Im new to this forum and Id like to say hello to everyone round here! :)

I had the same problem, a GeForce 6200 causing code 43 after VISTA installation (fixed) and again after one
particular Windows update.

Please try the following:

1. Enter BIOS on starting your system (usually done by pressing F2 or DEL)
2. Go to "Advanced Chipset Features" (Im not sure if its called the same in every BIOS version)
3. Set "AGP aperture size" value to 128
4. Save your changes and leave BIOS

Afterwards please reboot and check if your video card is listed without code 43 in the device manager.
You should now be able to install the appropriate driver for your video card if neccessary.

Please find more information on Visit My Website! Hope this works for you!
Any feedback welcome since Im trying to find out under which circumstance this problem occurs.

Have a nice day!

Hi, I am new but I had to answer your question because I did encounter the Error 43 problem too. This occurred with a 6600 and a 7600GS. The 6200 I had worked just fine with the 181.22 WHQL driver.
The best driver I found to work properly with Vista/Seven (32-bit) is the 180.84 driver. This is a beta driver before the WHQL release, but it works just fine with the x600 Geforce video cards.

The proper link is HERE:

http://www.nvidia.co...80.84_beta.html

(I noticed I pointed it to the 181.22 when it should have been the 180.84. Sorry about that.)

I hope this helps you out!

PS: If you are going to install the driver with Windows Seven, install this driver through the device manager, not the Setup utility. Since it is a beta driver, you do need to extract the EXE file into a known directory and point to the driver files manually. The Setup utility for the driver will not recognize Seven as Vista.

Thought I would add a footnote:

This is also apparent with the 7800GS. The code 43 happens with most x600 and x800 GeForce AGP cards. The Beta driver works just fine with Vista and Seven.

I have an 8800gs and I'm getting exactly the same issue - code 43 disables card - system restore hasn't helped. I am going to try to go to a restore point further back in time. Will keep you posted. I figure it can't be three graphics cards failing after update coincidentally.

I usually skip non-M$ updates, and I in general don't update drivers, unless there is a problem.
If I do, I rather go to the manufacturer web site, than rely on M$.
Where you tried to reinstall the driver, where did you get it from?

eVGA 9800 GTX+ PCI-e card; device has been disabled; Code 43, I have tried all the suggestions on this forum for a fix to the problem to no avail.
Simptoms were: red lines evenly distributed across the display no matter what the resolution setting. I tried updating drivers, rolling back and cleaning, reseating the card.
I was at the point of buying a new card. The way I was able to fix it was a heat gun at about 400 degrees F. Heat stressed the joints on the ram or the GPU.
Solder balls that attach the components to the board reflow at about 400 degrees F.

Disassemble the card by removing the screws that hold the cover and heat sinks to the components under it.
Disconnected the fan plug if it is part of the cover and set them asside. You are going to heat the board.

I basically heated the backside of the card for 4 minutes beneath the GPU and ram devices in a circular motion, 2 inches away from the board.
The motion is critical because you dont want to reflow the solder on the components on the backside, they may fall off or get bumped off.

Put the board on a flat surface and heat the GPU and ram devices keeping a circular motion about 1 inch above them 10 seconds each, to even out the heat for about 5 minutes.
(10 sec circle on GPU, 10 sec circle on ram, 10 sec circle on next ram etc. for 5 minutes)
This should reflow the solder on those major components.
Move the heat gun away from the board about 3 inches to reduce the heat slowly over the board for about 2 minutes, keeping the circular motion going.
Remove the heat gun and wait 15 to 20 minutes for the board to cool down. Put thermal compound on the GPU and rams, then reassemble the video card and try it out.
If it worked the display should be fine, if not a new card is in your future! I hope this helps?!!
