Windows 10: Only MBDD in WIN10 PRO 64bits Solved

    Only MBDD in WIN10 PRO 64bits


    I upgrade win10 pro 64bits to 1709, but my ASUS built-in display card is only ATI3200.
    I found the display resolution can set max to 1280x1080 while my monitor should best use 1366x768.

    The display driver show MBDD "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter" (version 10.0.16299.15) with that resolution or lower, and it cannot be uninstall.

    I search / google in many places but still unable to find a solution, any hint ?

    Thank you.

    Hello Matthew and welcome to the forums. The issue you have seems to be fairly common, especially with older ATI cards. Try downloading an older driver for your card from AMD and installing it. That should solve your problem. The problem is that you do not have a proper driver for your card installed. Try installing one and see if that helps. Most have reported they had to revert back to a 2 year old driver, but personally I would try a newer one first. If that does not work, uninstall that driver, run Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode, then use an older driver.
