    HP 6830s graphics driver

    gibbo

      Hello I have an HP Compaq 6830s running Windows 10 64 bit (1607) the graphics chip is an  ATI Mobility HD 3430 and the driver at present is an AMD version 8.970.100.9001. the native resolution is 1400 X 900. when I run the latest big Win 10 upgrade "Creators Upgrade" Microsoft ditches the graphics driver and installs a basic one with limited resolution. Microsoft tell me this is because the old driver is not compatible with the upgrade and AMD have not yet provided a driver that will work with this chip and the upgrade. Will a new driver be available ? Any helpfull suggestions welcome.

            Thank you for the answer. Does this mean my HP laptop is "finished" ? No work around ? Can I permanently block the "Creators" upgrade ? If all else fails I will go back to Win 7, gives me a few more years. Are there many who will be in this position thanks to Microsoft deciding we need these extra bells and whistles.

                You can still use your laptop for a while you just won't see anymore updates for it.  And I won't even get into a discussion about Microsoft...

                  The 3000 series graphics chips have never had a Win10 driver furnished by AMD. The only drivers that are/have been available are from Microsoft. AMD will not be making any drivers for these chips.

                  AMD does not have drivers for the Creators version of Win10. They will make one available after the official release.
