Here is some info about Code 43: what I would do is download this: Guru3D - Driver Sweeper it cleans left over files that is left over when you uninstall graphic card drivers, then reinstall the drivers that you are using.

You should clean install the retail version - have you cleaned out the drivers in safe mode then installed the new drivers in safe mode? Use the drivers guide in my sig.
