You will not get win 10 video or chipset drivers for the old laptop since they don't exist, so you have to make do with lower resolutions on the new monitor. Touch will not work on the old laptop. Time to upgrade to a new computer!

What a shame! I'm in a similar position with my 5 year old Vostro, not being able to upgrade to W10 due to the lack of support from Dell for the NVIDIA drivers. Never a Dell again.

Dell will not have updated video drivers for older models; no OEM will. Go to the Nvidia site and search for the best driver. May find a Win 8 or 7 version that will install. I have three  8-10 year old Dells that I was able to use Nvidia drivers to get full resolution. Don't give up!
