Hi all ,

Remember I just had gotten a new computer in November 2009 , well guess what it stopped working yesreday , so I tried f12 then clicked windows start normally, this worked only to get a screen saying graphics has stopped working due to error code 43.

I thought with this being new I wont have problems for a while , ( how wrong was I ) nice start to a new year ( I hope 2010 is computer promblem free :?: :?: :?: :?: :?:

    You havent had it long have you?They seem to be so sensitive as my laptop is less than 2 years old and has sticky keys and curser has a mind of its own.Takes ages to write anything on this forum.

    Hopefully the techies will be along soon.

    Best wishes Elizabeth

    Hi Mike


    Rehab's right - it should be under warranty. If you can't get it back to where you bought it from just yet, there should be a helpline number you can ring. Sometimes they know straight away what's wrong, and might be able to fix it there and then on the phone. Just be careful if it's not a freephone number though - don't want you sitting on the phone for ages if it's a premium rate number!!

    Hope you get it sorted soon.

    THANKS FOR THAT TIP WILL LOOK FOR THE HELPLINE NUMBER now( sorry caps were on ) yes rehab its still under warrantyall I wanted was a computer that would give me no trouble ( think I was asking for two much.

    Error Code 43 is a general driver failure code. A driver acts as a software link between the computer and programs or the computer and the computer parts such as the Hard Drive, Keyboard, etc.

    Error Code 43: One of the drivers controlling the device, (i.e. part of the computer), notified the operating system, (Windows), that the device failed in some manner.

    My advice, as with others, is to return it under warranty, helplines are notoriously unhelpful.

    If you want problems buy a computer, if you want chaos put it online.

    I sent an e mail to the company, they repiled , gave me a couple of things to try but problem still around , so the guy that fixes my computer called and said he will have a look at it if he cant , I think I will call the company and ask them to collect it , fix it return it good as new

    with my luck it they will tell me to send it across the water to be fixed ( hopefully not)

    Thank you for all your answers

    Careful you dont invaliate the warranty if someone else messes around with it! Best to return it to shop.They kept ours a few days but didnt cost under the warranty.

    Why not take it for a walk up stairs and then accidently drop it down the stairs a couple of times?.

    hi sylvia, its the other way round for me , my son who is 15 years old loves his playstation 3, he hates it when the electicty goes out due to windy weather he blames me ( kids are funny ) he goes on the computer to look up soaps so he can tell me what going to happen next week.at this moment my computer is working fine ( for how long that will last , i dont know)
