    This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    I need some help here with system upgrade. I am planning to upgrade my existing cpu and motherboard. I am rightnow using Nvidia FX5200 graphic card. I changed my motherboard. But after that I can see in device manager a problem with the card. In the hardware properties it shows me that device cannot start. I a not able to find any fix for the same. While I had updated all the drivers here which does not look to be working really well.

    The error simply means your system is not having the driver to run the hardware. You have to find a proper update for the same. Try changing the slot also if driver update also does not work. There are chances that the slot may be not proper. If you are unable to find the drivers through official website, then you can try running windows update. Which will give you more help in getting the right driver.

    I think that the graphic card is not compatible with your motherboard. You will need to find the right drivers or else it will not work. Did you checked the graphic card specification before buying the motherboard. On that basis you have to compare the board also or else this kind of problem will be common. You will not be able to work on the same until you get proper drivers.
