I don’t know why Microsoft insists on pushing buggy driver patches out Windows Update, but we saw another one late last month. Folks running Windows 10 on PCs with older Radeon video cards who had Automatic Update enabled got trashed. They found that their monitors could no longer display resolutions higher than 1,280 x 1,024, and that multi-monitor hookups would only mirror each other.
The cause? A buggy driver identified by Windows Update as “Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. - Display - 7/25/2017 12:00:00 AM - 126.96.36.199.” There’s a lengthy discussion about the driver transgressions on the Microsoft Answers forum, and another on the AMD forum.
