When you try to use the Windows Update Assistant to upgrade to Windows 10, you get the message “These devices are not fully compatible with Windows 10.” with your video card. You may be getting this error message because the video card manufacturer has not released a driver for Windows 10. Just follow the tips listed here to install Windows 10.
Uninstall the current display drivers and try again.
Follow the instructions below:
- Press Win + R (the Windows key and the R key) at the same time. A Run dialog box will appear.
- Type devmgmt.msc in the launch box and click OK.
- Expand the Graphics Cards category and click Delete on the context menu.

Check for incompatible drivers
- Open the Device Manager from the WinX menu. Expand the list of your video cards.
- Right-click the list of NVIDIA graphics cards and select Enable. Now right click again and select Update Driver Software…
- A new window will open. Click on “Automatically check for updated drivers” to do so.
If Windows now recognizes your video card and the latest driver version, so much the better! If not, go to the next step.
- Right-click again and select Update Driver Software …
- Then click “Find drivers on my computer”. Then click “Allow Selection” from the list of device drivers on my computer.
- Finally, select the compatible driver for your computer called NVIDIA Graphics Card and continue.
- Wait for the entire process to complete and restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
Install the latest graphics driver in compatibility mode
If the drivers downloaded above do not install on your computer, you will need to install them in compatibility mode. This tip only installs the operating system configuration for the corresponding configuration as an older version of Windows.
If the installation was done for an older version of Windows 10, it can be installed in this newer version of Windows.
All you need to do is right-click the installer file and select Compatibility Troubleshooter. This will launch the software compatibility troubleshooter.
Just follow the troubleshooting instructions on the screen and test the programs in a combination of different compatibility modes.
