    Radeon 3200 HD in Windows 10

    shm

      Has anyone found a solution as to why the onboard Radeon 3200 HD does not detect PNP monitors or permit 1920x1080 video modes in Windows 10 Pro x64?

          I don't think anyone's been looking.

           

          Are you experiencing problems? A little more detail would help. Thanks.

            Probably because the HD3200 graphics do not meet the requirements for Windows 10 and Microsoft installs a basic driver to allow web surfing.

             

            The following Discrete AMD Radeon™ Graphics products support up to WDDM 1.1 and DirectX® 10.1:

            • ATI Radeon™ HD 4000 Series /ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4000 Series Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ HD 3000 Series /ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3000 Series Graphics
            • ATI Radeon™ HD 2000 Series /ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 2000 Series Graphics

             

            These graphics products must be installed using display driver version: 8.970.100.9001. This driver is provided as a courtesy and only available via Windows Update. Please enable Windows Update and allow it to detect and install the appropriate driver.

             

            NOTE: ATI Radeon™ HD 4000/ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4000, ATI Radeon™ HD 3000/ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3000, and ATI Radeon™ HD 2000/ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 2000 Series Graphics reached peak performance optimization on October, 2013. No additional driver releases are planned for these products.

                Yes, I did in fact get version 8.970.100.9001 from Windows Update and it exhibits this problem.  Odd to find HD 3200 does not meet Windows 10 requirements when Intel 965 Broadwater graphics from 2006 works just fine!

                    Windows® 10 will install the default Microsoft® Basic Display Driver (MBDD) for these graphics adapters. MBDD provides basic display functionality (low resolutions and color) on a single monitor but DOES NOT support:

                    • Display scaling control
                    • Multiple displays
                    • Display rotation
                    • Video capture
                    • Power settings
                    • VSync control
                    • Brightness control on integrated display panels
                    • AMD Catalyst™ Control Center

                     

                     

                    What you are choosing between is using a crippled OS (W10) or a fully functional OS (W7) that was designed for your graphics card and works perfectly well. You gain nothing from the OS upgrade.
