    Determine NVIDIA Graphics Display Driver Version Installed in Windows

    this Nvidia graphics driver is not compatible with this version of windows

    Hello there. Recently, I updated my Windows 10 Pro "1803" to "1809". My graphics drivers version were "391.35" and I needed to update it to the newest version, which is "419.17". At first it gave the "This Nvidia graphics
    driver is not compatible with this version of windows" therefore I updated my windows version as I stated above. After updating and doing a full format. I tried again with the hopes of installing my newest driver. Yet now it gave 2 error messages: 1-"This
    Nvidia graphics driver is not compatible with this version of windows" 2-"This graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware". I tried everything on forums, updating old drivers manually etc. None of them did work. If you could help me solve
    this problem, I will be real happy. Thanks in advance.

  5. Windows 10 Upgrade Not Recognizing new Graphics Card

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Community. I understand the inconvenience you are facing. I will certainly help you with this.

    I appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down the issue and to provide you better assistance.

    • Did you removed the NVidia graphics card before installing Radeon graphics card?

      Device Manager
      .

  6. this Nvidia graphics driver is not compatible with this version of windows

    Hi disevi

    First, try restarting your graphics driver:

    Press Windows key + Ctrl + Shift + B

    If that does not work...

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Device Manager

    Expand Display adapters

    Right click the current display adapter

    Click Properties

    Click Driver tab

    Click Rollback driver if the option is available

    If not

    Right click the current display adapter

    Click Uninstall

    Check the box that says, "Delete the driver software for this device.”

    Exit Device Manager

    Restart

    Go to Start -> Settings -> Update & security, then Check for updates and install any available updates.

    You might need to update the display driver from the manufacturer of your computers website.

    If you have an nVidia, AMD ATI video card or Intel HD graphics installed, you can download the latest drivers from their website.

    First, determine what type of graphics you have installed.

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Device Manager

    Expand Display adapters

    Once you have determined the graphics driver, go the vendors website and search for the driver in the download section:

    nVidia - Download Drivers | NVIDIA

    Some of these sites offer autodetect options.

    As future Windows 10 feature updates are released it will introduce incompatibility with older devices and PC's. Certain components will not support these changes as observed by some users not seeing transparency anymore or brightness functions missing. Recommendations
    include, rollback, block the upgrade or consider upgrading components in your system such as graphics, storage, BIOS, motherboard or purchase a new Windows 10 PC.

    There seems to be some early adopter issues at this time with Windows 10 1809 , if you can, I recommend you downgrade to your previous version until the Spring Creators Update matures with future cumulative updates.

    Open Start > Settings > Update & security > Recovery > under Go back to my previous version of Windows 10, click Get started.

    or

    Press Control + Alt + Delete

    Click Sign out

    At the Sign In screen, hold down the shift key on your keyboard while clicking the Power button on the screen

    Continue to hold down the shift key while clicking Restart

    Continue to hold down the shift key until the Advanced Recovery Options menu appears

    Click Troubleshoot

    Click Advanced options

    Click Go back to the previous version of Windows

    Windows Update might attempt to upgrade to Windows 10 1809 again. See instructions how to block it:
