    Can not get 1920x1080 resolution back since upgrade to Windows 10


    Since upgrade to windows 10 yesterday my screen resolution is wrong. 1920x1080 is now not available.
    Graphics card is ATI Radeon X1600 (Pc is quite old) Have looked on AMD website and cannot find driver.
    Have tried windows update, but all up to date. Display adapter shows as microsoft basic display adapter.
    any help please, current resolution is not good for my eyes.

    The latest driver I can find for that card is for Vista, it looks as though it may not be possible to run the card on Windows 10 unfortunately.

    If Vista is the last supported OS, OP should be able to use those drivers in Windows 10 without issue. I have an old Auzentech X-Fi Prelude audio soundcard using Vista x64 drivers on Windows 10 x64 OS. Also used the same Vista drivers in Windows 7 x64 as well. Have not encountered any real issues using Vista drivers on any of them.

    Thanks for info, have solved problem by putting a spare graphics card in PC and all now ok. Windows 10 automatically updated driver for card.
