    Intel 3150 vs Windows 10 graphics

    Have been running Win10 on my little Samsung N145 laptot more or less as a test bed to see how well it can run on underpowered machines. I was in the insider programme so was running it on everything I could. Had this old laptot kicking around everyone had forgotten the password for so stuck it on here as well.

    Had to install the 2GB memory before it would accept updates but it was plodding along quite successfully, if not quickly, until recently. Now running eval build 14931.

    The login screen is now a block of white, any text is black squares.
    The start menu looks like this:

    and I can't get into the settings page through the button on the start menu. However, if I type control panel into search I can get into the old style no problem so it's something with the fancy win10 graphics and displays.

    I know it's the GMA driver somehow, if I manually go into device manager and update the driver to the Microsoft basic display adapter it all works, I can see the start menu etc but I can't increase the resolution above 800x600.

    Have tried the "latest" drivers off Intel's site. It doesn't list 10 as an OS option so tried the recommended Win7-64 drivers. Warning that they were older than what I had which I ignored but same outcome.

    Is this as far as this laptot can go with Win10?

    It's because there isn't any drivers for it on Windows 10(at least official). It'll need to go back to Windows 7 or on the last build of 10 where the GMA 3150 worked.
