What kind of PC do you have, brand and model?

What version of Windows 10 are you running, build number and version? (i.e. 1709 16299.100)

What kind of device?

The Code 43 is specific to the Device Manager.  This is telling you that the driver for this device has a problem.  If you open the Device Manager you will probably find either a yellow warning icon or a red error icon.  Click on this category, then double click on this device, then click on the Driver tab.  Uninstall this driver and shut down the computer, then start it back up, a new driver will be installed when you start the computer.


Just curious... what is this device?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
