Having run windows 8 upgrade assistant I am informed I require graphic card Microsoft directx 9 graphics device with wddm driver. My medion laptop now running wind 7 was purchased in Dec 2008 so now 4.5 yrs old. The graphics card in my medion computer is Nvidia Geforce 9100 MG (DISPLAY ADAPTOR) Generic pnp monitor (18.5 vis) Can any one tell me if my graphic card is capable of working with wind 8. If not what must I do to be able to receive wind 8. Desperate to upgrade but not sure if I should with my present graphics card. Gratefully appreciative of any help.

                                        Thank you  joni 1924

I'm not sure that I would be "desparate to upgrade" a functioning W7 laptop.
