    Load the GeForce Driver
    Drivers | GeForce

    GeForce/GeForce 200Series/GeForce210

    The good news is they have a Windows 10 driver
    Download the win7 driver and install that and also download the win10 driver so you can install that after your 10 upgrade is complete.

    So, I found an older driver 3/2011 at ASUS and it installed. Should I try another forced 10 download?
    Don't know what you mean by "forced 10 download".

    You may be able to do the upgrade by using one of the methods from the Media Creation Tool:

    Windows 10

    You'll probably get the Microsoft Basic display drivers. nVidia (Visual Computing Leadership from NVIDIA) offers the 341.74 drivers for your oldish graphics card under Windows 10.

    Well, I've come full circle. I've tried every driver I could find and none but the 3/2011 worked. Maybe this card simply isn't compatible with 10 but, you'd think the 10 icon would stop displaying the old graphics display. Mind boggling.

    With the Windows 7 drivers extracted, have you tried right clicking in Device Manager, Update Driver Software, Browse my computer, and then let me pick from a list, browse to what looks like the correct .inf file in the extracted drivers? That's how I got my old Radeon 4500 to work.

    I think I've tried everything except uninstalling the update that created the 10 icon. I don't know of any other way to get 10 to recognize my new graphics card. Thoughts anyone?

    Just a suggestion. May not work, but maybe worth a try.

    • Remove the 210 card and enable the onboard graphics in bios (and check that any other applicable changes are also made as required).
    • Make sure that everything is working in Win7 then use your Win10 installation disk to perform the upgrade within Win7.
    • Check that Win10 has successfully activated.
    • Then download the Win10 driver for the 210 from NVidia but do not install.
    • Ensure the NVidia driver is the correct version for your system (x86 or x64).
    • Also download the chipset drivers from either Asus or AMD without installing. (Maybe AMD has different driver version from Asus?)
    • Power down, put the 210 back inside your rig and turn off you router.
    • Change your bios settings as appropriate.
    • Reboot without internet. Do not turn your router.
    • Install all the drivers you downloaded
    • Reboot and see if she works

    Have you tried uninstalling all the Nvidia from Device manager?

    This morning I clicked the 10 icon and got this. Never got this screen before. Maybe it fixed itself.
