So after dealing with constant crash at startup and reading through the forum here, my issue is shader 4.40. How do i update or upgrade to 4.50?
Yes, it's a older setup but don't use it for gaming.

Your CPU integrated GPU doesn't support OpenGL 4.5. There's no software upgrade possible.

If your CPU is in a socket it might be exchanged by a higher CPU model.
If your laptop has a slot for external GPU you can use this.

However most laptops don't support these features.
