Something I found on the WG's RU tech support site discussing Windows 10 software.
Driver Updates for Windows 8
Some video card manufacturers stopped making driver updates for Windows 8. This is due to the completion of Windows 8 support cycle and the desire to translate the Microsoft user on Windows 8.1 / 10.
What you need to do:
- Check whether the site of your video card manufacturer's current drivers for Windows 8.
- If this version of the drivers on the website is not, update your operating system to Windows 8.1 or Windows 10.

Now some of us pilots have discuss the situation here
Countdown Clock for how many days left until Windows 10 upgrade deadline
Since WGNA has not talked about the subject, I thought I would let all know on our community about the subject. You may have gotten a Windows 10 upgrade notification recently.
Now I myself have upgraded to Windows 10. It was a pain because it is something new, however I have noticed an enhancement performance as a result of the upgrade. For one I am not bothered by background applications such as launchers taking over my CPU resources as it did in Windows 7. The Windows 10 platform seems a better balance in operating in that regards.
At first as I said before, Windows 10 was annoying. Why? Newness in operating. One of the things Windows wants you to do is open a Microsoft profile account to get the full benefits of Windows 10 software, however you don't need to go that route. I am doing fine with very little annoyances. I still get new application suggestions, but those are easy in click not to suggest and it removes the notice.
You will have to schedule the Microsoft Defender software for normal scans. You may have to pin some apps to your taskbar for ease of use.
Games wise with all my games I have not noticed any hiccups to note here. The games do seen to function flawlessly. I did run into a problem in trying to delete an empty folder, but that is something I am still looking into. It seems a common Windows 10 file index function problem. However, this situation is not killing the system or when playing games.
To give deadline specifics:
- You have until July 29, 2016
- The free upgrade will not be extended beyond the deadline
- Any upgrades completed before that date will be valid for as long as the device lasts
- There is a possibility that Microsoft will introduce some new upgrade offers after July 29, but don't count on it
- You do not automatically have free Microsoft tech support after you upgrade to Windows 10
If you decide that the Windows 10 upgrade is not for you, you have 2 months from the date of Windows 10 installation to rollback fully to Windows 7/8. After the two months you are stuck with Windows 10. Granted now based on the upgrade deadline this is not an issue.
A Web estimated current pricing to upgrade Windows 10 after July 29'th is $119.99 for a home system. How true? IDK. Business systems have a different pricing schema.
Overall I am having a better experience with Windows 10 than I expected. In someways it seems faster and less annoying when previous released. The notifications and the suggestions are annoying, but easy to rectified.
I give Windows 10 a thumbs up
