The graphics driver shows as “Microsoft Basic Display Adapter” after upgrading to Windows 10
After upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, my display adapter driver in Windows 10 is showing as the “Microsoft Basic Display Adapter” instead of the specific driver for my graphics card, resulting in poor graphics quality.Why did that happen and how do I fix it?

During the upgrade, Windows searches for the best Windows 10 driver for your machine. In a small set of circumstances, it may not be able to immediately find that driver at the time of upgrade. In these cases you may find that your Display Adapter
is listed as “Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.”
Windows will scan for and install the proper driver in a short period of time after the upgrade, depending on internet connection availability.
If you find that you are in this situation and want to get the proper driver more quickly, you can launch Windows Update and scan directly for updates to find the latest driver.
