    Nope, there's no issues with the Hard drive.
    I am turning the computer in to professionals next week, but it would be really nice to figure it out.

    I ran the program on 4 different things. I ran it on Short Generic, Long Generic... and on Short Drive Self Test and on Long Drive Self Test.


    ... But I just ran a program that tells you what you have and the info about it ( called CPU ID). It couldn't find anything on graphics it seems.

    Now what I look at the hardware list it says following with a yellow triangle on it:

    "PCI bus 1, device 0, function 0
    Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

    What hardware do you have installed in your PCI slots?

    Ah, ok.. the hardwares on the PCI slots are:

    NVIDIA 9800 GTX/ 9800 GTX+ ((PCI Bus 1))
    Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller(NDIS6.20) ((PCI Bus 2))
    LSI 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller ((PCI Bus 5))
    Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller ((PCI Bus 3))

    Code 43: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems


    Device Manager displays the following message in the Device Properties dialog box, on the General tab, in the Device Status text box:

    Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

    Diagnosis
    A device driver notified the operating system that the device failed.

    Does the Device Manager show any warnings?

    A little small yellow triangle on the graphics card in the Device Manager.

    That is probably it.

    I'm leaving the computer to some guys who work with this for a living. Thank you anyway, eventhough we have not come far, I appreciate you been putting up with my confused questions and all that.


    Thank you so much, I'll come back if I get another issue + I'll spread the word about you guys. Thanks.
