    I don't wish to sound skeptical, but somethings doesn't quite sound right here. All computer parts usually come with at least a 12 month warranty, so if your 2nd, six months old video card has failed, then it should be covered by the 12 month warranty on that video card.

    Simple, just take it back to the original place where you brought it from, along with the receipt, and they should replace the video card that should still be under warranty. (they might test it first, or send it away to get tested, before they replace it)...

    What's hard about that???

    It would be very usual for a number of computer components to all fail at the same time, so it's unlikely to be a major drama. (unless there's been a major power surge go thru it, or some other catastrophic event has happened. "Like being dropped from a 3rd floor window").

    As the saying goes; "Why throw out the actual bath, with the bath water"...

    Cheers, Mac...

    Allow me to clear up some comfusetion I did not toss the PC out I put it under my bed, I already spoken to the PC teck at work about PC he thinks its the video card, The screen shuts off for no reason at random I tyed reinstalling windows 6 times and checked the card its self it. Opening it up voided the warranty but i didn't mass with anything MSI are picky about stuff.

    I may end up saving up and buying last years video card for it, other then that there's nothing wrong with the hardware or OS.
    Tanks for all your info and support!

    Ask around your friends to see if they have an older video card that you could borrow & install to confirm whether or not it is in fact the video card that's faulty.

    (I was only pulling your chain when I mentioned the 3rd floor window)...

    I hope that the problem is not to serious. Good luck in sorting it out.

    I also recommend trying another power supply if you can lay your hands on / borrow one. They can appear to be working, but may not be delivering all of the feeds within the required tolerances. On an almost new build, I suddenly got boot failures that were reported as a memory issue, however that turned out to be the power supply. Quality brands are not exempt; mine was a Corsair 80+ gold unit. Luckily, these also come with a good warranty.

    I been getting this error code a lot I googled it and did my research but nothings helped much. I looked at the cost of a new video card and its 230$ can for a new card of the same make far less then I thot.
    Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

    I have gotten this message "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)" as a result of a conflict with a Windows upgrade and the AMD video driver. Nothing physically wrong with the video card.

    I did think as a passing commentator said that it was an odd situation that such an expensive pc is only valid six months and is only covered for that short time. Most places that sell where i am last a lot longer than that under warranty so a big disappointment of course whilst a puzzle.

    Wait, doesn't the new Windows 10 update not settle well with AMD based cards? I wouldn't know due to 1: running a nvidia 1080 and 2: running Windows 7

    Try installing the latest amd video drivers or take a nvidia card, the drivers from nvidia are a lot more stable then the amd ones, what you can try for your amd card is download an older version and see if the problem still exist, it wouldn't be the first time that these newer drivers give problems, had a amd video card once never again even opengl wasn't working right.

    If you ask me by an nvidia card a 1060 or 1070 something like that.

    Probably just needs a complete display driver removal and re-install, use DDU or similar. http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/...-download.html

    I was trying to advise you that you may not have to spend the money on a new video card but with your attitude I couldn't care less.

At this point I wont be uploading anymore content or working on anymore or my Canadian route CAC that has been my key project for years. I'm sorry everyone there will not be any more updates and I'm not sure wend of if I'll get back into trainz after my PC wend on the lighter side it can be fixed but I don't feel like pumping money into a piece of junk that can't last a year. (feel like throwing it off my 3rd story deck to be 100% honest here)

    I don't know wend I'll get the next update for the CAC done and I can still make models if I feel like if but for now I'm going to work on my large HO layout and forget about the PC for awhile I'll post videos for you all wend I can of the new layout on YouTube.

    I'll get back into making content ones my head clears and I feel like doing it agen but for now I'm going on extended leave.
