PNY 8800 GT 512, Code 43. ( Baked, Worked! )

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I got an older video card from a friend of mine for free, being that it kept giving him a code 43, I've tried all the driver issues, everything I've found on the internet. The card itself isn't that important to me, I was just going to use it in an older computer of mine.

I'd heard something about baking the video card? I'm not even aware if the issue is related to the problems that sometime fixes. Any advice? Someone else have the same problem?

if you don't care about the card, and you can't figure anything out, I would say bake it, you can't lose anything at this point.

It has two DVI hook ups, will the plastic be ok?

well all the guys that bake cards have had no issues, and there is no way of removing that plastic, It should be fine. Just remove everything possible from the card.
