    Win10 compatibility

    Simply: Had a MoBo with NVidia Gforce6150s incompatible Monitor driver when Win10 first released. Get Win10 reported the driver incompatible.

    Replaced Mobo with Intel Monitor driver 110315, re-activated Win7.

    However,Get Win10 cannot be changed to reflect current driver.

    To make this short - have downloaded "MediaCreationTool" which fails because Nvidia driver is still shown as incompatible.

    Have removed Nvdia software and see in the registry many references to Nvidia. So I'm wondering which of the Nvidia references removed from the registry will convince Win7 that Nvdia isn't there?

    Otherwise without changing the registry information, can't find a way for Ms diaganostic tool to see the intel Monitor driver on the new Mobo.

    Thank you.

    Intel CPU G640, 4gb ram, 1TB HDD in system on Gigabyte Mobo.

    I think I would have created a restore point, removed all registry references to Nvidia, reinstalled the card and then run the compatibility check again - but like you, figured there had to be a better way and asked Google.

    That produced this article and Posts 5 & 7 may have the answers for you.

    Sudo, thank you for the response.

    However, strange, registry will not permit editing of Nvidia postings. The Nvdia is under MSI listing, which is actually not used as the current Mobo is Gigabyte with Intel CPU and drivers.

    Not to keen on reinstalling Win7 just to get Win10.

    Other input, will appreciated.

    You can't do anything with files when Windows is using them so you will have to boot up into Safe Mode, uninstall the existing card then remove the references to Nvidia in the registry if none of the steps in the article I'd linked will work for you - but don't forget to create a restore point first before making any changes to the registry.

    As the monitor driver interface is integral to this system- what card are you referring to?

    If I see this correctly, all I'll do is remove the Registry references to Nvidia, even though at this point there is no MSI mobo- which is what nvidia is listed under.

    Kudos to Sudo - thank you again!

    Attempted various methods to alter the registry listing of MSI/Nvidia drivers causing the GForce Monitor incompatibility no change resulted.

    Just Contacted Microsoft Help desk and was advised the only to change this(even though Gigabyte.Intel Mobo/drivers now in system) must reinstall Win7 to remove the incompatibility.

    I'll look forward to that on a cold rainy day in 2016.

    You might try this tool on Bleeping Computer...might work in Windows 10.

    Hadn't read your post properly, was thinking you were talking about a graphics card and not a Monitor driver, but trust MS to make things difficult
