    windows 10

    Nvidia and Windows 10 compatibility


    I have recently upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10, I have noticed that youtube videos
    and internet videos will just not play, and some pages open very slow and I have to click
    the refresh button go back and try again or quit.
    I tried searching the net for a fix and help with updates etc but have not been able to
    correct it.
    Something came to mind to contact Nvidia and they told me that my installed graphics card
    is not compatible with windows 10 so no drivers or fixes.
    My graphics card is: NVIDIA NFORCE SERIAL ATA CONTROLLER (2X) and the motherboard is:
    AS ROCK N68-S, and the PC is 32 BIT 64 BIT ready.
    I was thinking of trying to replace the card myself but do not have a clue as to which one to
    to purchase and compatibility, Nvidia sent me list compatible with windows 10 but there
    are loads.
    So can anyone tell me what replacement would be suitable with the one I have listed above.
    I have just realised form this part of their reply:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I checked and this motherboard has a NVIDIA® GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a processor ,
    Windows 10 being a brand new Operating system has new minimum hardware requirements in
    order to support all the features and specifications of the new OS, so some older
    generation graphics cards are not able to be supported with Windows 10. Unfortunately the
    nForce 630a with a GeForce 7025 (This is an onboard graphics controller embedded on an
    nForce motherboard) is not supported on Windows 10. The nForce motherboards that
    support Windows 10 are listed below for your reference. NVIDIA nForce 730a Desktop
    NVIDIA nForce 750a SLI Desktop NVIDIA nForce 760i SLI Desktop NVIDIA nForce 980a/780a
    SLI Desktop
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I note when they asked for a screen shot of device manager/display adaptors nothing was
    showing for nvidia, so it appears that the upgrade wiped anything to do with nvidia off
    the system.

    Are they telling me that the PC needs a new motherboard, and a new graphics card will not
    resolve the problem.
    Any help and comments will be gratefully received, many thanks.
    Peter.

    Windows 10 Pro x64 FCU - XP/Vista/Win7/Win8.1 in VM for testing

    The NVIDIA NFORCE SERIAL ATA CONTROLLER (2X) is some form of Hard Drive controller not a Graphics card

    A quick look states that the motherboard has a 16x PCI 2 slot so should take a number of available graphics cards As this motherboard is fairly old I would not suggest the latest cards but something in a single slot package that will fit into the space available in your case

    This is a similar thread to your issue which may help ...

    Hi there
    I needed a cheapish 1/2 height card that would fit into a "Cube" complete with decent sound (HDMI) as my mobo didn't have any sound capability.

    This card worked fine on Windows 10 (X-64 Pro) including 3D as well - I tested on Windows first.

    I'm running on Linux now with this card where it also works fine with the Nvidia drivers.

    Card is GT610 -- very happy with it - drivers (both W10 and Linux just fine).

    nVidia is telling you that they don't support that chipset for Windows 10.

    It's a pretty commonly used chipset, so if you search the Web, you'll find a number of people have tried work-arounds to get its drivers to install under 10. I haven't done it myself, so I can't recommend a specific recipe.

    A quick check at my favorite online seller newegg.com suggests that a card based on the nVidia GT 610 or the AMD Radeon 5450 would be the cheapest. These aren't high-powered devices, but if you have been living with onboard graphics for many years, you may find them a pleasant surprise in terms of performance.

    To get rid of nVidia, he'd have to lose the motherboard.

    Probably a good idea to stop messing with a chipset this old, if the OP is interested in Win 10. (It would have made sense to stay with Windows 7 on it.)

    Of course he could always run W10 as a VM on the old system --keep W7 as the Host.
