For two years now my laptop's graphics card has not been correctly identifying its current OpenGL version. It says it is running OpenGL version 1.1. However, after re-installing the video card drivers (multiple times) my system still incorrectly reports an older OpenGL version. My laptop is reporting that it is running OpenGL 1.1, but the video card (AMD Mobility Radeon HD 2300) and the drivers (most updated Catalyst Suite drivers), report that the card should support OpenGL 4.2.
How can I either update my OpenGL version, or get my system to correctly run a newer version of OpenGL?
