Tried to make the jump to 10 but my Nvidia GeForce7100/NVIDIA enForce 630i is not compatable.
Am I doomed or can this be cured?

 

According to Nvidia website I have the correct driver

Hi redjim :)

Where do you see that your graphic card isn't compatible?

Hi redjim :)

When I clicked on the Microsoft app in the bottom right of my screen it said it wasn't compatable.

Do you have two cards Nvidia GeForce7100 and NVIDIA enForce 630i? Are they in SLI right now?

To be totally honest I have no idea, I always assumed it was all one. And I don't know what SLI is.

If you go in the Device Manager, under Display Adapters, which cards appears there?

According to the NVIDIA drivers webpage, your Nvidia GeForce7100 doesn't have Windows 10 ready drivers, this could be the reason.

Hi, just an FYI the nForce 630i is an old motherboard chipset for Intel LGA775 Core 2/Pentium/Celeron CPU's.  It includes an integrated Geforce 7100 for the display element.  Specs here.  

 

It's a PCIe chipset so the motherboard should have a PCIe x16 slot and it should therefore be possible to add a graphics card, if this is a sticking point for preventing the upgrade.  Low end cards which will work with Windows 10 can be had for $30-40.  The requirement is just for a Direct X 9 compatible GPU with WDDM driver.  Presumably the 7100 fails this because no compatible driver is available (it is listed as being Direct X 9.0c compatible).

Yeah that's what I realized after jonuk, thanks. Hardware isn't my strong point, I just know enough to not have to rely on others everyday when I have questions on it :P Also, it seems like drivers from previous version of Windows won't work for NVIDIA graphic card. At first I tried to install drivers for Windows 8.1 for my GTX 670 and it said that the system wasn't supported. So they really need driver support for Windows 10, at least, the graphic card does.

It looks like Nvidia do not have (and I suspect are not going to release) Windows 10 drivers for anything older than the Geforce 8xxx series.  http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

I have a simlar problem. My Video card is a NVIDIA GeForce 6600. My computer is actually 10 years old. but works perfect. But I wonder, if I buy another Windows 10 compatible card will my computer accept it. and if it does, will Microsoft then find other problems? Has anyone solved the video card problem and then been able to install Windows 10 without running into other problems?

Does this mean I should change the graphic card ? and if so to what?
