I'm getting a Code 43 Error on the 1060 GPU in the Surface Book 2 (SB2). Also want to state that I have a comp/sci background and wanted the SB2 to be my main development laptop and to play some games from time to time.
Despite all the bad reviews on this issue I figured those consumers were just not tech savvy enough to easily remove the drivers and re-install things and bought this over the Macbook Pro just due to the fact that there was a 1060 graphics card embedded within a LAPTOP (awesome right? maybe I was wrong....)
Device manager will no longer recognize the 1060 properly even after a clean uninstall/install of NVidia drivers. I have uninstalled all drivers, went offline so the auto-install for the 1060 doesn't automatically kick off; also disable windows device update under properties in device manager. Then re-installed offline drivers, specifically 397.55 which addresses the following:
- After driver installation, Device Manager may report Code 43 error on a few GTX 1060 cards models.
- Netflix playback may occasionally stutter.
- Added support for Microsoft Surface Book notebooks.
- Windows 10: Driver may get removed after PC has been left idle for an extended period of time.
Still get the error no matter what I do. I have tried installing multiple versions (including the latest Nvidia drivers currently at 416.34 and still no success) The last thing I have yet to try is a complete system reformat to factory settings, which is annoying but might be the only solution in this case. Please let me know if you know of some other method to get this issue fixed. I have had this laptop no more than 14 days and the graphics card is basically unusable at this point.
