    I think Windows 10 actually supports ATi Radeon HD 3450.

    I'll describe a situation: every different computer I connect to my HP 19" WXGA monitor on my workbench prompts it to go through its built-in Auto Adjust to fit the graphics adapter settings. There is a short period before that finishes where there is a black border on all sides of the display, when finished the screen is filled out as it should be.
