Gpu Drivers Not Installing/Games Crashing

January 13, 2018 at 15:35:01
Specs: Windows 10 Home, Intel i5-6500
Hello, so around 4 weeks ago, i started having issues with my gpu. CSGO gives me a csm error, flickers black, lags like crazy, than crashes. Other games boot up and crash instantly(sometimes not even in the main menu)
I have Tried
-Wiping Windows and Hardrives
-Disabling/Uninstalling in Device manager
-Buying and installing a new motherboard
-Installing a new cpu heatsink/fan
-installing another gpu (they are both 960's, one is 4gb, the other is 2gb,) They both give the error code 43 in device manager
-Using different monitor/hdmi cable
-using a DDU

Basically it lets me download the update and says to restart the pc to install it, but once i restart it, it goes back to same version of the gpu, which i font even think has a driver right now because i cannot install one. I haven't tried a new PSU though, as some people said it could be that. Any suggestions are appreciated, this is really frustrating me.

Randomly replacing parts isn't a good method of troubleshooting. Please post your complete system specs - make/model of motherboard, RAM, graphics, & especially the power supply.

It wasn't random, after doing some research on similiar problems that's what the comments issue seemed to be

None of your links work.

There were quite a few BIOS updates for that board, make sure you're running the latest. Also be sure to manually configure all the settings. Don't simply load defaults & think it's close enough.

Is the monitor cable connected to the video card? I've seen posts where a new video card was installed but the user didn't switch the cable from motherboard graphics port to the video card port. You should also disable any BIOS settings related to the integrated graphics. Primary graphics should be set to PEG (PCIE Graphics).

Okay I'll give that a try, thank you. But what about not being able to install the GPU drivers? The HDMI is in the gpu

I did both those and neither worked. Do you think that getting a new ssd would fix it? I'm pulling my hair out at this point.

Did you try turning off antivirus program before installing graphics driver? (This should not be necessary but who knows.)
When you reinstall Windows what are you using? If it is not a purchased DVD then download the ISO image directly from Microsoft and burn the DVD.
A hard drive or SSD drive either works or does not. Seatools can be used to test hard drives but the SSD should be tested by the software offered by the drive manufacture.
When installing the OS, delete all partitions, create a new partition and install. Then install motherboard drivers. Then Update Windows (repeat if needed to get everything important recommended). Then install Graphics driver from NVidia site only and any other hardware drivers needed. Then install AV and other programs.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You need to research & troubleshoot, not buy more hardware. You almost replaced everything & you still haven't hit on the fix. My guess is it's either software or the BIOS. Which AV are you running? Try disabling it as suggested. What other software have you installed?

Okay so I have made sure everything is up to date and even have done other fixes to no avail. The only other programs I have installed at the moment are steam, css, and csgo. I have also made sure it is running off gpu. Still getting a code 43. And the fans do work on the GPU, but I downloaded gpuz just to make sure and it is only detecting memory clock speed and core clock both at 0mz. Any other suggestions?

Yes. I also whenever I use ddu it goes back to full resolution but when I install the drivers it goes back to 480. Any other suggestions?

try this:

disable windows update
disable geforce experience auto update
uninstall the current gpu driver
then reinstall an older version, for example:
version 347.88 from 2015.3.17

which was proven to be working with a gtx 970 with similar problem in this article:

Okay I tried that and initially device manager said there was no error with the GPU, and gpuz was even able to detect all the stuff, it even booted to full resolution. But upon launching some games, lines appeared and it would flash in certainspots and then black screen. I'm bringing to think it's a psu issue? Any thoughts?
