I get a message that states I need an newer Driver
the messages state there are know bugs with the GeForce 8400 GS Driver version 4.3
you need to update to Driver version 4.78
That is all fine and dandy but after checking with EVGA and NVIDIA the most recent driver is the 4.3 that I am using...
However there is a newer driver for a Win 10 system but I am running Win 7,
is there something I missed or a driver download area I am not aware of?

First thing I would do is put 'Slimdriver' on your computer and run it so you can see all your driver's. Slimdriver will show you the lasted driver's for your pc. If 4.3 is the lasted driver according to Slimdriver, I would recommend to install Windows 10.
I think you can still update it for free and it's pretty easy. It may take some time to get used to but I thought windows 7 no longer get any updates so you can better use Windows 10.

ok I still get the message and Nvidia techs have told me that for my video card the version I am running 342.01 is the most current and FINAL LAST upgrade for GeForce 8Series and they will not be making anymore updates for it. although my card is new they are already calling it obsolete. it is wrong for them to do so but they are doing just that.
however I found the underlying issue with my crashing and I will post it on that message.
Thanks for responding I appreciate it. it isn't a matter of upgrading to win 10 it is a matter of upgrading my new video card with another new video card... go figure that one out (:
