Make sure you are using the correct driver for your operating system. You can download drivers for Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit here:
Epson Stylus CX9300F Drivers Software

Note that this is a non-US-based website. Make sure that the language of your version of Windows 7 and the Epson driver you install are the same.

I cannot cannect my 6230i nokia to my computer when connected your device is reported windows error 43


Error Code 43 is a Device Manager error that means the following:
Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)
When you get this error with USB devices it's because one of the drivers controlling the device notified the operating system that the device failed in some manner. It will be of issue of the loaded corrupted drivers. You should reinstall the operating system or reinstall the drivers that doesnt have virus or file damages.

What is code 43


Code 43 Error Message

The Code 43 error is one of several Device Manager error codes. The Code 43 error will almost always display in the following way:
"Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"
Details on Device Manager error codes like Code 43 are available in the Device Status area in the device's properties: How To View a Device's Status in Device Manager.

Cause of the Code 43 Error

A Code 43 error is generated when Device Manager stops a hardware device because the hardware reported to Windows that it's having some kind of unspecified problem.
This extremely generic message could mean there's a true hardware issue or it could simply mean that there's a driver problem that Windows isn't seeing as such but that the hardware is being affected by.

Error Code 43 Troubleshooting

Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.

There is always the chance that the error Code 43 you're seeing on a device was caused by some temporary problem with the hardware. If so, a restart of your computer might fix the Code 43 error.

Note: Some users have also reported that powering off their computer completely (not just a reset) and then turning it back on has corrected their Code 43 issue, especially if it exists on a USB device. In the case of a laptop, turn it off and remove the battery, wait a few minutes, and then put the battery back in and start the computer.

Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before the Code 43 error appeared? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 43 error.

Undo the change if you can, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 43 error.

Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. Code 43


Code 43 is triggered when the device stops responding completely. So if it hasn't been disconnected it means that it has failed at a hardware level - it has died. Sorry, this is terminal, time for a new one.
