I just did the upgrade to 10 and it will not install the new video driver. I am not so sure its 10 that is the issue this machine and video card are both older.

Try Geforce Experience. I've used it several times to find a good driver and it's worked.

Kind of off-topic, but did MS fix that problem with Windows Update installing older versions of video drivers?

No, still happening so I guess it's better to wait until after the Upgrade to install a new driver.
