[Sticky] [SCRIPT] nvidia-error43-fixer
Aim: To fix Windows 10 Device Manager showing error 43 against a GTX10xx or RTX20xx eGPU running on a mPCIe, EC, M.2 or LUA interface that makes the eGPU inoperable. Here we distill a lengthy fix requiring an older 368.81 driver into a one-click script that can be applied to the latest Nvidia driver.
1) Download this attachment:
2) Extract it to a folder & navigate to that folder
3) Right-click on nvidia-error43-fixer.bat & select Run as administrator
4) Follow onscreen prompts & instructions as shown in above screenshot
|Expresscard||Michael Friis, Waifu4Laifu, newt, Flood Gates , Arbystrider, randommuser|
|M.2||Robert Evans, jkey, nando4|
|Lenovo Ultrabay Adapter (LUA)||intruder, rusTORK|
@nando4 suggestion: show a menu-like interface (numbered) for each available adapter, then user can type in number for the adapter to patch for 🙂
Though it is fair to say there won’t be too many of them anyway. Great work!
Just tested this small script. I deleted NVIDIA drivers with DDU and installed fresh ones 416.16. First one of the cards have got Error 31 (need install drivers), after i installed them i did re-boot and there was Error 43. I run script, answered new questions and re-boot. Error 43 is gone.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
Got tired of programs giving me the middle finger when I tried to run on driver 372.70. No newer driver would work, no older driver would work.
Decided to finally update my drivers to 416.16, and this script turned out to be a godsend when I encountered error 43.
X230T, EVGA GTX1070 Hybrid via PE4C-EC060A, Windows 7.
ThinkPad X230t, i7-3520M @ 2.9 GHz, Windows 7
EVGA GTX 1070 Hybrid, 2113 MHz @ 1043 mV
x1.2Opt, PE4C V3.0, 4Gbps-EC2
Thank you so much. It worked in Windows 10 with 416.16 driver.
In Windows 7, it did not work with the latest 416.34 but worked with older 39x drivers. Didnt try with all. Dont remember the exact version.
I couldnt build an expensive system for VR, so I hooked up a 1080 to my old Alienware laptop for VR via the EXP GDC Beast 8.0. This does the job for me.
