This is driving me nuts every time I switch on my HP Pavilion laptop.
Short story is that I reset the comp after problems with Windows 10.
Ever since I've had this stupid message each time I boot up.

Googled, tried checking all hardware settings / trouble shooting / etc.

Any ideas? It doesn't hurt. It doesn't make any difference, it just annoys me :(

Are you still using W10 or have you reverted to an earlier Windows?

Windows 10 - everything's fine and running smoothly. Just get that irritating message each time I start up. :nnc:

What GFX card do you have, Lil?

If it's an AMD Radeon, try dumping the new drivers that W10 installed and putting the old ones on.

You'll need to prevent W10 being "helpful", or it'll keep updating them to the duff ones.

Yep, I only update drivers if the actual hardware drivers tell me there are updates.
I never use driver updates suggested by Windows, any version.
I intend to live forever. So far, so good - But, too many Birthdays can kill you.

Just had a look again at the Radeon settings, and there's an option to restore to factory defaults.
Do you think I should? :bolt:

It sure looks like that's what's wrong. As I said, I suspect Windoze decided what the best driver is and, as is common, decided totally wrongly.

Have you got the original CD with the drivers on? Either way, restoring the settings might do the job, if your lucky.
