Maybe someone can help me.

I bought a PNY GTX 650 and no matter how many times I install the drivers, I keep getting Error 43 and the card does not work.

Things I've tried:

1 - Upgrading power supply. There's no doubt in either wattage or amperage.
2 - Tried various different driver versions.
3 - Uninstalled all drivers, rebooted into safe mode, and used Guru3D Driversweeper before reinstalling.
4 - Updated chipset drivers.
5 - Returned and exchanged the card.

There aren't any known compatibility issues that I've discovered. I cannot even fathom what the issue is. Any help would be appreciated.

Motherboard: kn8-sli
RAM: 2.5GB
CPU: Athlon X2 4400

What  OS?  Which chipset drivers?  What was the previous videocard?

 

 NVidia chipsets.  I gave up on them after Nforce2.

OS is Vista 32-bit.  All service packs and updates installed.  Chipset is nForce 4 and is updated.  The previous videocard was an nVidia Geforce 8000 series.

Hmmmm.

 

What happens when you swap the old card back in?

The old card works fine.. as does an ancient Radeon 1600 series I have laying around.  They're both detected and function normally.  I've went as far as to trade this card out for another of the same model to make sure it wasn't defective.  No luck.
