Code 43 on Gigabyte Geforce 210

Hello.

I want to set up triple monitors and have a Radeon 4850 as my primary card. I just recently bought a Gigabyte Geforce to use as a secondary card for the 3rd video-out, but for some reason I am getting this error:

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

Check for solutions does nothing. I have tried both the provided drivers for Vista 64bit and the latest drivers off the internet.

Is the new card broken? I find this odd, because I actually ordered 2 of this card, and it does not work on my friend's computer either (his primary card is a radeon 4890).

Is there anything I can do to work around this?

Thanks!

Other info:
-I am running Vista Ultimate 64bit
-Windows is detects the card. It shows up as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" without drivers, but gives "This device cannot work properly until you restart your computer. (Code 14)" and doesn't work after restarting. With drivers it shows up as a Geforce 210 but returns the error above.

You can't have 2 video drivers running at once in windows Vista, the 4850 & GT 210 won't work together.

You can save yourself trouble by returning/selling both cards & getting a 5750/5770.

If I upgrade to Windows 7 will it work?

Is there any workaround for this on Vista?

I have had my 4850 for over a year now and don't intend to sell or upgrade it (I am not really playing games on this computer). Should I just get another one and run it in SLI?

Thanks.

You mean crossfire, if your mobo supports it, however as your not gaming it won't make much sense.

I believe windows 7 would allow the 2 cards to run simultaneous.

Actually, I looked into the 5770 and it makes sense to purchase one. It says it supports triple monitors.

However, there are only 2 dvi-out... I'm not quite sure how it would support 3 =S.

Also, can the 5770 handle 4300x1600 total resolution?

I will keep researching. Thank you!

5770 has 2 x DVI, 1 x HDMI, 1 x DisplayPort.
