I just upgraded to Windows 10 and it's saying I need to update my graphics card.

Question

  • 0

Being the 1st to use a new OS release is way over-rated. It puts you in unfamiliar territory with little or no support.

I've been a part of the Windows 10 Insider Program and I DON'T recommend anyone upgrade to it that uses high end Graphics Cards or has a Laptop with a High-end Graphics Subsystem in it at this time. Why?

1) Not all Video System manufacturers have released final Drivers for Windows 10 - This is a use at your own risk early availability program for "experienced" PC and Laptop users. The OEM version of Windows 10 isn't packaged at a frozen release either. It will be available for purchase as an OEM product on August 31st. Bet me a few automatic downloaded patches will be available by that time based on the feedback of the previous months early adopter experience.

2) Windows 10 Automatic Updates are not optional. This means you will be stuck with a several release behind driver from nVidia as an example. If you update to a more current release it has been reported that your driver install will be rolled back automatically.

I see you are a DJ as well. I've tested SAM 2015.01 using a MySQL Database with 250,000 songs cataloged under Windows 10 Professional but I'm not ready to trust that platform as this time as my main SL machine. My particular nVidia Graphics Card seems to work well but I'll hold out a bit longer before jumping this Shark.

 

To your question, you are probably using the generic "approved" video card driver for your particular laptop. This will support all basic home and business class of graphics needs.

BTW - Please be more precise in you statement of your PC issue, specifically:

1) What is saying that your "need to update my graphics card" [ ] The Seconf Life Program? [ ] The Windows 10 OS? [ ] Other?

2) Please state your laptop make and model so we might be able to assist you further.

3) What SL Viewer are you using? What Release?

Otherwise, roll it back to the previous OS until you hear that your laptop is fully supported.

Get off of Singularity and use either the SL Viewer or the Firestorm Viewer. These have way more current DLL [Dynamic Link Libraries] and other OS support libraries assembled into the final package. Also, you need to be posting to the Singularity Support group. http://www.singularityviewer.org/kb

 

Singularity has not been upgraded since February of 2015. One of their support staff may have experience with that release.

If you are using a Nvidia graphic card there is a Windows10 driver you need to manualy get from the nvdia website.

If you using anything else there are issues beyond that of windows 10 to begin with.

 Voice does not seem to work for many people with windows 10 and asian text such as chinese and japanese and other special characters will not show up.
