Okay. This means you have an intel graphics accelerator, specifically the G41 chipset.

And what is happening is Windows 10 does not support this hardware out the box, and is using it's own "generic" driver instead.

It is VERY likely that we can fix this ...

Download the file on Intel's own site (Note it's 40MB). Where you can see they specifically mention that their users have problems relating to display resolutions and this driver was released specifically to fix that.

You will probably have to extract the ZIP file, go to your Device Manager, and install the driver like this.

Hardly, but it helps knowing where to look. Glad you're sorted. Smiley

Ok, here is one for the boffins. Not serious, but annoying. Since I loaded Win 10 the screen on my laptop goes dark when I change the power input, when I go on battery or back on power. I have to take the power cable out again, put the computer to sleep, put the cable back in and start it up again. I also lose my mouse (touchpad) if I close the lid. The setting is to do nothing if the lid closes. Again I have to put it to sleep and wake it up to get the mouse back. Any ideas? Like I said, annoying, but I can life with it.

Maybe related to the "Brightness level reversed bug"?
