Windows 10: Resolution dropped - and no option to increase
Resolution dropped - and no option to increase
I have a PC with an NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti graphics card, and use a Samsung S23C650 monitor .
This is normally set to resolution of 1920 x 1080
Today I run IOBIT driver update - and it updated some drivers ... and now my screen resolution is way off ... set to 1024 x 768.
If I go to settings it does not show anything higher than 1024 x 768 and if I go to adapter (NVIDIA GTX 560 Ti) it only lists modes up to 1024 x 768.
Looks like this driver update has messed up my display adapter ..... anybody know how to recover ?
NVIDIA adapter shows driver 126.96.36.19933
You need to rollback the driver to the previous version. Here is a guide to show you how.
Roll Back Driver to Previous Version in Windows 10
Re-download the driver and remove iobit driver update
OK - tried
Rolled back - reboot, still the same.
Run Windows update driver, it updated but after reboot still the same.
Go here: Drivers - Download NVIDIA Drivers and download proper WDDM drivers.
Do not rely on those auto updaters for any components you can get drivers for straight thru the source. They "update" drivers only according to what someone else thinks you should have. Not reliable source.
I did go to nVidia site .. every time I tried to check what driver I needed it failed - it needs Java .. and my browsers do not use Jave due to security risk.
I did manually install Java on new browser just to do this ... and even though Java installed it still failed asking for Java.
I have asked on nVidia forum what correct driver is ... no answer yet.
Try from this address: System Memory for Intel(R) Desktop Board DH61BE it should start downloading Java or not.

Is the 376.33 the correct driver ?
W10 installed 188.8.131.5233 as the latest driver.
If it is I will happily install.
Just wanted to check as numberring seems so different.
W10 installed 184.108.40.20633 = 376.33 so it seams newest driver is already installed.
Ah ... didn't realise it numbered that way.
My neighbor was carrying my laptop for me, which was a bad decision on my part. I do keep it in a soft carrying case. Anyway, he accidentally dropped it onto cement ( fell a few feet, as he was in a wheelchair). I immediately checked it out and it...

This is old news, but I only learned it today. Apple has dropped support for its Windows version of the Safari browser, but has given little publicity to the decision.
