What kind of system is it in, what kind of monitor are you using, and what operating system?

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.


According to the windows error code list the driver is detecting a problem with the video card itself. Do you have another video card or computer you can try that card in? if not try removing the card, blowing out the slot and then reseating it and seeing if that helps.

well when i got it, it was COVERED in crap i cleaned it all out before i first used it but im thimking it may have overheated at some point before i had it and that is stopping it from working correctly.
im now using my radeon x300 again but obviously i would much rather be using the 512mb card rather than 128mb :(

i dont have another pc to try the card in either....i have tryed all the drivers i could get hold of and installed, uninstalled them all correctly so im running out of ideas??

thanks in advance :)

My best guess is, considering the condition you got the card and the error you are receiving that the card is defective and there is nothing you can do but get a different card.

Not sure this will fix your problem, it sounds as if you are using a very used and unkept video card, but the BIOS has an option to automatically use the on-board GPU. Disabling that might be a step in the future.
