Radeon 4350 driver issue again

Hi, guys.

Old tower died, so I got a nice refurbished one with a slick video card, supposed to support four different types of connections. Had four of one connection that fits no cable I have ever seen -- looks like an HDMI port with one side lopped off straight up and down, only bevels on one side.

So, since that card had no way to connect to my monitor, I put in my Radeon 4350 card from my old tower. Windows 10 on the new machine insists that the Microsoft Basic Display Driver, which has no idea of the chipset or card type, is the best driver for the card.

I found what purported to be Windows 10 drivers for the card, downloaded the tool. I have ATI Catalyst on here now, but when I try and install drivers, I get the same thing, the 13-year-old basic driver is all it will find. And the old driver won't drive my monitor at its 1920x1080 resolution.

If I try to manually install the new driver, the system wants an .inf file for it, and I have no idea where this installer would have installed such a file, or how to point to it.

The best fix will be to get the supplier to give me the promised display card, but in the meantime I'd like to get this card working. Any thoughts?

That's a display port and is very common on many cards.
I have the same situation, only with an nVidia card so I just bought a cable that is display port on one end and hdmi on the other, works fine.
