    7 Home > 10 Upgrade Failed - Graphics Card Incompatible


    Got a message that my graphics card was not compatible with 10 so I installed an ASUS 210 Silent, forced a 10 download again and still get the same message with the old card. 10 upgrade doesn't check for the new card, just reports the old card is not compatible. How do I get it to check hardware again?

    Did you install the drivers for the new graphics card?

    Yes, before I forced the download.

    Try turning off the on-board graphics in the BIOS and make sure that your driver has properly loaded for your new video card.

    The only options for changing onboard devices are the ports: serial and parallel.

    Try disabling it in Device Manger, right click and Disable.

    Change the order of the video device to match the new card location as the first choice (PCI Express presumably?)
    See your manual page 2-9 "South Bridge Configuration"

    OK, I looked in device manager and discovered the driver encountered and error and did not install. Had it try again and it failed again (error code 28). So I guess I'm off to the ASUS/NVIDIA website to attempt to figure this out.

    So, I found an older driver 3/2011 at ASUS and it installed. Should I try another forced 10 download? It seems to me that there must be a file associated with 10 upgrade that's not getting updated with the new video card info. Make sense to anyone?
