- backup your system (use at own risk – modifying the registry can have side effects and precautions such as backing up your data should be taken before modifying your PC
- download the .reg file
- double-click the .reg file and click OK to import it into your registry
- Having trouble importing a .reg file when downloading via the MS Edge browser in Windows 10? That’s probably because it is auto-renaming to .txt for safety. You can rename it back to .reg or import the .txt file from within regedit.exe. Or just download with Internet Explorer or FireFox instead.
- Reboot OR follow these steps to reset the Intel display driver
- open Device Manager
- open the Display Adapters
- right-click “Intel HD Graphics…” GPU and click “disable”
- click “Yes”
- after the monitors stop flashing, right-click the Intel GPU again and click “enable”
- open System – Display – Advanced display settings in control panel and choose your preferred resolution
If the regkey option doesn’t work for you it may be that the latest Windows Updates have broken it.
- Try this generic driver from Windows Update: http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msdownload/update/driver/drvs/2016/10/20940638_b3707c2673928e8ab70a602a1cf89df3665a3b54.cab
- You’ll need to uncompress the .CAB file and follow the “have-disk” install directions to force-update over the Microsoft provided driver.
- Then use the intel.com instructions to manually add the resolutions you want.
