Window 10 hardware upgrade problem

  Terry Brown 11:25 06 Dec 2015

I run the Windows 10 compatibility test and it told me my graphics card was not suitable, so I bought a new card which is suitable.

When I re-run the test, it still showed the old card as being in the system, so cannot load windows 10. I assume there is a log file somewhere, which I need to delete to rerun the test.

Any idea's what is is called or another solution please.

Thank you

Check in device manager to see if your old card is still there and if so uninstall the drivers.

Unfortunately the tool is not clever enough to detect the new card so will continue to show as incompatible. Easiest way round this is to d/l the media creation tool and run that. It will d/l the lastest version and do the update

hi Bris My old drivers have been uninstalled only the new ATI drivers are showing, although there are still some Nvidia files on the computer, but I cannot uninstall them as it says they are in use?

Try loading windows in safe mode and you should then be able to delete all the files
