    Have windows 7, nivida geforce 7025/nforce 630a has no driver update. Can't upgrade to windows 10because of this. Need help for purchasing new graphics card. I'm not a gamer. maybe should just leave everything as is. I have an AMD Athlon II X2 245 processor 2.9 GHz,3GB, 32 bit. What graphics card should I buy if I choose to do so? :X3:

    That is the motherboard chipset and onboard video. In order to help you, you need to post your exact motherboard. If this is a big box system ie dell, hp, etc, post the exact brand and model#
    That motherboard chipset is now 8+ yrs old and as such it most likely is not going to be supported on win10. Hardware from one era often does not work well with an operating system from a different era.

    Besides what you were asked to do in post #2, also do the following in that computer.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Download and save the TSG System Information Utility (SysInfo.exe) to the desktop.

    After it's been downloaded and saved, double-click it to run it.

    Information about your computer will appear.

    Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE text here.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Go into the Device Manager, then expand these headings:

    Network Adapters

    Sound Video And Game Controllers


    Advise the exact description of the devices listed there.
