Windows 7: Incompatible display adapter has been disabled

05 Sep 2019   #1

Windows 7 64bit pro
Incompatible display adapter has been disabled


I installed a video editor to trial it, Power Director 17 ultra by Cyberlink, I then rebooted the PC and saw for the first time ever this message appear lower right, in a yellow box.
Incompatible display adapter has been disabled.

Just what has that prog gone and done ?

I run an Nvidia GTX970 and can run my flight sim with all effects and settings on max, something another onboard graphics thing could never manage. I ran the sim and all was as normal.

This must refer thus to some other display thing that either PD17 installed , or its resurrected.

Did PD17 disable what it had initiated or did win7 disable it ?

Either way I am very pissed off.

I boot up PC a few days later and its declaring that yet again.

How can I solve that ?

This sheds some light on your problem-

I would ask CyberLink customer service about it.
