It's already installed, just make sure your graphics drivers are up to date and you should be fine

To clarify: The OpenGL drivers are part of the usual drivers you get with ATI/NVIDIA.

You can run dxdiag from the command console, and then choose display and look at the Drivers Version field, and then compare that version with the latest version available from your graphics card provider.

ok,will do that.
Basically i want to use VBO and VAO which is supported in opengl3.0 version or more.

Currently these functions are not available.

I am using a windows 7 64 bit and I have Intel 3000 version:8.830.6.3000.

should i update further?

If I update the driver will i get the support for these functions

You need to use an OpenGL function loading library (http://www.opengl.org/wiki/OpenGL_Loading_Library).
