    AMD Radeon 5xxx and Windows 10 Pro. Video playback black screen.

    I updated to Win 10 Pro 64 just after christmas, lets just say it was not problem free but It worked. Everything was great and I am impressed -

    except for Video playback that is. I get sound but no picture.

    Tried several media players but no joy. Tried with the W10 driver but it did not recognise screen.

    Graphics are Radeon HD 5xxx series running 15.201.1151.1008-151104a-296217E.
    Processor Core I5 M430 @2.27
    Motherboard Sony C603X24W

    Can anybody enlighten me ?

    No enlightenment available here, but...

    As it's a laptop, it's best to get the drivers from Sony. Unfortunately, the latest ones I see at their support site appear to be from 2010. I hope that the drivers you have already are adequate.

    Was the VLC video player among those that you tried? I mention that one because it doesn't seem to require external codecs.
