Hello! I just recently updated my Acer Aspire Timeline X 3920TG to windows 10. The installer reported that there should be no problems, and all seemed well, installation went painless.
However, I soon discovered some problems with the drivers for the graphics card, an AMD Radeon HD 6550M.
- The card is reported as a "5000 series" card, not 6000. Some people have mentioned that it is just a rebranded 5000 card, but it has shown up as 6550M before.
- The HDMI connector is not working, and as such I cannot use my TV for a second screen. Worked fine before installing windows 10, but not now.
- Civ 5 does not start with DX9 any more. DX 11 works fine.
- Way of the Samurai 4 has started lagging seriously. Not much framedrop, but everything is in slow motion, and it responds very slowly to controls. Again, worked fine in windows 7.
I have googled for solutions, reinstalled drivers, killed all drivers and tried to reinstall both directly from AMD, Acer and Microsofts update service, but to no avail.
Please help. Is this a lost cause or is there a solution?
