Thanks for reaching out to us on HP Support Forums. 🙂 I came across your post and would like to assist.


I understand that you have an HP Pavilion Notebook - 17-g121wm. I read that you have installed an SSD because the original hard drive failed. You have installed Win10 and the high definition is not working. 


I recommend you to perform the following steps to isolate the issue and arrive at a fix: 

Figure : Example of the display adapters in the device manager window.

Device Manager with display adapter selected

  • Expand display adapters. Right click on the driver drivers in it and select uninstall.
  • Close the device manager after the drivers are uninstalled. 
  • Restart the laptop.
  • Now, please install the latest display drivers from this link.
  • Yiu may restart the laptop one more time.


I genuinely hope the issue gets resolved without hassles and the unit works great. Let me know the outcome. All the best! 🙂
