    My graphic card change when I finished upgraded to windows 10


    So, I have a Sony Vaio VPCEA25FG, the spec is i3 2.27 Ghz, 4 gb of ram, and ATI Radeon 5145 when I was windows 7, but after I upgraded to windows 10, the graphics card, change to ATI Radeon 4500, what should I do to get the 5145?

    Thx for the answer, and sorry for my bad English

    Do the testing first before you spend too much time on how or why Windows renamed your hardware.

    In this instance, it may be a case of 'Windows knows best!'

    Your laptop includes an Intel CPU with built-in graphics (I3-350M), and separate AMD Radeon Mobility 5145 graphics.

    I have no personal experience with this, but I believe that the laptop uses both graphics devices: the Intel one for low power consumption, the Radeon for when higher performance is needed.

    I think that you need to have drivers for both installed. Are your graphics really displayed as "Radeon 4500"? That seems strange.

    AMD drivers: Desktop


    (The Mobility 500 series is supposed to be supported.)

    I find the Intel graphics driver download selections to be confusing, but the I3-350m may not have drivers newer than Windows 7 available. (They ought to work, though.)
