A02 BIOS up date Precision t 1600

I have a Precision T 1600 that is operating dual monitors, and the graphics becomes unstable and one monitor shuts down. The Nvidia Quadro NVS 300 error shows up as an error when I go the task manager, and this message appears.  

Device PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_10D8&SUBSYS_0862103C&REV_A2\4&396ceebe&0&0008 requires further installation.

When I reboot the system everything works fine for a while.

I have gone to the Dell sight and ran the driver down loads, and it looks I have several updates to preform. first it shows the A16 is the latest Bios update. one article I read said that I have to start with A03 and keep updating until I get to A16?? not sure I want to install the updates until the system crashes. Just not sure what to do at this time??? HELP

The original Windows OS was 7 Pro, I am running  Windows 10 ( I know Dell is not support drivers)

RE: A02 BIOS up date Precision t 1600

10 is not supported with older bios there are 16 updates from A00 for a reason.  The NVS 300 is EOL EOS and only uses LEGACY Driver.

The current drivers DO NOT and WILL NOT EVER work for this card.

You cant jump from A00 to A16 in one step.

Windows 10 defender may actually PREVENT bios updates from finishing and brick the machine.
