reinstalled driver
flashed the bios
tried different PCI slots
nothing seems to be working...

After reinstalling window and if it doesn't work its safe to assume it dead right?
It feels weird that I am getting this error after game glitched out and crashed the system once....
and mobo is still detecting it alive and kicking. It just seems like window is disabling it because of one crash...

Have you tried putting the GPU into another mobo? Perhaps the PCI slots aren't functional? I understand you said the mobo still detects which refutes my aforementioned suggestion, just for the sake of troubleshooting, I would try it.

don't have access to another one...
I never had problem with it for nearly 4 years, yet all of sudden after a crash nothing seems to be fixing it.

Maybe try completely removing the drivers, with This: http://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html

Make sure the drives are completely removed in your Display adapters in Device Manager and try a fresh install from that.

If it shows up in Windows as something at all I wouldn't count it out yet.

Artifacts, screen flashes, hard lockups and signal loss are the signs of a dying gpu.
This error 43 is something else.

I had this happen to me before and the culprit was the custom vbios i was using.

Windows 10 has been a mess. Why can't we just stick to Windows 7 forever. :D

I'm waiting until 2020 when they fully drop Windows 7 support. Hopefully by then they have had fixed all the kinks with Windows 10.

I'm only really missing out on Direct X 12, but I'd rather miss it out than deal with all the other crap.
It's not the hardware in your hands that matters, but the software in your hearts.
