re: Attention Win10 + Nvidia 10-series owners

If you are fortunate enough to have just gotten your hands on a 10-series GPU from NVidia (1080 GTX, 1070 GTX, 1060 GTX, etc) and your run Windows 10 you may run into this issue.

Issue: when trying to install the drivers for your new card you get an error message stating "This NVIDIA driver is not compatible with this version of Windows". No, you did not accidentally download the wrong driver. The issue is that Microsoft recently released a service pack for Windows 10. The NVIDIA drivers require this service pack as a minimum version of Windows 10 to install. Your machine, for whatever reason, has not had the service pack installed. Hence the message. The message, however, is confusing because it makes you think you got the 32-bit version when you're running 64-bit or you downloaded the Win7 driver or something.

Solution: You can manually run Windows Update and it will find the service pack and install it for you. It takes a while to download and install as you might imagine, but once complete the driver install will work.

2 Corinthians 5:21. "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf that we might become the righteousness of God in Him." All people are sinners by nature and by action. All people are sinners from birth. All people are born alienated from God who is Holy, cannot look upon sin, cannot fellowship with sinners. That alienation because of sin prevents us from knowing God. He is too perfectly Holy to have anything to do with sinners, except to reject them. Now the result of that rejection, the result of that alienation in time is Godlessness. The result of it in eternity is hell. So this alienation in to which every human being is born is indeed a serious issue. It means that everybody lives their life without God and if they die in that condition, will spend their eternity without God in torment.
