Citra has encountered with an error while running video core (error 9)

Issue:
I was trying to run my pokemon rom and then the windows popped up and showed me the message of the error ( btw the pokemon was running fine a while ago)

Your GPU is too old for Citra. You have OpenGL 3.1, and Citra requires 3.3. If you have a desktop, you can buy and get a new GPU, but if it’s a laptop, you will have to buy a new one entirely.

Why using amd radeon r5 m430 in pokemon OR makes the game slowely unlike pokemon sun and ultra sun it play nice speed. But using Intel HD graphics 520 on pokemon OR makes it faster but the problem it’s unstable and sometimes crashes? TY for anyone who can answer…
