Windows 10: Can't detect the right driver for my graphic card

    Can't detect the right driver for my graphic card


    Windows 10 can't detect my graphic card, and the only details I remember about it is that it's a NVIDIA GeForce card between the years 2005-2007.
    I already tried NVIDIA Auto-detection tool (GeForce Experience) and it couldn't detect it, tried 'dxdiag', and Display Adapters under Device Manager, couldn't detect it too.
    Help will be greatly appreciated

    Thanks

    There is a small program called Speccy which gives you system information, and should tell you what Graphics card you are using:
    Speccy - System Information - Free Download
    or if you right click on the start menu and pick device manager, then click on display adapter, it might tell you there.

    Thanks for replying, I forgot to mention that I already used those methods, sorry.
    On Speccy it shows the following:' 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor on Microsoft Basic Display Adapter'

    Have you got a video card build into your motherboard as well as the Geforce card?
    Perhaps you need to select it in the BIOS.
    My motherboard has a build in video card, and I also have a Nvidea Geforce card in one of the slots.

    The NVIDIA card I'm talking about is the built in one

    So it appears that my card is: GeForce 7025 / NVIDIA nForce 630a
    I looked it up NVIDIA site and it seems there is no version for this driver for windows 10, what do I do in that case?

    Thanks

    What about your motherboards web site?
    They might have the latest drivers.
    There's also some information here:
    Windows 10 not supporting GeForce 7025 NVIDIA nForce 630a video - Microsoft Community

    In your case you need to download and install nVidia chipset drivers from www.nvidia.com or www.nvidia.co.uk Go to downloads, All nVidia drivers, Product type: Legacy, Product series: nVidia nForce 6 series, Product: nForce 630a / GeForce 7025, Operating system: Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit (no 8 or 10 drivers, but they should work). Installing the chipset drivers it will also install graphics, audio, network and SATA, so you shouldn't need anything else.

    Thanks man, I just looked at this link 30 minutes ago. Might open another thread if something will go wrong in the future. For now it seems to work just fine.
    Thanks a lot for your help!

    You are welcome! Always remember that Windows is backwards compatible with earlier versions. So if no Windows 10 driver is available, use 8 or 7 or Vista. In 32-bit version even some XP drivers work (not all).
