Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 (error code 43)

As the title says, I get an code 43 on my 1070 graphics card.

I have tried:
Uninstalling Drivers with DDU
Reinstalling older drivers and also newest drivers

This dude reported the exact problem I have: https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1009291/-help-...
(I tried the steps on the site but they didn't work...)
Almost everything is the same basically. I played Overwatch, exited and then my computer crashed. When it rebooted my primary screen wasn't working (so I'm currently using my secondary monitor) and in the Device Manager it says that Windows stopped my Graphics Card with the error code 43. What can I do? I very recently installed driver 382.05, but it doesn't seem to really be the problem as I rolled back my drivers quite far?

  1. Have you recently upgraded OS's? For example, from 7 to 10?

    Also, you could try and download drivers meant for older operating systems as that may clear up your issue.

    I have not. I bought this computer a couple months ago and it came installed with Windows 10. And I also heard this problem got fixed for someone by doing exactly that, but I didn't try it as it didn't sound logical and wasn't sure if it could mess something up. I will try installing drivers for Windows 8 and come back with the result.
  3. This is an odd issue that requires trying a bunch of fixes till one works.
    Update your bios to the latest version.

    Create a bootable flash drive with a linux OS (Xubuntu) on it. Then restarted your PC and access boot menu. Selected boot from the flash drive and proceeded to install Xubuntu. Only select install third party software, then hit continue. On the next screen when asked to erase disk select quit. Shutdown your computer and start up normal. The error should be gone and the graphics card should work.

    I'm trying to do it now but the installer won't allow me as I use Windows 10 and not Windows 8
  5. Any idea how to install 1070 Windows 8 drivers on Windows 10?
  6. Contact tech support from the manufacturer of your GPU. They should be able to walk you through the procedure to get the correct drivers for your card.
