Windows 10 nVidia driver 372.54 and 368.81 code 43's and Event ID 4115's

Windows RT

Asked by: JordanTL

I am on my new PC with an i7-6700K, GTX 1060 6GB from PNY, 16 GB of DDR4-2400Mhz RAM and I have, as of August 16th, encountered this issue at least once a day where my screen flickers to black, then solid, bright pink. Then it resorts to integrated graphics and, if I re-enable the GTX 1060 in Device Manager, the desktop image breaks and the display is generally very unstable, requiring a restart of the PC. This seems to happen, to my guessing, because Windows is constantly trying to shove GPU driver updates to my GPU which I have used on both the LATEST and SECOND LATEST versions. This is a Windows 10 problem. What can I do to prevent my GPU from suffering more vague, unhelpful code 43 and Event ID 4115's? I can't figure out how to disable automatic driver updates, and I just reseated the GPU into another PCI slot in case it was a slot error (which I do not suspect it to be now.)

Hello Jordan,

We understand your concern in this regard.

Graphics device driver error code 43, that windows stopped your device because it reported problems. Try this:

  1. Open Start, enter (or type) Device Manager, and select Device Manager from the list of results.
  2. Find your broken device in the list (it will often have a yellow exclamation point next to it).
  3. Right-click (or press and hold) the name of the device, select Uninstall, and select OK.
  4. At the top of the list of devices in Device Manager, right-click (or press and hold) the name of your PC, and select Scan for hardware changes. This reinstalls the device driver.
  5. To see if this fixed the problem, right-click (or press and hold) the name of the device and on the General tab, under Device status, you should see This device is working properly. If you don’t see this message, check the info that came with your device or contact the manufacturer.

Coming to the driver updates, to temporarily prevent the driver or update from being reinstalled until a new driver or updated fix is available, a troubleshooter is available that provides a user interface for hiding and showing Windows Updates and drivers for Windows 10. You can obtain and run the "Show or hide updates" troubleshooter by downloading it from the Microsoft Download Center.

The following file is available for download from the Microsoft Download Center:

Download the "Show or hide updates" troubleshooter package now.

When you click on the download link, you will be prompted to open or save wushowhide.diagcab.

Opening wushowhide.diagcab will launch the troubleshooter. Then click Next to proceed and follow the instructions provided by the troubleshooter to hide the problematic driver or update.

Keep posted if you require further assistance.

Thank you.
