Install KB4057291 to fix graphics issues on Windows 10
If you’ve been experiencing various graphics bugs on your Windows 10 computer, download and install KB4057291 to fix all these annoying issues.
Microsoft recently released this update aimed at fixing display resolution issues on AMD graphics cards.
Multi-monitor display and display resolution are not working for some AMD legacy cards (for example, Radeon HD 2000, HD3000, and HD4000 series) that mistakenly receive driver 22.214.171.124.
This update will install a driver to restore multi-monitor display and resolution control capabilities.
As a quick reminder, there were only three display resolutions available on this type of cards: 800×600, 1024×768 and 1280×1024.
So, even if you display is capable of supporting a wide variety of resolutions, as long as you’re running AMD legacy card drivers version 126.96.36.199, you won’t be able to access your device’s full potential.
Update KB4057291 fixes this problem on Windows 10 version 1703 (Creators Update) and Windows 10 version 1709 (Fall Creators Update).
