    Hello! I have a Dell Inspiron 546 that -- incredibly -- successfully downloaded the Windows 10 May 2019 update. All is running well, except my screen is stretched, and my resolution is low -- 1028-720. I can't find an update for my old ATI 3200 HD graphics adapter, but I did find a compatible Graphics Driver for only about $45. Am I correct that if I replace the graphics driver, my display problems will be solved? Thanks so much, all! Folkiephil

    Whoa....you never ever pay for a driver.

    First check your display settings and set it to recommended. If you go to Dells support site you can download the driver from there. You will need to input your service tag number.....

    Thanks so much! As a relatively uneducated techie, I think I meant to say, "graphics card" as opposed to "graphics drive." I have tried for weeks to update the driver, to no avail. As I mentioned, I found a new graphics card that is compatible with my Dell Inspiron 546......I'm just not sure it will solve my problem. Thanks again for responding!

    For $45 you could buy a new (basic) graphics card that is supported with windows 10.
