How Do I Fix Error Code 43 in Windows 7?

This is probably one of the most frustrating and "generic" error codes reported by Windows. When I say "generic", I'm referring to the fact that Windows is basically telling you that a hardware device on your PC is well... not working. (Gee, Thanks!)
Error code 43 is reported anytime Windows does not recognize a device - whether it be a USB port, Hard drive, video card or any other piece of hardware connected to your computer.
You will usually see an error message like this:
"Error Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems"
And if you look at the hardware under Windows device manager, you will see something like this:

NOTE: The hardware device above is only an example. It could be any device on your computer that is reporting error 43.
What Causes Error 43? 95% of the time, error code 43 means that a device driver is either missing, corrupt, outdated (so Windows problems communicating properly with the hardware), or the hardware is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Device drivers can become damaged or corrupt over time, and most users will eventually experience a driver error. Installing and removing software and hardware can cause conflicts in the registry and can alter driver communication.
Sometimes you can bypass the error temporarily such as removing the device from the motherboard and reseating it, removing the power cord from the power supply and restarting your computer after a few minutes, etc. However, theses are temporary and will not fix the actual problem.
Solution For Fixing Error Code 43 Messages The first thing of course is to make sure your device driver is up to date. I have provided two ways to accomplish this below:
Option #1: Update your drivers automatically (the easy way)
If your not that technical and don't want to hassle with trying to locate the correct device drivers from your PC's manufacturer and then go through the process of uninstalling and re-installing your drivers manually, then you should run a free scan with a recommended driver tool.
This software will match and download the correct drivers you need. It's safe and saves a lot of time keeping your PC updated.
Option #2: Update your drivers manually (the technical way)
If you consider yourself pretty technical and feel confident making changes to your system, then follow the steps below:
Step #1 - Uninstall the current driver:
First, you need to uninstall the current driver...
  • Click "Start > Run" and type "sysdm.cpl" in the text box and press ENTER
  • Open the "Hardware" tab on the System Properties dialog box, then click on "Device Manager"
  • Double click "Device Type", then click on the hardware device that is reporting Error 43
  • Next, go to the "Driver" tab and click "Uninstall" to uninstall the device driver completely
Step #2 - Locate the correct driver:
After you have uninstalled the driver, visit the manufacturers website and locate the newest driver for your device. You can usually find the latest driver under the technical support or driver section of the company's website.
Step #3 - Download the driver:
Download the driver and save it to your computer. It will most likely be compressed in a .ZIP file, or an executable file (.EXE).
Step #4 - Install the new driver on your PC:
Extract the .ZIP file or double-click the .EXE and install the driver.
Step #5 - Reboot your PC:
If you uninstalled the old driver and installed the correct new driver, it should fix the communication problem between Windows and your hardware device, eliminating the error 43 message. If not, you might want to install the faulty device on another PC and see if it works correctly.
If you continue to experience problems then most likely the device itself is damaged and needs to be replaced.

Good luck.

Dell latitude d830 screen not showing but external screen showing and on device manager NVIDIA QUADRO says windows stoped this because it reported a problem error code 43 and the drivers are up to date

Error code 43 means a driver either didn't load properly, is the wrong one or is missing.
Check video driver by running in safe mode. If it still won't work the laptop screen, replace the screen after checking it isn't the backlight by shining a bright light at the screen to see if anything is showing.

Hey guys, I have a interesting question for you... Every time I open any program of any sort (except for internet explorer) it doesn't even open, just gives me this "encountered an error blah blah...

what are facing is a problem caused by a virus that either destroys files that support .exe applications to run or it replaces which makes your machine unstable. my first solution to you is to repair your operating system using the operating system cd. secondly, if that doesn't work please try installing a second os on your system and then you do a dual booting. u then delete the folder of the previous os. if that does not work u backup ur files and then you format ur system with a new os

System32 dll file is missing or corrup

There is a good possibility that you are having a hardware failure of the Hard Disk Drive, causing the windows error.

Either in the BIOS or in the F12 boot menu should be an option to run diagnostics, see if the hard drive fails. If it does, then you need to replace the drive.

If not, you will likely need an XP Installation CD so you can boot to Recovery Console and run the command CHKDSK /P to try and recover the operating system

Windows will not start file is missing or corrupe system 32 drivers ntfs.sys first time this hapen its a hp pavillian destop a700n

Sometimes this error can be fixed by running a CHKDSK from the Recovery Console.

Basically, boot your XP CD and select to repair your installation with the Recovery Console, then enter the command:

chkdsk c: /R

If this doesn't solve the issue, you may be looking at a repair install, also called an in-place upgrade.

Hope this helps!
