Re: Code 43 error On My Radeon 530 Graphics card

There are many Lenovo Ideapad 330 Models of your laptop. Can you specify which 330 you have?

Make sure your laptop has the latest Intel drivers installed, BIOS version, and CHIPSET drivers installed. All three help in making drivers and hardware more compatible.

It is best to install Lenovo's own AMD driver first to make sure you laptop is working correctly.  Once you install Lenovo's AMD driver and your laptop is working as it should be then try installing AMD own generic laptop driver from here: https://www.amd.com/en/support/graphics/radeon-500-series/radeon-500-series/radeon-530 

If that doesn't work or still have major problems try installing an older previous version. It is possible the latest may not be compatible with either your Windows version or laptop hardware from here: https://www.amd.com/en/support/previous-drivers/graphics/radeon-500-series/radeon-500-series/radeon-... 

Then follow this basic method to install your AMD Drivers to prevent corruption or incompatibilities:

Uninstall the current AMD Driver using DDU as per this method:

It could be due to a corrupted AMD Driver installation.

Download free program DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller). Run it in Safe mode with the internet disconnected.

You can also run it in Windows Desktop but then you would need to Reboot the computer for DDU to finish erasing all of  the AMD Driver traces from your computer.

 Once it finishes uninstalling the current AMD Driver in Safe mode and boots back to Windows Desktop, still with the Internet disconnected, delete the AMD Installation folder C:\AMD if it was created before.

Now install the full AMD Drive package you downloaded manually from AMD Download page. Not the express package. Run the package and if it installs correctly again delete C:\AMD folder and reconnect the internet.

This should prevent any conflict when installing the new version from the previous version.

By the way, C:\AMD is always created whenever you run the AMD Driver package

If you laptop is still having the same problems with Lenovo's own AMD Driver I suggest you run diagnostic on your laptop to rule out defective hardware or incompatible software you may have installed or open a Lenovo Support Ticket.

Or you can reset your laptop to factory defaults by using your Laptop's Restore Disc and see if everything works correctly again.

Re: Code 43 error On My Radeon 530 Graphics card

I would show the results to Lenovo Support to see what their opinion is.

I inputted your Laptop Serial Number and your laptop isn't under Warranty anymore. It is expired: laptops and netbooks :: 300 series :: 330 15ikb type 81de :: 81de :: 81de00wrin :: pf17s8lz Lenovo P... 

If Lenovo Support won't help then open a Thread at Lenovo's Community and see what the Moderator or other Users believe is the problem: Lenovo IdeaPad 1xx, 3xx, 5xx & 7xx, Edge, LaVie Z, Flex Notebooks-Lenovo Community 

The 530 Memory test should have passed as well as the Intel Graphic Memory test. The diagnostic does seem to indicate a defective GPU card.

Before doing anything from above:

1- Update your laptop BIOS which has a very recent BIOS update: laptops and netbooks :: 300 series :: 330 15ikb type 81de :: 81de :: 81de00wrin :: pf17s8lz - US 

2- Update all of your Intel Drivers including CHIPSET and especially the Intel Graphics driver:

In case you didn't run the latest Lenovo's Diagnostic software:

Re: Code 43 error On My Radeon 530 Graphics card

HI i updated all drivers from the lenovo driver update page. i downloaded a 3rd party driver software updater which listed a couple of my drivers in which one of them was PCI express root port. when i try to install this driver it hangs my pc and i have to restart my pc  by going into safe mode and uninstalling my intel drivers.. i will upload a file of the missing drivers. If u can send me a link for the download of these files it would be helpful or I could contact MIcrosoft Support??  thank you.

Re: Code 43 error On My Radeon 530 Graphics card

See if by updating all of your Intel Driver will help your laptop with your GPU card.

Use Intel own Driver Updated called Intel Driver & Support Assistant from here: Intel® Driver & Support Assistant 

Stange, GPU-Z seems to recognize your GPU card is installed but, at the same time, not recognized since no Data is showing.

So either your GPU card is defective or the laptop motherboard is defective.

See what happens once all of your Laptop Drivers are updated.

If the same thing occurs than you need to open a Lenovo Support ticket or take your laptop to be checked by a computer shop.

Re: Code 43 error On My Radeon 530 Graphics card

Don't use a 3rd party Driver updater. That type of software many times downloads and installs the wrong drivers for your computer causing major headaches later on.

Use Intel's own Driver Updater which I gave in my next reply with the link to download it. Intel Driver Updater will download the correct Intel drivers for your laptop.
