    The card is probably dead. Whenever I tested my MSI 1070, it would also get a code 43, some of the GPU-Z stuff was blank, and no output on the 120hz display.

    looks like the vBIOS isnt being read by the system. Which is why you arent able to boot PEG

    Code 43 in SG + 8 beeps in PEG usually means dead GPU. It’s a Dell card judging from the VBIOS version, and an early one at that, which were prone to dying.

    Yep, generally its either incorrect vBIOS or the card is dead.

    hail mary vBIOS flashing rarely leads to a desirable result.
