NVIDIA Code 43 Windows Has Stopped This Device Because It Has Reported Problems

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43) – Updated 2021.

This issue is becoming an headache for many users, we had the same bad time and took us several hours to fix the problem, the main reason is one: Not anyone can solve the problem in the same way.
We decided today explain you some of the possible ways to fix this.

At the beginning we thought was a problem of our PC with installed previously a ASUS GTX 1050 Ti and now a Zotac GTX 1070 Ti but we figure out very soon that this afflict all the RTX and GTX Nvidia cards from 2015 till now also for the Laptops.

The problem persist with the new generation cards from 2019 like GTX & RTX 2060 and 2080 we found several topics about it. Today we will tell you all the solution things we tested.

Let’s start to understand step by step how to solve this issue.
Mainly we understood the problem appears after accepted to install the Windows Update, and after restarting the system the multiple monitors did not work anymore:

“We would like to remind this problem can happen also in some cases with the update of the Nvidia Drivers.”

Solution 2 – Reinstall Drivers

Many times can be due to faulty graphics drivers. As you can see, there’s the yellow mark next to the device name in Device Manager if you want to check that follow the first 2 steps of Solution 1.
Try now to uninstall the Nvidia graphics card driver using the following steps:

1) First of all we need to download a program dedicated to remove completely any track of the drivers named:
Display Drivers Uninstaller DDU,

If you can please restart your PC and enter in Safe Mode, we did it without and it worked fine anyway, remove all the drivers:

2) After the system Restart, follow this link to download the latest Nvidia drivers, remember to choose the correct card details.

3) Install the drivers using CUSTOM install, and select Perform a Clean Installation,

4) When finish, restart the system.
after check if the problem is solved.

Solution 3 – Windows Recovery

We found also the case where the problem was due to the latest windows update, so we decided to Revert to a Previous System Restore Point.

4) When Windows will start check if the problem is solved.

Solution 4 – Install Older Drivers

We found also a way to solve the problem using a previous version of the drivers. Looks like sometime the new drivers can make this problem come out. For this reason we will explain you where and how to install the previous Nvidia Drivers.

1) First of all we need to download a program dedicated to remove completely any track of the drivers named: Display Drivers Uninstaller DDU,

If you can please restart your PC and enter in Safe Mode, we did it without and it worked fine anyway, remove all the drivers:

2) After the system Restart, you need to follow this link Nvidia Archive & Beta Drivers and select an older version of of your drivers version.

3) Install the drivers using CUSTOM install, and select Perform a Clean Installation,

4) When finish, restart the system.
after check if the problem is solved.

4) Now restart your PC and check if the problem is solved properly.

Solution 5 – Nothing of this works

This was what happened to our PC and the reason still not clear 100%. The only way to make it work as been to install the Geforce Gamer Ready Driver.

1) First of all you need in any case to follow the procedure removing all the drivers using DDU software as explained in Solution 2 and 4.

2) At this point follow the link to Geforce Ready Driver Download.
Follow the installation procedure as explained in Solution 2. (point 3 and 4)

3) When finish, restart the system. After check if the problem is solved.

4) We have now all the monitors working and preliminary test of some games give us a good result, without drop down FPS in gaming.

Solution 6 – Script Solution

This solution as not been made and tested from us differently that the others, but we can suggest you to have a look to the great work done by eGPU.io

They developed a script that  fix the problem.

1)  Download this attachment:

2)  Extract it to a folder & navigate to that folder

3)  Double-click nvidia-error43-fixer.bat

4)  Click YES to UAC approval prompt

5)  Follow onscreen instructions & prompts as shown in above screenshot

IMPORTANT: You have also to consider that the issue can happen for HARDWARE problems. In some case the PCI of the graphic card was not plugged properly, in other cases the alimentation cable was not anymore plugged properly.
In the worst cases the Graphic Card was broken or some component is not working properly.
We also want to advise that in some cases all the procedures above did not work, and a fresh format of the PC as been the only solution to solve the problem.
