Windows 7: Nvidia 9800gt Error code 43

12 Dec 2009   #11


I went ahead and ordered a $30 PCI-E x16 2.0 card to test. If that one works correctly I'll known for sure then if it's my video card or something else.

Reasonable, but I still have a hunch that it is something else.

EDIT: When you install that new card, you "may" need to reinstall the driver. Check in the Device Manager to make sure that the adapter is properly identified and using the proper driver.

If your BIOS is like mine, there is a setting to select which PCIe slot to use. Also, be sure to uninstall the old video card in the device manager, before installing the new.

If you have blank cd's around you could try getting a linux LiveCD and see if that'll load though I guess you'd want to test opengl/3d to see if it works but the problem is you'd have to install the propriatary drivers. =( idk if you have any small hdd's around but if you did you could get a liveCD install do that hdd (unplug everything else) then install the nvidia drivers (a lot easier than you'd expect) and then test it with glxgears or install one of the many free 3d games. At all else if you had an extra hard drive it'd give you something to do

edit: when I say unplug everything else I mean unplug other hard drives before installing linux, due to the linux windows war that is waging

Just finished installing ubuntu 9.10 on a small HDD, after I boot into it all I get is scrambled video. I had everything but my video card, mouse, and keyboard unplugged. I even unplugged my sound and extra dvd burner :-P

My tester video card just got in and works perfect. Seems it was hardware failure. Thanks to all who helped. Time to start the RMA process, I like XFX
