Hello, I just upgraded my Windows 10 version. I have GeForce on it but my desktop is saying that I need a Nvidia GPU. I already have one in it! What's the best way to fix this?

    First check the windows update history & observe if there was any pending/failed update specially related to the external VGA card/ GeForce. If yes, try to update again. Other way you can open device manager and check if the VGA driver is shown properly.

    What model GeForce card do you have and what version of DirectX does it support? You can find out this information in the control panel. I had a similar issue with my laptop. It may have been just glitch WIn10 but sometimes I would boot up and it would not find my dedicated 4g video card. Power off and reboot then it worked.. A few days later the same thing, would not find the video card... I think after the last set of Win10 updates the problem has gone away.

    If any driver shows as registered for it, it might be best to uninstall the driver, go through a power cycle and see if Windows can find/install a new one or it might properly reinstall the existing one.

    It might only be that it needs to be installed in its proper order, and going through the process may set everything cleanly.
