No - tried that and the highest resolution available is 1600x900 but if I choose that, the display shows 1024x768!  

So at the moment I have to use DVI and then RDP to my other machines which is really annoying.


[EDIT]

Solved it. Went to the Catalyst Control Centre and turned off use EDID data as below.



Once I did that the display adapter showed many more resolutions including 1920x1080 which I could select and use.

It seems this AOC monitor is reporting incomplete EDID data for some reason.

I've had a couple of issues:

 

     

  1. On a Sony Vaio E Series laptop, there seems to be a known bug with the discrete video card driver which puts Win10 in an endless boot loop.  Need to disable the video card and rely on Intel graphics.
  2. On same laptop, on waking after sleep the fan runs at full speed constantly.  Seem to need to restart to stop this
  3. MS Money won't work on Win10; it needs IE6 to be present, but you can't install this (or IE8) with Win 10

Thanks, I had seen that, always a bit dubious about tweaking the registry but I'll give it a go

lchiu7: I have now updated 4 machines to Windows 10. Only one via the offer from Windows (a desktop), the other 3 via the downloaded USB. All have gone well so far.

What I did find interesting was on two of my machines I have an older Nvidia GeForce 8400 graphics card. There are no Windows 10 drivers for the card and when Windows finally reboots, it comes up in an ugly 1024x768 mode on my 1029 HD monitor. Initially I tried downloading the GeForce drivers for Windows 8.1 but the installation program says no compatible hardware.

Then Windows wanted a reboot following an Update and how when I choose Display Settings/Advanced 1920x1080 is not a choice. And the Nvidia Control Panel is now installed. I guess while Nividia might not have drivers on their site, they gave something to Microsoft to distribute via an update

Even more interesting there is now support for my Adaptec AIC-7870 SCSI controller (emulated) which mean I can access my SCSI scanners. That is nice.



You need the correct and latest Nvidia driver: 353.62-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql.exe (or 32bit)

I had the same problem as you with one computer, Ugly 1024x768 display with a Geforce GT610 graphics card. rebooting fixed that, I then installed the above correct driver.

My other computer also with a GT610 graphics card was automatically updated to the above driver by the Windows 10 install.


No joy with that driver. I get an error the graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware.

The video card I have installed is Nvidia GeForce 8400GS and currently has a Nvidia driver installed 29/6/15 9.18.13.4174

Since I didn't install that I guess it must have come from Windows Update.


I had this issue. I downloaded the latest Intel Chipset INF update utility, installed, rebooted and the my geforce GTS450 appeared. Windows downloaded a driver. I then downloaded from Nvidia.

Not sure it would work for me since all my machines use AMD CPU's and not Intel chipsets of course.

I cannot get to some places on our laptop.  For example, I want to add a user/change user but the control panel window only briefly flashes up on screen.

Anyone else seen this and know of a fix?

I have installed Windows 10 on my HP Stream 7 tablet. The Edge browser will only open the desktop versions of web pages rather than the mobile view. For example if I try and open the Geekzone mobile site it defaults to the desktop view. similarly when I try other sites such as www.shutterfly.com it opens the desktop web pages rather than the pages displayed for phones and small tablets. Anyone know how to change this or force it to open mobile web pages.
