Display Driver issue on Dell R410 running Windows Server 2016

We have a Dell R410 server and decided that we would like to upgrade the OS to Windows Server 2016 standard. Once the OS was installed we are unable to change the display settings from 640x480. Seems like we are missing the driver. Tried looking up at Dell and Matrox all drivers that we found are failing. Can someone please let us know if there is a compatible driver for Windows Server 2016. The Grapics card on the server is a Matrox G200eW.

R410 does not support 2016, try the 2012 driver and seeifthat works.
You could try looking at the ven_ of the graphics controller, to identify the controller and see whether you can get the drivers from Intel, and, nvidia ....

Why don't you just add another PCI-E video card.. i.e. AMD Radeon HD6450?

use Snappy drivers (https://sdi-tool.org/) or Driver Pack Solution (https://drp.su/en) to automatically detect your hardware and install the missing drivers, even of you don't know the components or brands.

Hello Sam,

I tried both the tools you advised and still could not get it to work. I get a message that the driver required cannot be found in the Driver Package. I guess I don't really have much of an option than to accept the fact that it cannot be done unless we add another display adaptor which is not an option at this point.

Thank You all for your help.

Be careful to the Russian Driver Pack Solution (https://drp.su/en) I have seen systems infected with adware after using it...

Console display does not limit the resolution when remoting into the server.

Do you really need higher resolution on the console when there are other options?

We manage the server via third party remoting software like Kaseya and ScreenConnect which connect to the console session. This makes things difficult. But I did have this suggestion for the client, if they agree good, else they will have to go back to 2012 R2. Thank You for your help.
