The closest thing to a work-around is to remove the NVIDIA adapter from 
the device manager, and use only the Intel drivers. For some, that 
worked. For others, the Wind10 update program still saw the NVIDIA 
GeForce 310M as present and incompatible.  I'm definitely bummed. Of 
course, it's out of warranty - it was purchased in 2010. It may have to 
remain Win7 pro, just as my old Inspiron 9400 is still WinXP pro. It'll 
be only the Inspiron 15-R that's currently running Win 8.1 64-bit that 
can possibly be moved to Win10. It's my current main computer. Do I want 
to risk it on Win10? Got about a week to decide.
