Houston, We have lift off.
I followed the Intell link https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/detect.html to update drivers. It scanned my system and they recommended four updates. I updated all but the graphics driver because Intel suggested I use the manufacturer's updates because Intel may remove their "customizations".
I went to the Manufacturer's web site (Lenova) they scaned my computer , and installed their updates. They didn't specify what they were updating.
After my computer restarted, I tried to start Galactic Civilizations III and play a game. It started up as usual stopping at "Setting up players", I waited ten minutes, nothing happened except the audio kept playing, but the "Spiral Galaxy" in the center of the screen stopped spinning.
I checked in Windows settings and checked device manager, to see if my graphics card had been updated, but it said I had the latest driver update and I saw where the update was two years old.
I than went back to intel, and despite their warnings, I downloaded their latest graphics driver update, and now device manager says I have a 10/17/2021 driver update installed.
I went back to start up Galactic Civilizations, and after about 30 seconds after clicking start, the game is running. I repeated this four times and even changed the map size to huge, with no problems.
Also I haven't seen any changes in my graphics that Lenova may have customized.
I thank you very much, for your time, and help.
Over and out.
