http://downloadmirro...7_64-152612.zip
2. Extract win7_64-152612.zip to a folder on your desktop.
3. Open Control Panel
4. Open Device Manager
5. Double click on Display Adapters
6. Double click on Intel HD Graphics Family
7. Click on Driver tab
8. Click on Update Driver button
9. Click on "Browse my computer for driver software" option
10. Click on "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" option
11. Click on Have Disk button
12. On the Install From Disk dialog, click Browse
13. In the Locate File dialog, navigate to the folder you extracted the driver to in step 2 above.
14. When you have navigated to that folder, navigate to the Graphics sub-folder
15. In the Graphics sub-folder, you will see the file "igdlh64.inf", double click this file
16. You will then be back at the "Install From Disk" dialog, click OK
17. You will then be back at the "Update Driver Software" dialog, click Next
18. The driver installer will now start, wait for it to complete
19. When the process has completed, close the open Device Manager dialogs and you will be asked to reboot.
20. Reboot and you should be updated.
