Windows 7: 8800GT (Code 43)

8800GT (Code 43)

Hello everyone, I've been experiencing problems with my card since yesterday. While I went to class in the morning, I returned within an hour to a monitor that was completely black.

After restarting, my screen is forced at 800x600 and they are trippy bar lines all around my screen. Since then I've reinstalled Windows 7 multiple times, downloaded new drivers, and updated my bios.

None of which is helping. I'm thinking maybe Windows update downloaded something while I was gone that forced my card to be undetected...

I uninstalled the 8800GT and the drivers thinking maybe a new installation might solve it, but now (the new driver) is saying it doesn't recognize Windows 7 32-bit as actually being Windows 7 32 bit.

Now I'm stuck with it not even detecting a graphics card.

Please help!

Quick update: after a reboot it detected it again, however the Code 43 is still there.

trying to read with these barlines everywhere is horrible.

And I was really loving Windows 7 too!

Bump.

do I have to bite the bullet or something and wait for NVIDIA to do something about this? I'm seriously tempted to just go out and buy a new ATI card or something.

Install the latest driver from NVidia using the manual device manager method.

This is for ATI, but it's the same procedure. Follow my post here, number 7.

ATI Radeon drivers install, but fail to initialize

Start looking at "right click your card in device manager," ....

If you still get error code 43, you might want to look into drivers for your chipset. See if they can be updated as well.

In rare instances, a motherboard bios update could be helpful for code 43 if all other options were tried.

Followed your steps until after I selected to try to run it. I bypassed the "not digitally signed" whining, but it gave me a message stating it could not find AMD 760G. And no, I did not click any of thise AMD cards from the list that showed earlier.

Alright. Tell me your 4 digit value when you go to find the hardware id. The instructions for that are in the previously referenced thread as well, post 3.

Also, I tried to download your GeForce 8 series Win 7, 32 bit driver from NVidia but they don't have one for Win 7. That's the problem.

Which did you download?

They do have this for Vista and will work. http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_wi...1.07_whql.html
It's weird. The page says Windows 7 too but telling their wizard you want Windows 7 driver, it says doesn't support. You can only find this page by telling it you want Vista.

If not, the hardware id will be handy. Let me know how this goes. You may have to use the device manager to install.

Cool. Install the driver from my last post and tell us how it went. Good luck. I'm making you an .inf now in case it doesn't for 191.07 driver.

Edit: Custom .inf not necessary. Device 0611 is already included in NV_Disp.inf.

These necessary lines are present.

%NVIDIA_DEV.0611.01% = Section004, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0611
NVIDIA_DEV.0611.01 = "NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT "

Should install well.

Nope. Didn't work!


I'm starting to think my card may have just flat-out died...

anyways, that driver you linked to didn't fix my problem.

In fact I had installed that same driver as soon as I first installed Windows 7 lol
