Some Common Issues With Bluestacks Download And Installation
The most common problem that many people face when downloading is Bluestacks download time. Depending on your internet connection and your system, it can take a while to download. So be patient.
Another common problem is error associated with graphics cards. If your system is using the required graphics card to run Bluestacks you may need to update your drivers. After a lot of research, I have found that this is to be a common fix when having graphics card errors.
There are some instances where installation may stall or fail. In this case it is important to go into your control panel and uninstall it. Then try to reinstall it. Keep in mind that all Bluestacks programs are in the beta stage so there may be several unexpected issues that may come up.
