Error 43 with NVidia 372.90 and newer drivers -> Use 372.70

Recommended Posts

Driver 376.09 does not work for me with mPCIE, using 1060 GTX.

 

Yes because if your using mPCIE, the only newest driver found to work with mPCIE is 372.70. :(

But even I haven't gotten it to work sadly.

 

  EDIT: You might have hot plugging disabled in you bios? I used HWiNFO to see if my mPCIE had hot plugging enabled.

376.09 didn't work either?
Darn, I started to think that nvidia are ignoring us, the mpcie users, and focusing more into the more mainstream and profitable with bright future, thunderbolt?
Or did they intentionally do this?

Not sure why you would even think they cared in the first place? Specially for an interface that they dont even support.

Very logical answer...
So we still stuck with this, maybe for a long time.

Jesus man does anyone even bother to read the previous posts ?

I responded to people interest, if you've bothered to read the previous posts,  if driver 376.09 does work. It does not.

 

I was considering buying RX 480, but went for nVidia due to better driver, DX11 support... Thanks nVidia!

So.. I'm kinda new to all this egpu stuff. Deal is that I got 1050Ti and surprise, surpise, I get that 43 code error.
After reading this topic I see that's problem with drivers, but some people some how manage to run them.
Anyone fancy helping out noob in this businness?

Laptop: Acer V3-571G
Cpu: I7-3630qm
Gpu: GT-640m
Adapter: Exp Gdc Beast V8 (yeah it works, I tested it with 750ti and had no problem)
mPcie set to enable hot plug in bios.

And for now, well just thanks for anyone that manages to get a solution and will share with us :)

Edit: well dunno why, but after simple driver uninstall I just installed 375.63 drivers, and suddenly it started working :|

Can you tell me how do you do it (steps  please), i just unistall drivers with DDU and then after restart a do a clean install of driver 375.95, restart after that and nothing still show de code 43 error.

One thing that i saw is the laptop installing again the gt 750m driver, and the gtx 1050 ti appears too but with de warning icon how can this happen if am using the nvidia driver desktop for the gtx 1050 ti, Since it can happen if before this i unistall all the drivers (sorry for me english). 

 

specs:

lenovo y400

i7 3630qm

gt 750m

NV_DISPI talk time

 

 

Let's clear something out about this NV_DISPI.inf  everyone is crazy about.

It's not the holy grail and THE file that you need to worry about ! NV_dispi can be FINE and you're still screwed.

 

Why? 

READ ON FOR ONCE: 

 

NV_DISPI.iNF is a instruction/ descriptor file that is used during install AND adds in your registry certain informations {HKLM }  regarding copied files and their USE by Windows AND copy  specific files from the display driver folder  to the system folders (like system32 / syswow64 ) and activate specific services required by your GPU. Even if it's perfect , if a DLL is screwed or from another driver, you're screwed. 

And good luck finding out which of the TONS of dll's and registry keys is screwed.

 

Thinking that just having the correct nv_dispi file will fix stuff, is ludicrous.

It's like saying if you have instructions on how to build a rocket, you don't need the correct materials (dll's)

 

Once again: nvdispi is a set of instructions to your pc as to

-what deviceID  that specific driver supports (THIS is what you can mod- desktop to mobile , otherwise 99% it wont work)

-what files to copy for a specific deviceID from the mountain of dll's inside the driver folder

-what registry keys  system needs to ADDRESS the dll's and USE them for the display drivers

-what services  it will have/install/use for your display driver.

-what other instructions it must follow if a specific dll / instruction table is copied (in my case, nvami- i have an ASUS) Why does modding nv_disp work from desktop to laptop?

 

-if all these sound like mumbo-jumbo or you dont understand what they do/are , please stop right here. it's definitely out of your league.

 

( Acer & Gateway = nvaci.inf
Asus = nvami.inf
Apple = nvaoi.inf
Compal = nvcti.inf
Clevo (Sager & other re-brands) = nvcvi.inf
Dell & Alienware = nvdmi.inf
Fujitsu = nvfmi.inf
HP = nvbli.inf
HP = nvhmi.inf
LG = nvloi.inf
Lenovo = nvlti.inf
MSI = nvmii.inf
NEC = nvqni.inf Siemens = nvfui.inf
Sony = nvszci.inf
Toshiba Qosmio = nvtdi.inf
Toshiba = nvtsi.inf 

....etc )

 

 

Why it works to mod the nv_dispi and nvami/etc  to install desktop drivers on laptop edition gpu?

 

-Because the gpu inside your laptop it's the same architecture as the desktop one, with (usually) same  parameters , same processor, just "dumbed down" and underclocked like crazy so it can work with the power requirements your laptop has.

 

-If the architecture is different, there is 99% chance it will never ever work, or just error out.

 

Even if it's modded, if the dll you need  (..GOD knows which ! ) , has a bad syntax somewhere....you're screwed.

It's like forcing a square peg in a round hole and hoping the paint won't chip on either.

Doesn't work like that.

 

PS:

ok, I ask him to copy it.

He said that he clean install the driver (may be by using DDU) and than install the 375.70 driver

can you just do that (not to edit the 
nv_dispi file)? please tell me if it's work :)

My friend prove it whit this image

Untitled_zpsgt7bpm8s.png

 

 

 

 

An ENTIRE forum says it's not working ....and your "friend" says it is.  

 

I smell something fishy....as in i call bullsh*t.

I think it's one of those troll posts like "i got it running! woot!...." and the guy disapears  off the face of the planet after 2 posts.

 

If it's NOT and it's legit, I want to see GPU-Z screenshot and dxdiag screenshot, display adapters screenshot of the integrated GPU, laptop model, setup , and windows version.

And a benchmark, any benchmark, off the iGPU and Egpu.If not, it's bullcrap..

 

Why?

 It may look like it's working, but gpu-z  wont give any readings off the Mhz of the gpu. 100%. It's an intermitent error I had sometimes when I installed 1050ti over the base drivers, and they somehow got mixed.  The gpu doesnt work at all, and after you uninstall everything and DDU, you will get error 43, like normally.

Even if it says it's working normally, gpu-z WILL NOT, i repeat...WILL NOT give correct Clock readings....aka: bogus installation.

 

 

And I'm coming back to what the last 6 pages wrote,and NO ONE NEW TO THE FORUMS cares to READ:  

 

 

1050 Ti  DOES....NOT.... WORK ...OVER...mPCIE  YET  !!!!

Stop littering the thread !

if you can enable hot plugging on your mpcie thru your MB then you dont need to do any modding. im currently using gtx 1050 ti oc on my acer aspire v3-471g windows 10 laptop with exp gdc beast v8.0 setup with no mod . just mod my bios to enable all option and VIOLA!!!

yes, but for those who do, you guys don't need to mod the nv_dispi. just enable hot plug/swap for your Mpcie. if you have uefi MB just enable it, if you have bios, search for a way to open/unlock all option

just install like you would normally do and ignore the error 43 you will get, restart your computer and the error 43 should be gone. however i had to go back to 375.63 as im experiencing problems when im playing the division.

Hotplugging  isn't what you say it is.  

Start here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hot_swapping

Then read this: 

 

 

OUR problem here is USING it AFTER it gets detected.The problem is with the drivers themselves , not the MB not accepting/recognising the card.

If the issue was with hotplugging, we'd use egpu 1.30  and just  load a PCI dump that works, for example the wifi card. We would use it, in layman's terms, if the gpu would not be detected by windows, or it would have issues allocating.

 

 

 

 

 

A few posts ago you asked for nv_dispi.....and i explained why it's useless above.

 

 

 

 

Since you mention it works... i really gotta ask how were you able to mod your bios  but you don't understand the nv-dispi ' s role.

 

how did you mod your bios? what program did you use? did you use a chip reader?

 also, can you show us proof the gpu actually works? like a screenshot with dev manager, gpu-z with clock speeds and dxdiag ? or maybe ingame where you can select which gpu to use?

BIOS modding does not necessary need a chip reader and its seriously simple to do. IF you know what program to use and where you can find it.

 

And the issue is not only about the device ID's. For the 1050 and 1050 ti , sure only the device ID's might be missing. But since the last few driver releases starting with the 372.90, NVIDIA has been trying to implement TB3 hot plugging (or something related), and that has messed things up.

And Hot Plugging not just a motherboard related function, drivers use  it for real time detection.

it was a trick question.

usually you dont need any tools, you just get the flashed bios on a stick and use home+del while booting up or something to relash from the usb drive.

Usually even if it's still bricked.

But there is always de-soldering the chip and writing it way, of course. ebay can get you a chip writer for 5$ i think.

I already have a modded bios, since i have replaced and upgraded my laptop's internal nvidia gpu + dyi'd  the heatpipes for the new gpu.

thank you and 'grats.

 

i'll post your laptop model so people cand find it for quick reference: 

 acer aspire v3-471g i7-3612QM 2.1 Ghz iGPU hd4000 / dGPU GT 640m / eGPU evga GTX 1050 ti sc exp gdc v.8

 maybe people with your laptop model can find happiness as well with this dreaded 1050ti.

 

 the forum you were on is bios- mods dot co m , prolly. 

 

and those guys usually use amibcp to mod bioses, and use universal bios backup toolkit toolkit 2.0 to extract the original one.

Love the level of your lack of knowledge and then the arrogance. Either ways, if you dont know about something , at least stop spreading mis-information. 

And almost 99.9% BIOS's out there if unlocked properly will have the Hot Plug function available.

And no there is no need to de-solder the chip unless you mess something up.

 

But hey man, you "DIY'd" your heat pipes. You are a BIOS modder now.

 

 

 

And to other people having the issues with the GTX 1050Ti, the Code 43 issue is not just a driver issue. Just the fact that the card is showing up in the device manager as a "1050 Ti" and not a Microsoft Basic Video Adapter is proof that the drivers are recognizing it. 

You need to find a way to enable Hot Plugging in your BIOS for the respective PCIe slots.

      I am running Windows build 16193 (Redstone 3) on a portable SSD as Windows to go. And macOS Sierra 10.12.4.
      Windows to Go was created using EasyUEFI's wintousb program.
      I have previously used Windows 8.1 to success and 10 which needed DSDT override. 
       
      This is a guide on how i get Windows 16193 working successfully with RX 480:
      1. Leave Thunderbolt cable unplugged from Mac before turning it on.
      2. Press option to load Windows to go Portable SSD Windows 10 16193 build.
      3. Enter DIY eGPU Setup 1.35 with iGPU connected only. Configure it as:
      Press 3 to enter Menu based setup PCI Compaction 》 Legacy mode checked 》 Closeunusedbridges checked 》 ignore none 》 Endpoint 》 56.25GB-36bit 》 Run compact 》 iGPU 》 force iGPU to 32-bit Chainload mbr Select Windows 10  from OS selection menu As soon as the Windows logo comes up hotplug eGPU. When OS is about to load up, change display output to Displayport.  
      Voila!
      Every time you want this do be done automatically, reboot into DIY eGPU  Setup 1.35 and hit ENTER (or allow 10s countdown to do it for you) on the default option 2 "automated startup via startup.bat".
       
      The Setup:
       
      1. Use paperclip trick to get PSU turned on without motherboard.
      2. Two molex connectors from psu to rocketstor 6361a molex connections. To give power to 6361a motherboard.
      3. 8 Pin pcie connectors to GPU. And chassis bent to fit RX 480.
      4. Modified back of chassis to allow Displayport connection into GPU while GPU can be screwed firm into chassis.

      Hi all, I have a macbook pro 15 inch retina mid-2015.
      I joined a Aikitio thunder2 with a graphics card GTX 1070 but there are problems with the internal monitor of my macbook.
      first of all we will list the specific to this topic.
      my macbook is equipped with two graphics cards, an integrated and a dedicated, integrated is an intel iris pro graphics while one dedicated is an amd radeon r9 m370x 2 GB gddr5, and obviously the eGPU GTX 1070.
      the problem is that with the external monitor connected via hdmi to egpu doesn't show any problem while using the internal monitor that should take the video signal from the thunderbolt has lagged.
      Mafia 3 with settings on external monitor turn 54 fps while on internal monitor turn 9 fps!!!
      i have windows 10 on bootcamp.
      There is not much difference and it occurs to me that the problem is the thunderbolt.
      members of tech hell please help me!
