Windows 7: Windows 10 GPU compatibility issue

Windows 10 GPU compatibility issue

Hello, I upgraded my GPU to a GeForce GT 710 about a month ago. Soon after I realized that the rest of my computer needed to be upgraded. Got a new MB, MEM, and CPU to compensate, details listed on profile. Well after all of that, I found out about the offer for a free upgrade to Windows 10, did a system check and it found that my GPU is not up to par for them. So I went to the store and they were puzzled that the current GPU was not compatible, told me to uninstall my drivers and reinstall using ones downloaded from the internet. Check, still no success. So I bought a GT 730, which has Windows 10 all over it and thought no issue. Installed it, current drivers, device manager lists the GT 730 and not the 710. The compatibility manager for the free upgrade is still saying I have a GT 710 installed.

I have literally ran out of ideas other than putting back in the old GPU, uninstall it, put back in the new one and install it all over again.

Any ideas or suggestions? Please let me know.

Thanks

Did you download the drivers from nvidia ?

Drivers | GeForce

What does GeForce Experience say you have ?

I would not worry what the compatibility manager thinks you have, just upgrade to 10 if you want to.

The Device Manager in 10 will most certainly show you have a 730.

Not exactly sure what you`re worried about, My Vista Gateway PC runs 10 with a 660 no problem.
