    GTA V runs slower after windows 10 upgrade

    before I upgraded I had windows 8.1, and the GTA ran well.
    I upgraded to windows 10 yesterday and when I started to play it was slow. too slow.
    I don't have a very good computer, but it didn't bother the game to run well before, and now, when I start running the game it alerts me that my pc doesn't fit the system requirements. It never alerted that before.
    I have no idea what the reason is. please, help me

    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3550 CPU @ 3.30GHz
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 520
    RAM: 8 GB
    64 bit system

    technically, my system can't run GTA V, I don't know how it did it, but I don't argue with that lol.
    Oh, I forgot to mention: Now when I start running the GTA it alerts that my pc doesn't fit the system requirements.

    Uninstall and reinstall your graphics card driver. Something may have gone wonky during the upgrade.

    I'm not sure that Nvidia has put out Windows 10 drivers for the 500 series cards. You may be stuck using the 8.1 drivers for now. Either way, though, I'd still reinstall your GPU driver.

    GTA V actually ran quite a bit faster for me after going from 8.1 to 10.

    I can't believe I solved it! I just had to update the graphic card. I did it before you answered it, when I searched for my graphic card's name, and only now I checked the game lol

    thank you so much, ComedyCarnage and blackroseMD1!
