This is a little vague, are you saying that you can not get 1920x1200 to display on your HP ZR30w through the DisplayPort?

AMD has stated that there are drivers available for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 via Windows Update, driver version 8.970.100.9001 If I am not mistaken. Alternatively, you can install the last Catalyst drivers released for the ATI Mobility FireGL V5700. This is AMD Catalyst 13.1 for Windows 8 64-bit, the latest OS they decided to support before dropping it into the legacy ball-pit. Try the Windows Update drivers first, and If that does not work, try the AMD Catalyst 13.1 driver package. I recall Windows 10 accepting Windows 8.1/8/7 drivers for compatibility, so that older drivers will work.

Why waste all that time with W10?
Go back to W7 and you should be flying...

Most of my machines have W7 and haven't had any Micro$haft updates for over 2 years, and they all run as good as anything.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly! :mrgreen:
