Windows 7: Windows 7 and Office 2010 End of Support

Well, I'm about to evaluate Win10 vs Ubuntu. I have a low end netbook running Win7 that I'm going to upgrade to Ubuntu. And then all of the software I was using on that, I'll install on a 15" Thinkpad I just bought for $80. This thinkpad came with an i5 processor that would've cost me double that to get for my main PC, and it came with a 64-bit Win10 Pro


So I'll be test driving Win10 after all. Securing that is the first challenge. Just beginning to poke around in it and I'm finding all sorts of stuff that I had to deal with in Win7 years ago. I'm not surprised, haven't heard much about Win10 being all that much better than Win7. Guess I might be heading over to the ten forum just to find out what all needs to get fixed


The netbook is my security camera setup rig. It has an ethernet port and a handful of software that I've found useful to deal with ip cameras and routers. So part of what I'll be doing is seeing if Win10 can install and run properly the software I already know how to use. And really, if there's a single Win7 application that Win10 can't run because backwards compatibility wasn't seen as profitable...

I was SO close to getting the free Win 10 install---when the Setup Wizard advised me that my NVIDA GeForce 6150 LE was not compatible; display problems would happen. So I canceled the download.

Any suggestions on how I can correct this issue? Or am I SOL?

I doubt this is going to work. I have a very similar graphics, 6150 SE, and Windows 7 has no problem with it. But even Linux systems gave me trouble. I could only get the lightest of them, and 32 bit, to make them work. That's because they are current systems, like Windows 10. Hardware that old needs older Windows systems, or light Linux systems. I am using Zorin lite and LXLE on mine. They work well, with only an occasional display weird-out, where I have to shut down. I could put in a new graphics card, but the machine is 10 years old. At some point you have to think about not sinking any more money into it. Sometimes you need to compromise, if you still want to use the machine. Why not put Linux on it, and use a newer machine for Windows 10? If you have Windows 7 on the machine, you could dual-boot with Linux. That way you keep Windows 7 (yay) and still have a safe Linux system to go online with. you can even install Windows 7 within Linux as a virtual system, where it will be totally safe to go online with it. Many options these days.

I never had that problem, I always kept a library of nVidia drivers on CD/DVD over the years or gotten them from NVidia's own archive or filehippo or its clones or SourceForge. Then shoe-horned to work, as most drivers are upgraded for game performance or GUI, the basic guts are the same just for running on monitors. On a fresh install, you can't hurt anything by performing a do-over. Doesn't W10 provide you with a dialogue to install a driver from external media?

Both drivers will work with your card according to the Nvidia website (Supported Products)...
Yeah, the suggestion to use 309.08 is the best way to go, you just want to get all the video chips "turned on".
As an experiment, start with the suggested driver, then go backwards, for as the thread reads that is the last driver that will work with such old hardware.

Interesting that the top five places in that table (all in excess of 2000) belong to Linux (3 entries), Android and Mac Os X. I'm assuming that 'discovered' also means 'fixed', else it's saying Linux is by far and away the least secure (that can't be right, surely?).
