Citra does not detect my GPU and won't start with an OpenGL 3.3 not supported error

Issue:

Citra does not detect my GPU and won’t start with an OpenGL 3.3 not supported error

My citra used to work just fine. Last I opened citra was about 4 weeks ago. Now I’m trying to play the game(any game), it’s not working anymore

the error says “Your GPU may not support OpenGL 3.3…”
I have reinstalled my gpu driver three times, also reinstalled citra.
I looked up and it seems like citra is not detecting my GPU. PLZ HELP!

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by Citra. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: How to Upload the Log File.

I did upload the log

It looks like your gpu is using generic drivers instead of nvidia’s, when you updated did you update through nvidia’s tool/website? Or through windows ‘update this device’ option?
