It starts with a grey screen. No matter what I press, nothing happens. But if you switch to another window and click down while that other window has focus, it registers the click, but doesn’t show it until it loses focus then you set focus to Blender again. Resizing the window also causes it to refresh the display.
I tried putting opengl32.dll in the directory, and it “works” but is going very slow. But it does at least let me in, so that I could make any changes to settings or anything like that. I tried disabling the audio, because I read something indicating that can cause problems. That had no effect, and I cannot find or think of any other settings to try. I am fairly new to Blender.
I also tried downloading the newest version (2.79b), and the portable version. They both do the same exact thing as the other. I also tried adding -noaudio -noglsl -nojoystick to the shortcut path. I also tried opening it from a command prompt. I tried running as Administrator. I changed permissions of the program file to allow all. I installed the Microsoft C++ Redistributable. I temporarily disabled my antivirus. I also tried reinstalling Blender. I also tried restarting the computer. None of those helped either. I have been searching the internet for days, and trying almost everything, with no success.
The computer is brand new (about a week old) so I’m sure the drivers are all up to date. But I downloaded and ran the Intel Driver Support Assistant anyway, for good measure, and it said that my computer is up to date. Version 2.79 was doing fine on my old computer (Windows 7), which was many years old, so I don’t see why it would be a problem on a brand new one (that I can think of).
The computer is manufactured by Dell, the processor is Intel® Core™ i3-7100U CPU @ 2.40GHz, Windows 10 Home, 64-bit, RAM: 8.00 GB (7.87 GB usable), and it has a touchscreen (if that is important; my last one did not have that). It says “Touch support with 10 touch points”. The graphics is Intel® HD Graphics 620.
I appreciate any help with this. I hope I provided enough information. (If not, just ask.) I was thinking it possibly has something to do with the graphics driver (based on some things I came across), but I do not know that for a fact, nor what to do about it (if that is what it is) since my drivers are all up to date. So I don’t know. I am kind of hoping that one of you do, and I appreciate your help with this. Thank you in advance.
