Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti Owners Unable to Get Windows 10
Interesting news popped up recently, it looks like the amazing Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti is surprisingly causing some issues when people try to install Windows 10 on their PC.
We picked up multiple complaints where it is being reported that reserving a copy of the upcoming operating system by Microsoft is not something that the graphic card wants you to do.
This is all the more frustrating because naturally the owners of GTX 980 Ti are high end users who would prefer to stay updated even when it comes to operating systems running on their computer.
The error message that popped up reads “this PC can’t run Windows 10,” because “it doesn’t meet system requirements.”
A little lower, under the heading “here’s why Windows 10 can’t be installed on this PC,” the message window shows the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti and says “your display won’t work.”
It would sound absurd but apparently the reason is that the GTX 980 Ti as well as Windows 10 are both too new which is causing issues relating to recognition. A small compatibility update should fix the problem I guess.
The same was, indirectly, hinted by Sean Pelletier, the Senior Product Manager for GeForce SW at NVIDIA over at his twitter account where in a reply to query he said “advisor issue. Long story short, 980 Ti owners will have no prob on 7/29 & have an incredible Win10 experience.”
Hopefully Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti won’t remain a problem for too long for those who wish to get a copy of Windows 10.
