Problem with opening old Rhino 7 files on Rhino 8

Hi! I am having problems with opening old files (created with Rhino7 last week). I have downloaded Rhino 8 today and, when I try to open those files, the objects are out of place and shape. Also, the colors of the layers “expand” all over the view? Adding some screenshots. Does anyone know why is this happening?

Looks very odd… Can you run SystemInfo in Rhino and post the results here?

Thank you!!

Aieee… Your video drivers are VERY old! 7 years for the NVidia card!

The first thing I would do is update the NVidia driver and see if that helps. Looks like there is a driver for that card from 2023.
