Graphics issues

I’m trying to play a game called Endless Sky, which is made in opengl. For some reason, despite the fact it is a simple 2d game, it crashes like mad. I think its my graphics card, is there a way to upgrade it somehow, without actually having to get new hardware? I already updated my drivers.

It would be helpful if you said what graphics card you currently have.

And yes, even a 2D game can generate a heavy workload: whether a game is 2D or 3D is not very relevant.
