ATI Radeon HD 4200 stopped playing 1080Pp or i

This computer was new a month ago. It played 1080 P or 1080 i video such as you tube or dailymotion. Now it will only play video at 720 p. Is it a driver update? my system says all drivers are updated.

    I think it can be a driver issue. Check what version you got for your ATi HD 4200. Here's some instructions to check the version, report back in this thread afterwards. After that it could be a good idea to head over to the AMD website and look for a driver there, to make sure you get the correct one. Also, the latest driver is not always the best one... but it's a good rule to check the latest.

    Thanks. The ATI 4200 hd driver says it is version 8.733.0.0. I am looking now at AMD site.
  3. The AMD software installed an earlier driver version for the ATI 4200HD, so let's see how it works.
    Thanks again.
  4. OK, the problem still persists. I'll include a report showing the earlier driver.

  5. I can now play YouTube at 1080P but not Dailymotion (which I could before).
    I checked the settings of Adobe flash player to make sure I was allowing Dailymotion to store data on my machine.

    I suspect the remaining problem may be with the Dailymotion site.
    Thank you for your help with the drivers.
  6. You're welcome!
