The AGP hotfix has been around for quite some time now. I would imagine the Win7 driver was added during the beta days.

Rage3D has a sticky thread here - Catalyst AGP Hotfix thread - Rage3D Discussion Area

Code 43 has no relations to the motherboard being too old. =(

Explanation of error codes generated by Device Manager in Windows XP Professional

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


Recommended resolution

One  of the drivers controlling the device notified the operating system  that the device failed in some manner. 

If you have already run  the Troubleshooting Wizard, you might want to check the hardware  documentation for more information about diagnosing the problem.
Right from the MS site. It's a driver issue, though since code 43 just means the driver was shut down because it failed somehow you'll have to troubleshoot on your own because MS is to vague. =(

You and the Syngus are wrong about this. Error 43 means that the graphics card is not communicating with the motherboard correctly. To remedy, a chipset and/or bios update is necessary, depending on the board and drivers loaded. This is why nForce3 or below gets error 43 in Vista and 7. Please see here:

nForce3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I see all that, but it doesn't mean error 43 reports that way for all cases. Error 43 reports only when there is a driver issue and the driver can't load. You are right for pointing out that support for nForce3 was dropped but wrong to tell the OP that error 43 means his board is too old. I'm sorry but part of helping an op out would telling him the why's correctly.

IE:
Error 43 reports a driver loading issue because support was dropped in nForce3 as of vista. So because support was dropped you'll have driver issues.

NOWHERE do I say it's to old, it's like saying SBL is to old. Yeah support was dropped, but here I am using it. I just really don't like it when people twist meanings to how they want it to be said.

Please show me where I mentioned anything about the error 43 code? (other then my reply to you)

I would suggest you read what's posted before calling out people, including the links they provide

And since you put me in the mix...

If you go to this page Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD and put in your info, under "Product Model" you'll need to choose "Radeon HD 3000 Series AGP" if your card is APG. It will then take you to the link I provided above. These drivers are for AGP cards.

Good luck

Thank you

Hi all,

I was out of town so could not reply to all of you. First of all thanks to everyone who took the time to help me out. I have fixed the problem but before I explain it, let me address some of the posts here. Regarding the AGP hotfix driver, I have been using that right from the beginning so I knew that was not the issue. Regarding the small disagreements with the posters here, all of you are in a way correct: the motherboard was not communicating to the card properly and it could be because of the drivers. Since that was suggested earlier, I decided to look into it and realized that my chipset was ULi M1689. My board is Gigabyte, but ASrock released a patch for their 939 board (ftp://download.asrock.com/drivers/UL..._AGP_Patch.zip) which carried the same chipset for graphics issues with vista. Lo behold, it worked!

All that is required is that after clean install of Win7, run the patch and the install the CCC with the driver. That's it!

I hope this is useful to someone else. This forum has been great and thanks to you guys for all your time.

Thanks,
Lex
