GPU not compatible with win 10?

MisterWhite

So when i installed win 10 64bit everything was fine, resolution was correct and some games (to test new CPU) ran as they should on Radeon HD 4850 1GB. Now I downloaded Driver Pack Solution, to check if any drivers need updating, and when it updated gpu driver or something my screen resolution decreased (max 1280x1024, should be 1680x1050), and i can't get it back the way it was. I read something on the web that 4xxx kind is not supported on win 10, though it was fine after just the windows installation

What are you using as your output? HDMI or DVI?

 

Also not sure where you installed your drivers from but here is the link to the official AMD drivers. I'm pretty sure you already did this, but if you happened to install drivers from somewhere else, please us these.

windows installs all the graphics drivers you need

you do not download them

 

what you just did is downgrade the drivers to an older version not made for windows 10

Not if your Windows install is not connected to the internet while installing. If you skip that step your updates will not be applied. And you almost always have to do the first install of graphics drivers manually. Every LTT video about a graphics card he says to check online for the latest drivers.

DVI, and that link does not give a downloadable file.

Whoops Sorry!!! You will need to install the AMD Catalyst and have it install your drivers for your. HERE is the proper link. My apologies. Although it is good to note it only shows up to windows 8 in the available list of OS's for the drivers selection for the 4000 series.

if you actually GO to the amd website, you will notice only the latest GPU series are supported by the latest drivers (like 200 and 300 series, and fury)

 

you cannot download drivers for the older GPUs for windows 10 (such as OPs 4000 series)

they NEED to be installed by windows update, even says so on the amd website

 

LTT deals with the latest graphics cards on the high end

not the ones which you cannot download drivers for

 

and yes you need to be connected to the internet for windows to download any drivers obviously

even if you dont connect during the installation, the next time you connect to the internet, windows 10 will update itself with the drivers it needs

 

 

 

and yes i know all this because i just clean installed windows 10 on a laptop with a HD4570 a few days ago

use ddu to uninstall all graphics drivers

restart windows

go to settings and windows update and search for updates

hopefully it notices youre missing your GPU drivers and it reinstalls it again
