So I bought a used GTX 1060 6GB card. The only thing wrong with it is code 43. I've tried BIOS flashing the GPU, but it won't install the driver correctly and get recognized as a normal 1060. It keeps reverting to a "Microsoft Display Adapter." 

 

Any tips? 

 

I also didn't spend that much on the card either, for those wondering. Just wanted to see if I could fix it and flip it :P

I used DDU to do a fresh install and downloaded the latest 1060 drivers from Nvidia. The BIOS it came with wouldn't take it and the re-flash I did to it wouldn't take it either. Its also not a "fake" 1060 either. When I looked up the original BIOS on GPU-Z, it didn't even exist. Maybe somewhere along the life of the GPU, someone tried make a custom BIOS? Maybe??

it's possible that the driver that device manager finds could work a little better. I used that to get really basic drivers for my 1060 when I was using it for folding, might give a different result. I know it's not usually recommended but in this case it's worth a try.

Well....here's the thing. I've tried every "recommended" driver it gives me and it doesn't work :P
