    I have a computer which Im using since 5 years.
    Attached is the config.

    Installed windows 10 on it today.
    But the graphics is not going to 1920x1080.

    The monitor is full HD and was working perfectly fine with windows 7 ultra.

    That seems to be a driver problem. If you got the Monitor at 1920x1080 in older Windows (7, 8, 8.1) use that older driver for to try.

    Keep in mind, you need to UN-INSTALL the new driver first! Do NOT restart the computer after done that, just start the Setup for the older driver fo0r to test that will works!

    Also keep in mind that the Graphic Card and the Monitor could run on that resolution!

    Have you tried setting the resolution manually?

    Have you tried updating the current driver thru Device Management?

    Even for an older Graphic Card, you could still get driver for older Windows!!

    Find the latest video driver for your hardware for the latest windows os you can find it for. For instance if there's a driver for 8.1, use that. It'll work if you install it right.

    You should try 'driverpack solution'. Perhaps it could help you with a driver that is compatible with your graphics.

    This has worked for me using an older card that is no longer manufactured, I used the vista drivers under comparability mode to install it for windows 7 and it worked.

    Try to see if the manufacture of the card has released new drivers or beta drivers that will get your resolution back up.

    Not much info. AMD chipset based mainboard. Nvidia Graphics.
    Any bangs! in device manager? What's the max res, 1400x1050?
    Maybe it's detecting your monitor can't handle higher res.
    If your using vga, try connecting dvi instead. Does the monitor have an .inf file you can install??? Just a thought...

    The same was doing FullHD 1920x1080 till yesyerday.

    But it doesn't show anymore after the upgrade.


    Shall I download the older firmware and install it again and see if it works ?

    So goto the website of mother board and install the windows 7 compatible drivers ?
    And simply install and restart the PC ?

    and then switch off auto updates of the windows 10 ?

    Is it so ?
