How to install BlueStacks without Graphics Card

Posted by Swaviman Kumar 7 Comments
run android apps in windows without graphic card
As the title says this article explains how you can use android apps in windows pc even if you don’t have dedicated graphics card. In fact if you want to run android games and apps in windows pc then you have to download & install a software called “BlueStacks”. But it needs minimum of 2 GB of graphics card to run android apps. Hence people see “graphics card error” while installing it, if their system doesn’t meet the required criteria. So here as a solution to such types of problems, we have brought to you an edited Beta version of BlueStacks which can be run fluently in pcs without having graphics card.

Download & installation:

For downloading the BlueStacks Beta 1 you can go for any of the several links provided at the end of the post or you can simply download it from here.
After downloading install it by double clicking on it. It will take upto 2 to 3 mins to be installed. Once installed correctly it will be ready to run any type of .apk(android apps) file.

NB: While using it just make sure that your internet connection is active. Though it will not consume your Data while running but still it requires an internet connection to get started.
Now it’s time to play with some of the apps.

Features of BlueStacks Beta:

Here you will find three app stores provided to download apps and games from. They are 1Mobile lite, Getjar & Amazon App Store. Though it doesn’t provide Google playstore, but the 1mobile is an exact substitute for it. Because you can find all those apps in 1mobile store which are in google playstore. 

Along with that it also comes with some popular social media apps like facebook, twitter etc pre-installed. Also you can use various apps for news & others like Hoffington posts, world newspaper, stumbleupon, Pulse, wikimobile2 etc.

It has Evernote, Feedly, Officesuit Pro, DropBox, Bloomberg etc under tools category with which you can read & edit documents, use cloud storage, make notes & do many more things.
It comes with many exciting applications like WhatsApp, Saavn, PicsArt Viewer & like this.

One of the interesting features of it is the search option, which simultaneously searches in all three app stores mentioned above for any search query.

But this version of bluestacks is restricted to certain extent as it is a beta version which usually is available for testing purpose only. So though we don’t have any information from its developers for further release of full versions, but this is for sure that this version can be a perfect gofor for light users.


 As we said it is having certain restrictions of use.
  1. Any app downloaded from external source may not run & ask for graphic memory.
     2.All the apps from 1mobile or getjar may not play well, so we recommend to download only those apps which are mentioned in its menu and those which are shown at the right coloumn as suggested apps. We are pretty sure that these apps mentioned here will run smoothly.
suggested android apps to download

For example:- If you install WhatsApp downloaded directly from the 1Mobile store then it may not run at all, but if installed from the link given under MESSAGING category, will run perfectly.

     3.For gamers it is not an option at all, because it can’t even play medium level games and asks for dedicated graphics memory.

     4.The number of apps & games supported is very very few. That’s why we said it can be an option for light users.

In brief we can say that this software is only an answer for those thousands of queries on internet asking for how to install bluestacks without graphics card, but according to usability we can’t rely completely upon it. Running BlueStacks in PCs with dedicated graphics card can never be substituted with this beta version.
