GeForce driver 342.01-WHQL ( GeForce 210 card)
Dear friends, I am receiving BSODS from about 2 months and I can't even upgrade to windows 10 in my Dell Optiplex 980 with the following specs: CPU:3.33GHZ ,6600 Windows 7 64bit Ram:16gb After using "whoCrashed" and "bluescreenview" ,I identified that the card driver is the cause of these crashes.So,I managed to revert back to previous driver which made my PC works normal. Is there any fix for this problem or official update. Thanks in advance,

After using "whoCrashed" and "bluescreenview" ,I identified that the card driver is the cause of these crashes.So,I managed to revert back to previous driver which made my PC works normal.

Is there any fix for this problem or official update.

Thanks in advance,

There will not be any further "driver" updates for the GT-210 due to it's EOL (End of Life) status. ALL drivers post 4/2014 are nothing more than security fixes. The 100/200/300 series was not "natively" supported by Win10. It wasn't until later after 341 (when a single line was modified in the driver to incorporate the Windows 10 hardware check) that Windows allowed the installation of drivers for said cards. Your best bet would be to stick with Win7 until you are able to upgrade to hardware which is able to use the new features within Win10 prior to installing. (Hell; you could pick up a GT-520 over on "Flee-bay" for ~$20 shipped and have full compatibility -"with DX11 features") EOL chips include those used in the 5000,6000,7000,8000,9000,100,200,300, and some lower-end 400-series graphics cards.

Thank you for your prompt answer.My geforce 210 is really old now .In fact,I have more than one month thinking about changing it ,but graphic cards have become more expensive last years.How can I get a graphic card ,ex:GeForce 1050 2GB DDR5 ,in a short time and with a good price,knowing that I live in Algeria and what do you think of it?

If the CPU is the "Q"6600 (LGA775) then there is a likely chance that the 1000-series NOT will be compatible with your motherboard. So I wouldn't worry about that... What you would want to look into would depend on the type of applications your PC is primary used for as well as your monitor's resolution and power supplied installed. Anything within the 400, 500, or 600- series shouldn't have any issues with your current hardware. A direct replacement (without the need to upgrade the PSU as well) would be the GT-610. However; be VERY wary of any card which is NOT made by one of the following manufacturers; as the 600-series is amongst the most counterfeited PC components on the planet (meaning you'll end up in the same situation you are in now). -EVGA -MSI -Asus -PNY -Gigabyte -Zotac Allow me to explain how Nvidia's model numbers work; so that you are better able to understand the differences between them, and how they are classified. 1st thing to note is that there are two differing classes of "consumer" graphics chips offered by Nvidia; [b]"GT"[/b] and [b]"GTX"[/b]. - [b]"GT" class [/b]GPUs are designed for "media" applications such as HD video playback and Flash (think Facebook) games.

A "ti" card usually has ~20% better performance than the non-ti model and is "halfway" between the non-ti model and the next model up. (ie: GTX650->GTX650ti->GTX660) -The [b]"GT"[/b] line runs from x10 -> x40 (Media grade) -The [b]"GTX"[/b] line runs from x50 -> x80 (Gaming grade); while the x"90" is a dual GPU card which currently ended with the GTX690.

Allow me to explain how Nvidia's model numbers work; so that you are better able to understand the differences between them, and how they are classified.

1st thing to note is that there are two differing classes of "consumer" graphics chips offered by Nvidia; "GT" and "GTX".

- "GT" class GPUs are designed for "media" applications such as HD video playback and Flash (think Facebook) games. These perform very poorly in "modern gaming" titles and/or 3D modeling/rendering.
- "GTX" class GPUs are designed for "gaming" in mind

-The 1st number of the model# refers to the "series" and has ZERO indication of performance.
-The 2nd # relates to the card's actual performance within that series.
-The end suffix "ti" refers to a mid-point card (or "half year" since these are usually released 6-8 months after the non-"ti" version). A "ti" card usually has ~20% better performance than the non-ti model and is "halfway" between the non-ti model and the next model up. (ie: GTX650->GTX650ti->GTX660)

-The "GT" line runs from x10 -> x40 (Media grade)
-The "GTX" line runs from x50 -> x80 (Gaming grade); while the x"90" is a dual GPU card which currently ended with the GTX690. (Titan excluded)

Example 1:
The model# GTX-650 tells us that it's a "600 series", "gaming grade", entry level GPU
"GTX"= gaming
"6"= 600 series
"50"= entry level "gaming" GPU (ie: 50 of 80)

-Then there's the "M" notation... This stands for a "Mobile" (ie: Laptop) chip and in NO WAY compares to its desktop cousin in respect to performance. Typically; mobile chips offer an approx "loss" in performance of 40%-60% when compared to the desktop version.
