Windows 10: Display requirements Solved

    Display requirements

    Win 10 upgrade from Win 7 Pro fails due to incompatible display.

    I am running a 1024x768 display, DirectX 11 (6.01.7601.17514), WDDM 1.1, all of which appear to meet or exceed the minimum requirements. What else could be wrong?

    Fill out your System Specs please.

    How to fill out System Specs for tenforums.

    See here: System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

    Of major interest is the Manufacture and full model number of the computer if purchased or the system board if custom built.

    A brand new display didn't fix the problem. At least I got a much nicer new display out of the deal.

    What is the EXACT error message you get?

    It goes through a system check when I start the Get Win 10 process. This is what it tells me. There is no amplification of what aspect of the display system is the problem. DirectX, drivers, and screen resolution all meet or exceed published requirements.

    Probably the display adapter (graphics card) rather than the display itself.

    Posting your system specs could save additional back-and-forth.

    Some possibilities here. The post from Andre Da Costa may be a valid work around for you.

    The graphics card is integrated into the motherboard. I guess I could try a new, separate one, but I'm running out of time.

    Thanks for the link. Unfortunately the uninstall procedure didn't help.

    I guess this computer is staying on Win7.

    How are you doing the upgrade? If via the Get Windows 10 icon in the system tray, you could try Media Creation Tool to download Windows 10 and create a flash drive or DVD to install with or create the ISO then you could create the flash drive or DVD to use.

    Provide more info in your System Specs like Laptop model number, video card make and model number, etc.
