Question about PNY XLR8 NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT code 43

I have a Dell XPS 420, which is also equipped with a NVIDA GeForce 8800 GT. I've had this computer for almost 2 years and right when I get my first problem its out of the dell warranty... I'm a huge PC gamer the problem I'm having is while I'm gaming the program locks up, I noticed that vista was trying to alert me to the problem saying that a device wasn't responding I went to the Device Manger to discover that my gfx card wasn't "working properly" code 43.. I've been searching all over the net for a fix to this problem I've done everything suggested but still no success.. I'm trying to find some help that doesn't require me to reinstall my OS (again) or uninstall/install my drivers.. any guidance with some tangible information would be greatly obliged.

My computer spec's are as follows:

Manufacturer: Dell
Model: XPS XPS_420
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
Memory: 4.00 GB
OS: 32-bit vista SP 1

Most likely you will want to try and update the driver for the grahics card maybe even uninstall the device and reinstall it will be a big difference. I also suggest trying this before the driver update.... try to do a system restore back to the point where you think it last worked it could have just been another program that is interfering with it. Be sure to save your game files under your game folder on a flash drive incase it uninstalls your progress of it. If you need help doing that let me know ill explain more on how to keep the game files and such. Be sure to update the driver later on. Lastly i would check and make sure the fan is working...or heat sink on the graphics card isn't getting to hot that could be another cause to the problem goodluck!!

My NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra has stopped because it has problems Code 43. What is Code 43 ? How to fix it ?


Code 43 means that one of the drivers controlling the 8800 notified the operating system that the device failed in some manner. Check the hardware documentation for more information about diagnosing the problem. You can also download the latest drivers for the 8800Ultra from the Nvidia website.
Just select the following for each heading:
Product Type: GeForce
Product Series: GeForce 8 series
Product: GeForce 8800 Ultra
Operating System: Whichever Operating System you are using
Language: English (US)

Then click search and finally download.
The file size should be around 80.4MB.

My Dell XPS 420 will not turn on. Power light


Hey! Nice Computer! ( At least while it was working! Specifications show some high-end hardware parts)

Steady amber light on the Power On light, means a bad power supply.

The Dell XPS 420 uses the standard ATX style of power supply found in 90% of computers out there.
(Personal computers. Not the Cray Supercomputers!)

This is Dell Support, and the User Manual - Removing and Replacing Parts - part of the manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps420/en/OM/HTML/parts.htm#wp1466871

From Me:

1) Computer unplugged from power, computer case open. TOUCH the metal frame BEFORE you reach inside.
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out computer hardware components.
You won't see it, or feel it.

Computer unplugged from power, you are safe.
Touch the metal frame Before reaching inside, your computer is safe.

Should you get up for any reason, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again)

You either have a 375 Watt, or a 425 Watt power supply.
I would recommend a power supply with more Wattage, and more Amp's on the 12 Volt power rail.

The Dell XPS 420 comes with an Intel Core2 Duo processor, or an Intel Core2 Extreme processor.

These puppy's can use a lot of power when gamin', or other intense programs are being used.

The Nvidia GeForce 8800 Series of graphics cards offered, use a lot of power when maxed out.

The motherboard with the Intel X38 motherboard chipset, uses a lot of power.

I would recommend a 600 watt power supply for a replacement.

My recommendation would be an OCZ StealthXStream 600W

Why?

1) If the temperature of this PSU is kept under 118 degrees Fahrenheit, the PSU can put out 728.8 Watts reliably. (47.9 degrees Celsuis)

2) It has Four - 12 Volt power rails.
EACH power rail can handle 18 Amps.
That's a total of 72 Amps!

3) It has all the power cables you'll need.

A) 20 + 4-pin ATX motherboard power cable
B) 8-pin 12 Volt power cable (8-pin EPS)
C) 4-pin ATX power cable
D) SATA power cables [ 3 ]
E) Peripheral power cables, (4-pin Molex) [ 6 ]
F) 6-pin PCI power cables. [ 2 ]

Not advertising for the above website, nor the PSU manufacturer. Recommendation supported by personal preference, and experience.

Well if you installed the correct drivers for your video card and have the proper power supply requirements, then the vertical lines you're getting most likely indicate that your video card is bad.

Try it in another computer if available, or get another video card.
