I have tried everything I know to properly install the graphics card and drivers with no success.

It is an ASUS Geforce 6800 PCI-Ex 16 256 mb...have read alot of material and nothing seems to work.
The fan spins on the card, device manager shows Nvidia 6800(with a problemm) Win error code 43...their is a problem???
All I can figure is that I have pushed the wattage to far....Advice here is appreciated thx Rick

error 43 is a driver issue most likely, what drivers are you trying to install, the ones that came with the card, or the latest ones youve downloaded? First step is to completly uninstall all NVIDIA drivers currently on the system, and then if you had previously installed the drivers that came with the card, go online and download the latest drivers from nvidias website and install those. If you had installed the latest already, try the drivers from the disc-if both dont work, try to find a earlier released driver then the latest. You could also try reinstalling the chipset drivers for your HP motherboard as it could be a conflict.
