    Hi. New here and new to Windows 10. Trying to install 10 on an old machine. Working great except for the video drivers. Been looking around and found this forum but nothing specific to my error, hence the thread.

    Windows is installing 8.970.100.9001 (13/01/2015) of the ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro driver but when it boots (before logon) it crashes with "we have run into a problem" VIDEO DXGKRNL FATAL ERROR . I can go into safe mode, delete the driver and boot back up, in which case it will reinstall the driver and works fine UNTIL I play a video or something video intensive which gives the same error. I can install the basic video driver which works but it does not have the correct resolution (1366x768 or something like that) and the refresh rate make it unpleasant.

    I appreciate it is an old machine so I don't really want to get a new graphics card but would be great to get it working until I get a new computer. I'm just wondering if this is a known error or if anyone knows a quick fix etc etc. It is an MSI 7250 motherboard (if I got the number right) but is otherwise a home grown desktop, so no other model number.
