    screen resolution changed after latest cumulative update


    My laptop downloaded and installed the latest major Windows 10 update this morning (took several hours!), and now my screen resolution has changed - the icons and text are all way too big. There are no system restore points available, so I cannot revert to earlier working version. If I go into settings and select display, I am only offered two possibile resolutions, and neither of these is suitable. What can I do?

    You may have to reinstall or update your graphics card drivers.

    Thanks for your reply, Doctor9fan. I ended up doing just that, although not without difficulty, as I could hardly navigate the screen etc on account of the oversize text and icons. Windows kept telling me that the drivers were up to date (but they obviously weren't), so I went to the AMD website, used their program to identify the most recent driver for my PC, and then downloaded and installed it.
