    Hi everyone,

    Just after repasting both GPU and CPU and adding two additional RAM slots to my CLEVO p650 laptop the Laptop didn't turn on again, giving BSOD screens all the time.

    The stock RAM sticks were 1.35v, the new additional ones were 1.5v, so, I took them out just in case and tried restarting again with no luck.

    Tried reinstalling Windows and everything seemed to work unless the dedicated 970M videocard, which seems to have some kind of issue now. I cannot install Nvidia drivers and Windows seems to be blocking or disabling the videocard.

    It shows this error, code 43.

    I guess it is now using the integrated HD 4600 as it boots normally to windows.

    What the heck could be causing my videocard not to work? Something ram related...? I have no idea...

    Sorry for the speech and my English. [​IMG]

    What happens when you try to do a clean install of the Nvidia driver?

    Also, do a web search for 'Nvidia Code 43', as I just did and others have experienced this.

    Repaste has gone wrong.
    Revisit your pasting method.
    Good luck.

    Just after checking the paste it miraculously revived.

    I have been doing a lot of research and it seems that the paste I've been using is too dangerous if not applied correctly.

    Liquid ultra metal paste.

    Thank god.

    Consider yourself extremely fortunate. Liquid metal accidents don’t usually have a happy ending like this.
