CODE 43
"Code 43
Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
Recommended resolution

One of the drivers controlling the device notified the operating system that the device failed in some manner.

If you have already run the Troubleshooting Wizard, you might want to check the hardware documentation for more information about diagnosing the problem."

Did you look for and read Microsoft's explanation what code 43 is, and why it happens?

Looks to me like it could be a possible video card hardware failure, albeit one that is not a complete failure. Otherwise, your card would not work at all.

Card looks as if it works with Vista notebooks and laptops. Make/Model/System specs will help here.

When was the last time system was given a good blow-out/cleaning?
