Windows 7: GTX & Wibdows 10 won't play nice?

GTX & Wibdows 10 won't play nice?

<<< Solved >>>
Had to manually install the win 10 driver package. Everything running smoothly now.

Just got my Win 10 upgrade. I Have to admit it went smoother than I expected. There are a few glitches but nothing terrible. Except, My display is locked into 1 resolution. I need to adjust so these old, tired eyes can see. I am thinking about re-installing the Nvidia drivers but (based on experience) thought I'd ask first.
Comments or flames welcome,.

Updating your GPU drivers should solve the problem, if you're having trouble installing them just give us a shout. You could also consider asking on our sister site TenForums.

Thanks for the reply. I'm terrified of updating Nvidia drivers. a couple of times I killed my system just up- dating drivers. Oh, I installed their "experience" program. It's telling me that drivers are yup to date. Should I just download the driver and re-install it?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Sometimes it just needs a restart. I don't know why but Windows 10 wants a restart after updating GPU drivers on my system. Also with my setup, GTX970+GTX480 only 347.88 drivers work, newer drivers fail to initialize the GTX480 and 3D Vision USB controller turn off after a couple of minutes.

Getting Office to play nice
OK, so this is seriously stumping me. I like Microsoft Office 2000... in my opinion it's the best one, and all the newer ones just add more bloat and less useful features. But I know professors at the university require the students to use Office 2007... probably beause they're being paid off...
