Please help! Pulling hair out here! I have been trying to find a driver for the NVidia GeForce GT 430 Graphics Card. I have tried two different drivers (of which one came from the NVidia site itself) but without any luck! At the moment I have an unusable Graphics Card sitting in my computer gathering dust!

I am running Windows 7.
Thanks!

Dave :) :unsure: :yes: :) ;) :)

Please post the make and model of the computer if branded and the full details of the O/S Windows 7 which and 32 bit or 64 bit please.

Here is the link for the Windows 7 32 bit driver ensure please that you read the installation notes on the additional installation heading, particularly the caution regarding the pre iinstallation required on certain computers ie: Dell.
http://www.nvidia.co...hql-driver.html

If of course you need the 64 bit driver simply return to the download page on the Nvidia site and recommission the necessary details.


If the computer is branded and as supplied download the driver from the Computer site ie: dell etc and not from Nvidia

Hi Macboatmaster! I downloaded the correct driver that you posted a link for (I actually downloaded the 64-bit version as I am running Windows 7 64-bit, although I didn't mention that originally!)

Also, I built the computer myself, so it is not branded.

I restarted my computer but I am still getting Code 43 error reports and device not recognised.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I had in fact covered that eventuality.


When did this problem occur please.
Was it a sudden apparent failure.
I appreciate that you say that you have installed the driver, but have you followed carefully the procedure outlined on the notes.

Further to the above Code 43 means
Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
Cause: One of the drivers controlling the device notified the operating system that the device failed in some manner.

Please see this I suggest you uninstall all Nvidia drivers for that card and start again
http://forums.nvidia...howtopic=169555

Alternatively, if you can I would install the card in another computer and see if works there.
This would be an ideal test, in case the actual card is faulty

Finally I apologise for mentioning it again, but I cannot stress too strongly the importance of read the notes.
Uninstalling Nvidia drivers from Device Manager is not always successful

Further to the above that Code 43 means in essence
Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems
Diagnosis
A device driver notified the operating system that the device failed.

If that card has its own fan - try all of this, if not check the connections to the card, remove clean as detailed and reseat.
Your video card may be falling, but let's try one more thing.
Turn off computer, open the case, and clean it inside, using compressed air.
Remove video card, hold fans blades with a chopstick, or a pencil, and give the fan a nice cleaning, as well.
Clean video card connectors with an eraser. Put it back.
Restart computer.

If that does not work, go back to what I said and if you wish do this, that will ensure that you are starting afresh with the new driver.
First, uninstall the NVIDIA drivers (if they are still installed) using Programs and Features. . Once in Programs and Features, you need to find NVIDIA Drivers and click Uninstall/Change. Make sure the NVIDIA Display Driver checkbox is checked, then click Remove

Then download Driver Sweeper from here
http://phyxion.net/i...er-sweeper.html
Reboot in Safe MOde, not Safe Mode with Networking
and complete the uninstall of all Nvidia graphics drivers.

Reboot normally (not into safe mode), and then, download and install the drivers

Reboot when prompted, and let us know if you still receive the error message.


PLEASE NOTE this is a condensed version of the full article from the link in my previous post.

Hello , I have the same problem . After the installation of my new graphics card GT 430 the code error 43 appears in the device manager.
I did a clean install of windows 7 to be sure, (after of 5 efforts to install the drivers) , that my pc is clean and fresh , I tried to install the latest driver again but the same error occured.I bought this graphic card because the old one, an ati radeon x550, caused unexpected shut downs and ... vertical lines at the monitor, while I was surfing or playing pes2010. I did everything properly.Could be that a fault of my system? I'm going to return it tomorrow, so that I want to be sure. Thanks in advance.
