I just bought an Acer computer with Vista. It has 2 graphics cards, onboard ATI 1250 and a nVidea 7300 SE right out of the box. I play war games, COD, CODII, MOHAA, MOHHAB, and afew others. I plugged my monitor into the 7300 SE card and it worked fine for a couple of days then went ape shit. I had to plug back into the motherboard graphics card to view. In the device manager it shows both display cards. On the properties of the 7300SE card it says that windows has stopped this device due to problem. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for the 7300 SE but when I plug into it, I still get nothing, black screen.
same code43, I have NVIDIA GE Force 6100 and VGA ATIRadeonx1300/x1550 series,same problem

Re: error code 43
When going from the onboard Video to the Video card, on all the most computer I have seen,, you need to go into the BIOS setup screen and turn off the onboard graphics to avoid a software conflect, which it appears that you are having..

Uninstall both video cards, disable the integrated card in the bios, and then reinstall the stand alone video card. If you continue to have problems, please post what motherboard you use and what error code device manager gives.
Have you tried the windows update,usually for vista they have a built-in WDM drivers for ATI, and right now you may want to use that for the meantime if the computer did not recognize the exact model number also when using the windows update it you can check if microsoft has a new WDM driver for your video card.
The video card is a built-in video card on the mobo, right?
What you have to do, with your monitor still plugged into the onboard, is disable the onboard controller then restart.
Your screen will go to 640x480 during this process, but no worries.
Once you've logged back in to vista, open up your device manager again to make sure that your card is now enabled. If not, enable it. Also make sure that your cards' driver sortware is updated.
Switch your monitor over to the card now. No need to power down.
Open display properties, set your dual monitor setup to default on the single monitor that you do have plugged in and reset your screen resolution... and maybe even upgrade your monitor driver from generic to specific if you want.
The issue with nvidia cards isn't with vista or nvidia at all. It's a simple matter of driver conflict between the card and the onboard chip. You just have to tell vista that you'd like to make the card the priority adapter by disabling the onboard.
However, disabling the onboard DOES NOT make it unavalable to you. You can still utilize it in a dual monitor setup as a generic adapter without conflict.
