Not surprising, it's old AF. Would be surprised if you could still play Minesweeper on that thing.

Chip-based GPUs are generally poor in 3D performance, and yours was released eight years ago. In exponential computer years that's like being 4 million years-old. Put it out to pasture, or take it out behind the farmhouse and shoot it.

Suggest a new, full and free-standing graphics card that was released this decade. For Windows 10, you might consider one that's compatible with DirectX 12.

Second Life is a full 3D virtual world that will drive your graphics subsystem significantly harder than any AAA+ online game (e.g. GTA 5 or whatever version of Modern Warfare is current).

The bottom line is that Intel and Microsoft have no support plan for that class of chipsets with Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.

The chipset is supported for standard Business graphics use but not for 3D use.

The last OS that could support this chipset in a 3D mode was Windows 7.
