I've been working on a very old (2008) Acer computer Aspire M1641. After replacing a dead hard drive and updating the OS to Windows 10 it starts and runs fine.


However, when the owner took it back he found that a new issue started where the monitor image become washed out after the computer is running for a while.


I've gone to Acer and Nvidia neither helped much. Nvidia's auto detect can't detect anything probably since the video is on board.


Acer gives an update program which also doesn't detect any updates needed.


So, does anyone know what might cause this and how it might be fixed if it can?

I suspect the video card is not compatible with Windows 10.


You can force the compatibility check by entering the following in a Command prompt...


schtasks.exe /Run /TN "\Microsoft\Windows\Application Experience\Microsoft Compatibility Appraiser"
