    Peculiar and perplexing


    On initial start,Device manager shows the display adapter has been stopped,error code 43.When restart selected,the operation is normal and the display adapter,nvidea GeForce gt610,works without a problem,
    This situation happens every time,without fail.
    Fast startup and the other options with it are unchecked.
    the drivers are uptodate,as claimed by Windows.
    A web search for code 43 is a waste of time.
    Can anyone tell me why a restart gets the card to work after the normal start disables it?
    Thanks,
    Joe

    This error message could mean there's a hardware issue or it could simply mean that there's a device driver problem.
    Please install device driver for this device from device manufacturer website.

    I would try completely uninstalling the video card, restart the computer, then re-install it.

    Thank you both for your replies.All the standard solutions have been tried and the problem of the initial start disabling the card and the restart re-enabling the card,which works faultlessly until a normal shutdown and start is initiated once again.
    What does a restart sequence do,which accepts the card,as against the initial sequence which rejects it?

    Have you tried removing the card and it's drivers?
    Starting up windows, without the card installed.
    Uninstall any video card driver.
    Using the program below.

    Also this program runs best while in safe mode. Once the driver has been uninstalled in safe mode.
    Shutdown the computer and reinstall the card.
    Start windows and then install the drivers.
    Be sure, that before you do this. That you get/download the most recent driver for your card.
    This program is called Display Driver Uninstaller, or DDU for short.
    The program is specifically made, to uninstall AMD/NVIDIA graphics card drivers.

    Thank you Geosammy,all those methods have been tried.If it were a driver and/or hardware problem,then why does a restart completely solve it for as long as the machine is not shutdown?The fault is totally consistent and does not indicate a dependence on driver/hardware.

    Don't know if you've tried this yet:

    1) Turn off the computer
    2) Physically remove the video card from the computer
    3) Turn on the computer and let it sit for a few minutes (or until you know that it has stopped loading or whatnot)
    4) Press the power button on your computer. If you don't think it's shutting down, then pull the power cable out from your power source to turn off the computer immediately
    5) Physically insert your video card back and give the computer power again
    6) Turn on the computer and see if anything changed

    That's what I was trying to explain.
    Perhaps the video card needs to be reseated into it's slot.

    Thank you both,the next step will be to replace the card when finances permit.However,the last initial start showed no card fitted,the subsequent restart showed the card working normally.This seems to indicate an OS problem,because the indicated fault only ever occurs on initial start.SFC and DISM don't show any problems.

    The only action which fixed this issue was a CLEAN INSTALL.
