M57: Graphics Device Driver Error After Recent Win 10 Update 1803 (Installed GT 710)

2018-05-18, 4:33 AM

Windows 10 Home Version 1803 up to date, Lenovo M57 PC Intel Duo Core E6750 2.66 GHz, 3 Gb RAM, 32 bit

 

Had two sessions with Microsoft tech support for a problem which first became obvious in Windows Live Mail. The main page of the app does not format correctly, and has some text reflected vertically from the end of strings and other errors of things misplaced. I later found some errors in browsers. MS Tech Support removed the virtual device for display and the current driver. The first person left me with the original problem without finalizing the chat session after trying several fixes. The second person removed the virtual device and replaced it with generic 2006 MS display adapter support. My resolution is now 1280x1024 on a monitor which is normally at 1920x1080. Things are able to be read, but the resolution is not in proportion.

 

In Device Manager, Display Adapter now says Microsoft Basic Display Adapter, but the actual on board adapter is from Intel. The driver used is from 2006, and does not offer recommended resolution for the monitor.

 

How do I use the actual Intel graphics adapter and get a driver for the current version of W10 that will display correctly?

There is not a graphics driver for that version of Win 10, or any version of Win 10.  Your Intel processor / graphics processor is not supported by Intel for Win 10, is several generations earlier than Win 10 is supported (Ivy Bridge.)  One option is to install a low-end Nvidia graphics card that will have Win 10 drivers.  Since your system has PCIe version 1.1, you should install a card that has PCIe 2.0, and not the current 3.0 (which can have compatibility issues with 1.1.)

By the continuing operation of the PC my graphics card was supported by Windows 10 until the most recent 1803 update. The monitor worked perfectly well for the 3 years or more that i have had windows 10.

With each major release of Win 10, it evolves further away from the Windows 8 drivers for the Chipset and Graphics processor that you are running, so there's increased potential for compatibility problems.   Have you considered undoing the 1803 update?

Thank you for your help! I was able to find a PCIe 2.0 graphics card very good price. Install was easy though involved replacing the bracket for half height. Monitor resolution is even better than before the Windows update which did not support the on-board graphics card. And HDMI connection is what i wanted as well.

Great news!  Can you tell us the manufacturer and model number of the card you installed, that could help other owners.

(Forums would not let me get into my Bobbear43 username.) This solution is not complete. Nvidia tells me that they will not have any future versions of the driver for the ZOTAC FeForce GT710. While the card supports the monitor, it is 64-bit, which is not what I was told when purchasing. There are instances when the screen goes black and then recovers either in total or within a window. Chrome becomes unusable at times, so don't use it. Videos did not work in Facebook until I starting using IE for Facebook. Edge does not work. There is no longer support in Windows 10 for the graphics card which came with the M57 machine. Can anyone recommend a replacement 32-bit graphics card which does have support for Windows 10?

 

Replacing the PC is really not a solution for me. It is 12 (?) years old, was updated to a SSD hard disk, and still performs better than my very recent Ideapad 320 when that one is working correctly. The PC is my repository for data, fotos, etc. Yes, it is backed up, external SSD drive and cloud. I just want it to keep working.

Just so I understand your question correctly:  Are you reporting that Nvidia will not have any further Win 10 32-bit drivers for this card beyond the Mar 2018, ver. 391.35, driver I see on their download site?   What is it that is 64-bit?   Thx.  And be aware that a card with more than 1 GB will eat into your 3 GB system memory space.  2 GB, which many newer cards are, will reduce your system memory to 2 GB.
