    nvidia said it had an updated driver, so I clicked run, but when I go to view in folder from edge, folder is empty? So where does it go?

    Also name of file did not mention windows 10?
    But it is installing now anyway.

  2. Downloaded files disappear


    When you download a file through any browser, there's an option somewhere to 'Open Containing Folder.'

    In Windows, to find a file you have downloaded...

    1. Open your personal folder by clicking the Start button and then clicking your user name at the top of the Start menu's right pane.
    2. Double-click one of the following folders:
      • Downloads
      • Documents
      • Pictures
      • Videos
      • Music


    If you do not see the file you are looking for, but know its file name, you can search for it by following these steps:
    To search for a file you have downloaded...

    1. Click the Start button
    2. Type all or part of the file name into the Search box.
      The file you are looking for will appear in the list of results.

    Files all downloaded but last part of setup failed


    Hi. I was invited to download/install Windows 10 and I followed all the steps to download the files. Then I clicked to install it and it seemed to be doing it. Windows closed down and the computer restarted, but when it opened again it was still Windows 7 and there was a box up relating to Windows upgrades that that said the 'latest upgrade' had failed, and there was a button to click to download Windows 10 if I wanted to (again?!). I don't know where all the files are that were downloaded and what I should do. I saw a suggestion somewhere that firewall/antivirus software can be a problem. I have Bitdefender, that doesn't allow you to disable it.. I suppose I could remove it completely before trying again? But otherwise what should I do? I don't want to download a lot of duplicate files again.

    Thanks for any suggestions.
     
  4. curious, where is the downloaded nvidia setup file?

    Trying to download Free windows 10 and my computer ?s NVIDIA ?

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    I understand your concern regarding the issue that you are facing.




    • What is the model number of NVIDIA Graphic card?


    Method 1:
    This issue might be occurring due to the incompatibility of the
    Nvidia graphics card driver
    with the new OS. So I Suggest to uninstall the graphics card driver and install the latest driver from the manufacturer website and check and then try to upgrade.



    Step 1: uninstall the display drivers.

    a. Press Windows + X, Click
    Device
    Manager.

    b. Expand Display Adapters.

    c. Check if the name of the graphic card is the list.

    d. Right click on the Display Adapter’s name and click
    uninstall.

    e. Once you uninstall the drivers it will prompt to restart the computer, do not restart the computer.

    f. It will take default drivers in the computer.


    Step 2: Reinstall the drivers.

    Please download the drivers from the computer Manufacturer’s website and reinstall the drivers.
