For the past hour or so iv'e been trying to get this 295 to work, the drivers when installed whether there windows default or nvidia's show yellow caution signs next to each core in device manager.

Windows drivers: http://i46.tinypic.com/264krgp.jpg

Nvidia 257.21: http://i47.tinypic.com/243nsjt.jpg

I have also tried the latest (258.69) beta drivers and they had the same results.

Other specs:
Asus M4A89GTD PRO mobo
Kingston 2x2GB
AMD Phenom II X4 955 BlackEdition
1x Dvd drives
2x HDD
Antec Truepower TP-650

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Code 43 is an indicator that there is a device malfunction, not a driver issue.


Below is a snippit from microsoft's error code web site page.

Code 43
Windows 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.

This would mean it is time to replace your video card.

People have has similar problems and got it working, D: I hoped that mine was fixable, back to the broken 7950.

Do you know what might be a good replacement? Like a GTX 260 maybe or a Radeon 5770?

The only way it would be fixable is if the card was experiencing a bad connection between the video board contacts and the slot contacts.

Removing the card and plugging it back into the slot can sometimes fix this problem, because it will disturb any oxidation build up.
