Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter on Windows 10

__ Original Surface Pro __

w/ Microsoft Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter

Upgraded to Windows 10

The VGA adapter is not being discovered via Control Panel - Display - Screen Resolution - Detect

I can't find any support files/drivers on the Microsoft Support site - where can I obtain the drivers?

Any other ideas on how I can encourage Windows 10 to find the adapter and add a second monitor/VGA Projector?

Hello Bob Heitzman

Sorry to hear you are having trouble with the MDP-VGA adapter for your Surface Pro.

With the MDP adapter connecting Surface to an external display that is powered up, check for updates and install.

Take a look at Device manager.  Are there any banged out or Other devices showing?

Try different cables and adapters, see if your connection improves. 

Best regards
