Solved Lost HD resolution after upgrade


I downloaded and installed AMD's recommended driver ... Maybe it will load through the CMD function.
As I said, I installed Radeon Software. It automatically detects the correct driver to use for you during the install, downloads and installs it.

I believe you! I'm now trying to find whatever software Radeon has that I haven't already tried installing.

upto you if you want to try it by changing registry values
this brings up my 1600 x 900 recommended setting
you could change it to your desired setting
BEWARE other settings in this key WILL need to be changed as well
Take a screenshot of the regedit on the other comp where the default is as required

IT'S WORKING!!! Thanks primarily to Bree and her screenshots, it became clear that the Adapter Type, rather than driver, was the culprit. As Bree stated, the Microsoft Basic Display Driver, "basic" being the key word, is used by default if another adapter isn't present. Loading drivers alone didn't help, and it took some searching to learn how to change the adapter from Microsoft to AMD Radeon. (Evidently, losing Radeon settings during an OS upgrade are a common and annoying occurrence. Meanwhile, the number of completely useless "fix-it solutions" on the Web is staggering. No, I'm definitely not referring to this forum!) After stumbling across amdcleanuputility, I ended up with a second useless driver, but the real help came from "How to Get Back Missing Display Graphic Driver in Device Manager" at www.youtube.com/watch?v=cmTxhbHG2p8

There are still a few "funnies" with Win11 that I may or may not be willing to live with, but it's great to be back at 1920 x 1080. More so, it feels good to have solved the problem and learned a few things along the way. Once more, thanks to everyone for your suggestions! :)
