Product: HP Pavilion 500-208a Desktop PC (MS-778 mobo)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I have upgraded this pc as I have read numerous accounts of others having successfully done so. I am running windows 10. I have put in a more powerful power supply and a GeForce GTX 960 GPU. I have switched from secure boot to legacy and the GPU is recognized with older versions of Nvidia drivers, currently I have it running with driver 359.06. However the first game I tried to open says this driver has known issues, and it crashes the game. If I update the GPU driver to any of the recent versions windows shuts down the GPU with error 43 leaving me with VGA graphics only. From what I have read in support posts this is either going to be fixed by rolling back to windows 8.1(maybe) or with a BIOS update. I am running BIOS AMI 80.48, 15/01/2014. I know that newer versions exist, such as ver 80.52, however no BIOS update comes up as being available for this pc on this site, or anywhere else on the internet. Can anyone please explain why I can't find a BIOS update, are there non for windows 10, or any advice to resolve this? Thanks.
