Troubleshoot a Code 43 error from the Windows Device Manager or by downloading updated device drivers.
Windows displays the Code 43 error message and prevents the hardware device from activating when one of the drivers controlling the hardware notifies the operating system that the device has failed. If your computer displays a Code 43 error, Microsoft advises you to first check the hardware device's documentation for advice on common problems and how to troubleshoot the device.

Double-click on the faulty hardware, which the Device Manger might label with yellow-black exclamation mark icon. Click the "Driver" tab in the dialog window, and then click the "Update Driver" button. Windows checks for driver updates and, if found, automatically installs the new drivers.
