    Hello, I have 2 Graphics cards and both of them are giving the same issue, I believe it is an issue with the cards themselves as I have tested them in different PC's and they give the same issue regardless of how the PC is set up, I've done quite a few re-installs of windows from Windows 7 up to the latest windows 10, I've tried older Nvidia drivers plus ones that Microsoft hands out, I've reset my bios, reflashed my bios and I'm now at the point of reflashing the cards themselves as if all else fails then why not, As a side note the cards are stored away in their boxes and my PC is currently using a GTX 760 and I have a GTX 950 for when this one fails. I'm really just looking for suggestions on how to fix them or some ideas on what might be wrong with both of them.

    Where exactly did you see this Error 43, in a particular game ? At Windows boot up ?

    It displays the code exactly like it does in the image I have attached. Also because it refuses to use the hardware because of this error, Gaming is impossible and the resolution over HDMI from the card is stuck at 800x600, The card powers on and displays what it needs to like the windows desktop and stuff like that so the PC isn't rendered useless.

    Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > Display adapter and Right click Update the driver. See if the problem goes away. If it still persists, go to Nvidia and download the latest driver and see what happens then. The one supplied by MS is usually older.

    I have tried that and it either installs the Microsoft one if i haven't installed Nvidia drivers before hand or says the driver is up to date, Regarding the Nvidia drivers I have tried new and old Drivers, Problem still persists and it doesn't change on fresh installs either. The problem is always there regardless of what Windows i use or what drivers i use and even what PC i use.

    The picture you posted with the error is for a GT650M GPU, that is either onboard video or used for onboard video on a laptop, You are not showing the add on GPU card. Windows may be detecting it wrong, I had a similar problem with a HD6350 showing up as a HD 5450. Are you sure you have the drivers for the GTX650? May have to select them manually.

    The reason I posted a screen shot of a different GPU is because that GPU isn't mine but experiences the same issue as mine , I did it like that because taking apart my PC only to have it show the same error is a bit pointless, I'm sorry I should have pointed it out to begin with, The issue however remains the same and different versions of windows isn't solving it, neither are different drivers or completely different PC's, I'm trying to find out why both cards would fail with the exact same error as the one in the screenshot despite even being moved to different systems with the same result.
