How do I upgrade an HP Compaq to Windows 10 if it has an NVIDIA G6150SE nf430 graphics card?

If you have a problem upgrading to Windows 10 with an NVIDIA G6150SE NF430 graphics card on an HP Compaq running Windows 7, then here is the solution.

Windows tells you the card is incompatible with Windows 10 because NVIDIA has not updated the driver.

First, Go Here and Upgrade to 10: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
You need to upgrade it from the Web vs the Windows 10 Upgrade Icon. The web version will upgrade to Windows 10 and install a generic Microsoft Driver. During the installation use the Media Creation Tool and select Upgrade this PC now. When it warns that the video chip is incompatible you just click 'Confirm' and the installation continues. The generic Windows basic video driver works fine and I was able to change the resolution to 1280x1024 which is what I need and it looks fine. Don't worry that it takes a long time to complete. That is because it checks for updates.

Second, Download and install the latest 8.1 driver here: http://www.geforce.com/drivers/results/56378
This worked with no problems. Please note some things that require later DirectX may not work correctly, but many tasks will run fine.

This is the driver for your card:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvista_x86_96.85_2.html
It seems to be compatable up to Windows Vista so, it may, or, may not be compatable with Windows 7. If you are trying to get a driver for Windows Vista or earlier, this should work for you. Make sure you uninstall any prior driver before downloading this. If you have Windows 7 or are thinking about getting it, you can run the upgrade advisor here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor
to see if your system and card are compatable with Windows 7.

nvidia 8800 gts graphics card willnot work properly since upgrading tiwindows 7


hi makemtakem

please check as you might be using the WDM or the windows drivers included in the Windows 7 installation. You may want to try to upgrade to the latest drivers found on the nvidia website itself. www.nvidia.com some features for the card specially gaming features are not fully functional with just the WDM drivers since this is already outdated.

hope this helps, please let me know

Does Nvidia Quadro FX3400 support 4gb of RAM? My


If there would be no increase in performance, no need to do upgrade. try to check the performance of your computer using BENCHMARK softwares.
