    @macinric @batlhilz
    I have booted the system in safe mode and while i was trying to open display settings, a dialog box popped up saying:

    "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel"

    I don't have any idea what does that mean. What should i do then?

    if you can boot up to safe mode, go to the device manager and remove all the graphic cards and stuff related to those. then try and reboot normally. it should be back at 800x600 when you boot back up on normal mode or 1024x768

    changing a cable might help here too, cause the EDID information should be sent to the windows in order to help the windows adjust its own resolution correctly. for some reason, 64Hz sounds nothing like this and the driver has just "made up his mind"

    Thanks a lot for your suggestion, @batlhilz

    I clicked on "Go to the previous build" option in the Advanced Repair Options. and hence I could able to go to the desktop in the normal mode successfully.

    Thank you so much guys!

    Hi all, @Michaelvas17 - attached is the information I was able to get using the steps you recommended (see image below).

    @bobkn - unfortunately, it is in fact an Intel driver, and from doing a little research online, it doesn't appear that they have provided drivers that are compatible with Windows 10 (nor will they). (See https://communities.intel.com/thread/49444, especially the final post).

    @macinric - I would love to do this, but unfortunately my monitor does not actually have a DP jack - just VGA and DVI.

    Any suggestions?? This is quite the problem.

    I'd go back to Wind 7 unless like me, you didn't keep your old windows seven backup system files. I deleted them off to gain space I've seen somewhere that my computer thinks it has 2 monitors hooked up to it. It doesn't. At some point I found programs opening up and trying to display onto the phantom monitor. I wish I had the expertise to better advise on a remedy for windows 10 latest update. I think someone within this thread fixed it recently so read though carefully. Good luck!

    Would I gain anything by connecting my monitor to the CPU with a DVI cord and not a VGA cord?

    I was using a DVI cord before encountering the problem and when I encountered the problem. So, no. It's possible that the pc thinks that it sees two monitors too. I'm sory but you're either gonna have to solve the problem or buy yourself a Display port cable.

    I would be more than happy to buy myself a Display Port cable, except that my monitor does not have a display port. So that option is off the table.
