    I have Windows 10 in a Acer Aspire 5610Z. This notebook also has Geforce Go 7300.
    I was trying latest driver from Nvidia site (march 2009). It seems ok, but I at every shutting down i've had blue screen.

    Today I found this topic: Win 10 doesnt install due my Nvidia GeForce Go 7300 - can it be sorted? | Windows 10 Forums
    Someone posted there 307.68 drivers (december 2012), which are working in 100% with 7300 Go.

    Is your machine working on a 32 bit architecture or a 64 bit architecture? Do you have a link to this particular December 2012 driver?

    I found this listing by Nvidia, for Win 10 compatibility,
    Which NVIDIA GPUs are supported in Windows 10?

    I have older Dells using GeForce 6150Le & GeForce7300 Le.
    As an experiment, I ordered a low end ASUS GeForce 210 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 , ~ $32, and will see how that goes in passing the Win 10 Inspection.
    Don't need any high end graphics, so cheap is the way.

    Are your Dells Inspiron 6400 machines? My problem is using that machine with a GeForce Go 7300 card and the lack of any driver for Windows 10. I accept that I do not nor will I need games performance so the 7300 has always been more than adequate for my needs.

    They would be an:
    Inspiron 518 w/ 6150LE
    Inspiron 530 w/ 7300LE
    have a couple Inspiron 570's which upgraded to Win10 with no problem.

    I can't really comment as I don't know the spec of these machines. Suffice to say my problem appears to be inextricably linked to my graphics card as that is the element which fails the Windows 10 compatibility test. Other machines may pass or fail the test on other grounds so any comparison may not be valid.

    Thanks for your interest.

    Hi, I have installed succesfully Windows 10, my pc has the nvidia go 7300. I had Windows 8.1 and the driver was installed with Windows Update. So, with Windows 10, Windows update doesn't find the driver. Luckly I have Windows.old and the folder Nvidia Corporation so I have installed the driver from this folder... However an user has uploded the driver MEGA

    I wonder if that driver could be used on a Win 7 machine; and would that unit now be eligible for a Win 10 upgrade ?

    So, I yanked out the GeForce 7300 le, told the motherboard to use its Intel G33/G31 graphics. Uninstalled all the Nvidia software, and put in my Win10 32 bit iso dvd, and did the upgrade.
    Couldn't figure out how to get the Windows 10 upgrade advisor to run again, so the dvd was the next choice.
