My external monitor suddenly isn't working and found out on my device manager that AMD radeon graphics has a "code 43"


Recommended Posts

my laptop has an AMD ryzen 7 4800H with integrated AMD radeon graphics, a GTX 1660 TI, my OS is in windows 10. My laptop has a 144hz display and an external monitor (60hz) that is connected to my laptop which works PERFECTLY FINE before everything.
 


So on my laptop screen, DOTA 2 was open while in my external monitor/display, I have my Discord and website open. I was just watching youtube vids when suddenly my monitor froze then laptop display turned blue with text saying " ;( windows ran into a problem" or something like that. At first I thought it was the fabled blue screen that breaks your computer but to my suprise it just automatically restarted my laptop, upon typing my password on my lockscreen, I noticed that my external monitor isn't working and that my laptop display looks weird. So, I asked a friend and told me to check my device manager and I saw that my AMD Radeon Graphics has this "code 43" thing, so he said to just update my drivers and update my windows software, so I did all that and its still there. I did a little exploring myself on my laptop and found that my laptop display was using MS basic display and that it was on 1hz, now I was panicking because I was thinking that my driver is broken or gone, so he told me to try using the one on the AMD website that updates drivers, and so I did that but still nothing. As for the monitor, I tried trouble shooting it, connecting-disconnecting it, force detecting with settings, using the "add device" button under "Bluetooth and other devices"  still nothing, I really dont know what to do. I dont even know what happened before the blue screen

I seen people uninstall their drivers then install it or using the roll back options but idk, what if something happened to my laptop, I dont wanna risk it ;(

OK, first off, how is the monitor connected to the laptop? (HDMI, Display port, etc) second, you said that you have integrated graphics as well as a GTX 1660. Have you checked that the Nvidia drivers are current, version 460.89 is the most current. Also I would attempt to disable the integrated graphics or the Nvidia, and see if the display comes back. I found this website that talks about the error 43, and how to potentially fix it. Also check AMD and see if your drivers are up to date, as that can cause issues as well. Third, check and see if there a specific driver for the external monitor, sometimes that can fix issues as well. As a last result, download and run DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) and let it clean the system of all display drivers, and then reinstall them.

do you have any files in your log folder? ALL BSODs are saved there. We need the exact 000X000## code so we can help you :)

The monitor is connected using HDMI cables, I checked my nvidia drivers and no, they are not updated (installing the updated drive right now). About the disabling of integrated graphics or nvidia, I dont know how to and I'm scared it might affect something, so I might do that as a last resort. I checked the website you sent that talks about code 43, I did about 2 of the methods, the others require uninstalling the drives, updating the motherboard, and flashing(?) which I myself dont know what the outcome may be so I didnt do those. I dont think my monitor has a specific driver. Ill also do the DDU as last resort. (update just installed, im about to restart to check if there are any difference)

Open Whocrashed, and press the button that says Analyze, then it will instruct you to scroll down and see the results. It will then give you an idea as to what caused the BSOD,

Yeah, that's a Memory problem...

 

Try running MemTest. It's on a bootable CD/USB. Run it for at least one cycle, see what it brings up. Overnight is preferred. Try running this with only ONE stick at a time. If it's just one stick, you can refurb the bad one, or can still use the system with your remaining stick.

 

ANY warnings, your memory is bad, need to buy new ones.

Exactly what I just determined from the dump files. Hardware.sys so either CPU or RAM, and considering one of the errors was Memory Management, I would say it is a strong possibility that you have bad RAM modules.

Update: I slept just before the replies so, sorry for that but before I slept I shut down my laptop then for some odd reason after waking up just now and opening my laptop code 43 was gone, my display were connected to my radeon graphics instead of the MS basic display, as well as my external monitor being detected and can be used by my laptop for some reason. I dont know what I did yesterday but I followed some of you guys' tips, maybe one of those fixed the code 43. As for the RAM problem, I didnt expect to run into ANY PROBLEMS really, especially because my laptop is pretty brand new (bought about last week of november or first week of december) but I'll try and find guides on how to use the MemTest that Mr. mindovermaster was saying so I could avoid more BSOD and heartattacks xD. Just wanna say thanks right now because idk what might happen I do the test lol

Good to hear that it is working like it is supposed to. It will not hurt anything to run Memtest,it's just to rule out the RAM being the issue. I have had brand new out of the package RAM that ended up testing bad > month, so you can never be too careful and check everything, even if it highly unlikely that it could be the problem. Even with years of experience of building computers, I have found that sometimes it is the smallest, most obscure thing that causes the biggest problems, like something not screwed down all the way, or a cable not completely plugged in, and have spent hours upon hours trying to figure out what happened, only to discover something minute like the a fore mentioned items!

To what JNelson said, do the memtest, anyway. Even though it may work fine again, you might come across this same error.

 

I had several RAM sticks that went bad. The system would work, but not to it's full potential. RMA or replace. Will save you more times than you know.

      Cyberpunk 2077 1.2 update pushed back, now aiming for second half of March
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      CD Projekt RED has been readying the next major update to Cyberpunk 2077 for some time now, with Patch 1.2 slated to land in February. However, the studio today revealed that it has changed the timetable, with the update now coming to all platforms in the second half of March, if the new plans don't experience any hitches.

      The recent cyberattack on CD Projekt is partly to blame for this delay according to the Polish company. The attack left its internal systems compromised, servers encrypted, and some internal data leaked. The studio was already in the process of restoring the encrypted data when the announcement came through, but the process has obviously affected the development flow.

      The upcoming update is reportedly much larger in scope than previous updates as well, which is also a cause for the delay. The studio added that "we’ve been working on numerous overall quality improvements and fixes, and we still have work to do to make sure that’s what you get."

      So far, CD Projekt RED has released one major Cyberpunk 2077 update aimed at increasing performance and squashing bugs. There have also been several hotfixes for resolving urgent issues. The studio's roadmap for the RPG has it pushing out multiple updates, free DLC, as well as the next-gen console upgrade in 2021.

      Apple is investigating an issue related to 'pink squares' with the M1 Mac mini
      by Usama Jawad

      Apple announced the M1 Mac mini in November 2020, promising 3 times faster CPU speeds, 6 times the GPU performance (with support for 6K displays), and 15 times the machine learning performance over the previous generation. While the performance of the Apple Silicon chip has been praised, the company is reportedly investigating an issue where "pink squares" appear when the new Mac mini is connected to a display.

      Multiple threads on Apple's forums have cited an issue where random pink squares appear on the display when the M1 Mac mini is connected via the HDMI port rather than the Thunderbolt. One such thread has over 500 endorsements from users who faced the same issue. The forum post mentions that:

      While the culprit behind the issue is currently unknown, MacRumors has obtained an internal memo, dated February 19, which indicates that Apple is investigating the problem. In the meantime, the following troubleshooting steps have been mentioned in the memo:

      Put the Mac mini to sleep Wait two minutes and wake the Mac mini Unplug the display from the Mac mini, and then plug the display back in Adjust the display's resolution in System Preferences > Displays As Apple has not publicly acknowledged the investigation yet, it is unclear as to when a fix will be released. That said, it should be sooner rather than later given that the company is actively looking into it.

      UK's Supreme Court says Uber drivers are employees
      by Paul Hill



      The UK's Supreme Court has ruled that a group of Uber drivers, 25 in all, who took Uber to an employment tribunal, are to be considered employees of the firm rather than self-employed. For the time being, the employed status only applies to this group who brought the case but it could have a wider impact on the gig economy where people essentially perform piece work without other benefits that employees enjoy such as sick pay.

      The case, which was finally settled today by the UK’s Supreme Court, has been going on for around five years now. It was initially played out at a London employment tribunal which found that the drivers were entitled to paid holidays and rest breaks but Uber appealed the decision so the case progressively went through higher and higher courts.

      Britain’s 60,000 Uber drivers will not see any change to their employment status for quite a while yet, among the 25 who brought the case, details about their employment will need to be worked out over the next several months, it could even be the case that another employment tribunal hearing is needed to work out how much money is owed to the drivers.

      Commenting on the results, judge George Leggatt said:

      Uber has faced calls to make drivers employees in other countries too; Californians recently voted to keep gig economy drivers as contractors rather than employees after Uber and Lyft poured more than $200 million into a campaign to keep the existing regime.

      Surface Duo gets February Android security patch and other improvements
      by João Carrasqueira

      It's only been a few weeks since Microsoft rolled out a software update for the Surface Duo, since the December and January updates got pushed back and ended up releasing at the end of last month. Now, it's time for the February update, and it comes with the usual monthly Android security patch, in addition to some other improvements.

      This week, Microsoft released the Surface Duo in Europe, and that means the update is rolling out to users in both markets. While the updates in the U.S. and Europe have the same changelog, they have different software versions. Here's what's new:

      Software version Update info 2021.115.52 (North America)

      2021.115.54 (Europe)

      This update:

      Addresses scenarios outlined in the Android Security Bulletin - February 2020. Improves Surface Duo UI stability. Improves single tap touch experience. If you're one of the early European adopters, you'll notice there are actually two updates rolling out, because the December/January update is also available now. The changes are all the same as the North American patch from last month, but they come with version 2020.1211.87 instead.

      As usual, the update is available for unlocked devices first, so if you bought your Surface Duo from AT&T, you'll need to wait a little longer. It usually takes about a week for the rollout to begin for the carrier-locked version, though it could always vary.

      Aside from the delayed update in January, Microsoft has been servicing the Surface Duo every month, and the company promises three years of security and feature updates, so improvements will keep coming over time. One thing that's worth noting is that the Duo is still running Android 10, which is starting to fall behind especially as Google has begun testing Android 12 this week. The Duo has been reported to be getting Android 11 in the summer, which will be close to the official release of its follow-up. Just yesterday, Microsoft also updated the Surface Duo emulator for PCs with new sample apps that make use of its dual screens.
