Is My Nvidia Graphic Card Compatible With Windows 10?
I recently read that many people are having problem with their Nvidia graphic card when they upgraded to Windows 10 T.P(like screen blackouts, poor benchmarks while testing.. etc). I have a Nvidia Graphic card (8400GS) and I don't know if those problems
will occur on my PC when I upgrade to Windows 10 Pro from my Windows 8.1 .Can anyone help by answering me this question?

Welcome to Microsoft Community. Your interest in Windows 10 Technical Preview is much appreciated.
The drivers of Windows 8.1 are mostly compatible with Windows 10. But few drivers may or may not work as expected. You may contact the NVIDIA to check the compatibility of your driver with Windows 10.
Also Get Windows 10 app checks the compatibility of every programs or software’s installed on your system with Windows 10. Through that you will get to know that whether your drivers are compatible with Windows 10 or not.
Keep us posted if you face any issues on windows in future. We will be glad to help you.
Thanks & Regards, AS

Will my existing programs, hardware and drivers work on Windows 10?
Most applications and hardware drivers designed for Windows 7 or later should work with Windows 10. Of course, with significant changes expected in Windows 10, it is best you contact the software developer and hardware vendor to find out about support for
Windows 10. Windows 10 setup will keep, upgrade, replace and might require that you install new drivers through Windows Update or from the manufacturers website.
You can also download the Windows 10 Reservation App and use it to check your system readiness.
Click the hamburger menu at the upper left hand corner.
Click Check your PC
Wait while the scan prepares a report, when complete, you should see the following:
Backup your computer: When making significant changes to your computer such as updating the operating system, you should always backup. See links to resources about backing up by clicking the link for the respective version of Windows you are running:
Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1
Microsoft's compatibility database is continually being updated with new data. What you can do is periodically run another scan to see if the database has updated information about your hardware. Even though you might get this message, you can always run
Windows Update after installing Windows 10 and download the latest driver too.
I recently installed Windows 10 on an HP Elitebook to see how well the most recent Windows 10 build performs. The Elitebook is a fairly recent model notebook which includes an assortment of hardware technologies. Out of the box though I did not get a complete
system, for instance the Intel HD Graphics 3000 was not detected and I was instead limited to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
Apart from this, I had wi-fi ready, which meant, I could connect to the Internet right away.
Installing drivers through Windows Update
Windows Update is the premier starting point to resolve most common driver issues you might experience immediately after installing Windows 10.
Simply launch it from Start > Settings >
Update and Security and click Check for Updates
Click Check for updates (make sure you have an active Internet connection).
Immediately, Windows Update will detect your system configuration and download all the appropriate drivers for your system. As you can see in the above screenshot, my Intel HD 3000 Graphics was installed automatically. I did not even have to reboot the system.
In addition to that other hardware components were also detected and installed which includes my LAN adapter and card reader.
