This entry is to confirm Intel GMA 500 in Acer Aspire One Windows 7 driver still works under latest windows 10 update
windows 10 has updated Acer Aspire One A0751h-52Yr today to 1607 (KB4010250) (today is 08-March-2017)
I was fed up with the restricted screen size of the windows 10 built in driver, and researched (on this site) for a solution.
This Solution worked first time, I now have 1366x 768, even the colours look better.
I found "GMA 500 is not compatible ......etc." but it is locked for me to enter this update. GMA 500 is not compatible with Windows 10. Is there a new driver available or under development?
The instructions there are : Thanks to Techpotato.

I know this thread is old, but it is the highest ranked on Google for the Intel GMA 500, so I figured that if I replied here it might help people.
There is a generic GMA 500 driver from Intel for 32 bit Windows 7 that has worked for me on netbooks under Windows 10:
Unzip it onto a memory stick and plug it in.
On the Windows 10 target machine:
1.Right-click on the start icon and choose "Device Manager"
2.Expand "Display Adapters" and right-click on the generic display device
3.Select "Update Driver Software..."
4.Select "->Browse my computer for driver software"
5.Click the [Browse] button; select the folder containing the extracted files
6.Click the [Next] button
7.Wait (it is probably an under-powered netbook, after all).
This driver actually worked better on Windows 10 than the OEM driver (Fujitsu) worked on Windows 7.
