  1. I installed Windows 10 a few days ago, on an older PC that has an on-board Nvidia 6100 processor and pretty well everything went okay but the system crashed a couple of times since. I suspected that the generic graphics driver that Windows installed during installation was causing the issue, as it seemed to happen when i was asking the display to scroll on an Ebay page or do a bit of work. I tried to update the driver in device manager but it just said i already had the most up to date driver. I have now downloaded this driver and it installed okay and is now showing as the installed driver in the device manager. It didn’t require a reboot and I am now hoping that i will not suffer any more crashes in the meantime until I receive a new PCI-e graphics card that does support Win 10.

  2. It just worked out awesome ! Thank you so much. I was upgraded my old celeron d pc to WIN10 from WIN 7.
    I had installed a geforce 7100GS to my pc. But when i was upgraded my pc to Win10 everthing worked well but the graphics card can not support fully it was just started to work as Windows Generic Adaptor also could not shoul it’s name Nvidia GeForce 7100GS. I was so irritated searching websites for this issue and just came here. Your idea worked! Thank you again.
