Hello,

Yesterday, I have downloaded Castlevania demo from Steam and entered the game and then tried to change game resolution to 1920 X 1080 but when applying the resolution settings my screen went black and computer crashed. So I have restarted my PC but my screen stucked at 800 x 600 resolution on Windows and on Device Manager I have "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)". I was using GeForce 326.19 Driver - BETA drivers. I removed my card from PC and socketed again also I remove the drivers and tried again but I have still the same problem. I was using Windows 7 64 Bit Home Edition and I reinstalled it again I also installed Windows 8 but nothing works. What can I do about this? Thank you.

Until playing Castlevania demo I got no problems with my card also I didn't do any overclock on this card too, it is 2 years old and I hope this isn't a hardware issue.

Here is the screenshot of my Device Manager.

And finally if that helps or not but also on my motherboard's BIOS screens resolution is also low, I don't have this kind of problem until yesterday's problem has happened. So I think this is not a Windows only problem.

Code 43 is device failure or device driver failure. Completely uninstall your drivers and nvidia software, run ccleaner to get rid of any cruft, and reinstall current WHQL driver (not beta).

Make sure your card is fully seated and the pcie pegs are also seated.

Sounds like the infamous conflict between Nvidia drivers/Realtek Network drivers and some Windows timing issue to me.



If you have a Realtek Network interface, then try taking off the Realtek drivers and re-installing the Nvidia drivers with the NIC disables and then put either 7.46.610.2011 on (from the EVGA X59 SLI support section) or the latest Realtek here



Plenty of info out there about this issue...



+1, try updating the realtek drivers or rolling them back, there's a workaround in place in the next Nvidia driver release but until then this solution works for most people.

Sounds like it ready for baking, it you're reflowing it. "Dry" or "Cracked Solder Joint" cause most issue of overheating PCB.

OR NVIDIA NEW DRIVER ISSUE! In many thread I read of this generic error message CODE 43 in Device Menager. This occurs when user install new Nvidia driver(ver. 3xx) and restart machine. Windows is in low resolution and display device stoped working, Nvidia Control Panel also does not work. No artifacting but cooling fan goes to max speed and one user said that he observed high voltage(over 3V) for GPU core i CPUID HWMonitor after installing this new driver... Maybe that's what killed graphic card and reverting to an older driver, clean install OS or flash vga bios not resolved problem. We must all write petition against Nvidia company to research this bug!

NVIDIA's SAFE sentinel sentinel downvolting in and downclocking the graphics card. This Safe Sentinel is activated in case of a thermal issue, hardware stability issue (GPU issue is detected and recovered) or if the GPU load is not too high and it is safe to downclock (power saving). It's just a testament to how a driver power management work.

Finally, I checked in with an old driver version 258.96 (with old installation wizard) and does not display CODE 43 in Device Manager with low-res desktop. But now its does artifacting on desktop! I try with the thermal compound (the recommendation to take the heatsink of the card, remove any remains of old thermal paste and clean the GPU and heatsink contacts properly and apply a fresh layer of thermal paste). I conclude from this that the new versions of drivers are with the built-in diagnostics for health of card and any type of error happens it reports CODE 43 to stop the operation of the device. I think this is generally in response to all of the same problem-HARDWARE MALFUNCTION:sarcastic:
