According to Supported Operating Systems for Intel® Graphics Products Intel doesn't support SandyBridge under Windows 10.
However Microsoft offers driver 188.8.131.5259 at Microsoft Update Catalog
Probably it has already been installed automatically on your rig, since you have no trouble.
Check the version in the Intel control panel.
This is exactly the driver that is installed; 184.108.40.20659.
As I mentioned, I have no problem with the driver and only my question is why is it perfect using the TV as a monitor and on another monitor (same resolution), it is not working.
If i understand you correctly the straight HDMI/HDMI and DVI/DVI cables work fine, but the HDMI/DVI adapter fails?
Probably the adapter has some fancy electronics that confuses your rig. This is just a guess though.
I'm also thinking this, although months ago I had the same problem with another minipc zotac and when taking a technician, he corrected saying that he installed the appropriate driver for the chipset and so the minipc worked on that same monitor with that same cable.
- cable 1, is what came originally with the monitor and use it on another pc, works perfect on the monitor.
- cable 2, is what I use this minipc in my tv, works perfect.
- cable 3, is what I use this minipc on the monitor and displays the black screen.
I do not use adapter because I have the proper cables for each connection.
Judging from this article Digital Visual Interface - Wikipedia there are some DVI variations.
Make sure to have the right one with all the pins connected, probably using an Ohmmeter.
Otherwise i'm running out of clues
I checked with more interest now and found that in fact it may be the DVI variations.
The images show the DVI input of the monitor (A), the original cable, which is perfect with another pc (B) and the hdmi / dvi cable that is not working (C).
So, I'm going to buy another cable that has the DVI connector just like the original and might fix it. I'll also get an adapter (D) as the last attempt to fix it.
If it does not resolve, the switch option for a monitor with HDMI input remains.
The topic started with Sandy Bridge's lack of support for Windows 10 but was diverted to the DVI cable issue, however, it's fixed.
The solution was to use a simple DVI / HDMI adapter, using the same original monitor cable as pictured.
The question is still a question is ...
What's the point of Intel declaring on their site that second generation Celeron processor computers, Sandy Brigde, do not have Windows 10 support?
I'm using a pc with this setting, and everything is perfect with Windows 10, in the video driver aspect for Intel HD Graphics.
Can you tell what exactly this term means: "No Windows 10 support"?
It means that Intel has placed these processors (and chipsets) into end-of-life status and they are not analyzing any issues that appear with these systems and are not providing any updated drivers for these systems (Windows 10 included). What drivers are out there is what you have to play with. In some cases, Microsoft's legacy/compatibility drivers will provide support for the solution - but just barely and issues will exist (graphics performance, for example, can be awful). As a result of Intel dropping support for these older processors and chipsets, Microsoft has also dropped support for many of these systems and will not allow them to be updated to the latest versions (Creator's Update, for example).
Hope that explains it,
Yes, I understood everything you explained and thank you for that.
For a layman, not having support is understanding as something that does not work and in the case, I figured I could not use Windows 10 with my system, but so far everything is fine. Thank you for your explanations.
Well, think of it this way: With this status in place, if something doesn't work, Intel and Microsoft are not going to do anything about it.
