How to fix the integrated graphics card not supported error in Once Human?

If the problem is not going away after you restart the game, then you can try following these methods.



Make sure the graphics card is inserted properly

If your GPU is not properly inserted into the PCIe Slot, your PC will fail to recognize it. To make sure this is not the case, turn off your PC, remove the side panel, and check the GPU. It will be wise to remove it from the motherboard and insert it again, just to be on the safe side.



Disable the GPU through Device Manager

In some cases, the issue may be appearing due to a bug that is preventing your PC from recognizing the dedicated GPU. To resolve this, follow these steps.

  • Type ‘Device Manager’ in the Windows Search Bar and click on the first option.
  • Expand ‘Display Adapters.’
  • Right-click on your dedicated GPU’s name and select ‘Disable device.’

  • Wait a few minutes, right-click on it again, and select ‘Enable device.’



Reinstall your GPU drivers

Your current GPU drivers may be faulty or something may have went wrong when you were downloading them. In any case, you’ll need to delete the GPU drivers and install them again.

For this, go back to the Device Manager and right-click on your GPU. This time, select ‘Uninstall device’ and follow the on-screen instructions.

After the drivers have been deleted successfully, you need to download and install them again from the official website of your GPU’s manufacturer.



Manually switch to the dedicated GPU (for laptops)

If you’re getting the error while trying to play Once Human on a laptop, it may be because the dedicated GPU isn’t getting selected automatically. Don’t worry, you can do it yourself.

If you’re using an Nvidia GPU, follow these steps.

  • Open the Nvidia Control Panel.
  • From the Manage 3D Settings, select High Performance Nvidia processor and click on ‘Apply.’
  • Now, go to Set PhysX Configuration.
  • Select your dedicated GPU and again click ‘Apply.’

If you’re using an AMD GPU, follow these steps.

  • Open the AMD Radeon Settings.
  • Go to System and select ‘Switchable Graphics.’
  • Now, select Once Human and choose ‘High Performance.’


Hopefully, after following the methods mentioned in our guide, Once Human will start recognizing your dedicated GPU. But if nothing works, you’ll need to wait for the developers to release a fix for the issue.
