    Device Manager alert

    I installed Win10 Pro x64 from scratch on my desktop computer and that is the only OS I have on that computer.
    The Device Manager shows an alert - please check the attachment.
    I have Nvidia Geforce 9400 and have updated the drivers.
    How can I get rid of that alert ?

    You are missing the driver for that hardware. I googled the hardware IDs,


    and it shows that this would be the
    NVIDIA nForce System Management Controller Driver for Gigabyte Technology,
    which you need. So you still need to install the driver for that chipset...

    Thanks - but I can't find the driver for Win10 neither on Gigabyte or Nvidia support sites.
    There are lots of 'driver-download-sites' with this dirver but can they be trusted ?

    If they are not official, they cannot be trusted. There especially are many doubtful pages, which try installing crapware or which even provide drivers full of viruses. Even known pages like SourceForge manipulate their users' uploads - I really do not trust such pages.

    I have now tried finding a driver for your
    NVIDIA nForce System Management Controller Driver for Gigabyte Technology
    on the NVIDIA website. However, when you select "Legacy", it gives you a number of different nForce series and a number of different boards for each. I have no idea, which one is the right one in your case.

    Maybe you can use the tool CPU-Z
    CPU-Z | Softwares | CPUID
    to get more information about the exact name of the components inside your PC. Especially the exact name of the motherboard/mainboard is relevant.

    When I selected "Legacy" at Nvidia's support site and specified GeForce 9400 it just gave me the driver that I already have. Feel that I am back at square one again ...

    Note that the GeForce 9400 is a graphics card. What you are missing however, is a driver for a part of your mainboard (which is not called GeForce, but nForce). Both are made by NVIDIA, but they are different. Just like a Mercedes SL 500 and a Mercedes S Class: Both are produced by the same manufacturer, but they are different.

    What you need to know is the exact name of the motherboard. CPU-Z

    can tell you the name of the exact model.

    About the best you're going to find is the last Windows 7 driver as Nvidia dropped support for their chipsets a few years ago,

    Just make sure to do a custom install so you don't get the GPU and Physx drivers.

    @Joergi, the Geforce 9400 (as well as the 8100/8200/8300) is a Nforce chipset, just that they are the one's with integrated graphics.

    I'm not so sure about that. When I checked that yesterday, it came up with integrated graphics (like GeForce 9400M for laptops), but also with real graphics cards of the 9400 series. Since zkab obviously does not use a laptop, but a desktop PC, I think what he might have is a real card...
