Default graphics card problem--8800GT

can't see card, get this in device maneger
'Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)

Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.'



I've talked to nvidia and they suggested I update my mother board BIOS, then update to the latest drivers, which I have done, still no luck, I have found out that BFG Tech has shut down, nvidia said "I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. However, as you rightly said BFG is out of business and therefore, it is not possible contact the graphics card manufacturer to setup an RMA. Also, unfortunately we don't have any alternate option."

any Ideas?
or do I have to buy another card, cause I really don't want to, nore do I have the money

card is a BFG Tech Nvidia 8800GT 512mb

Vista 32-bit SP2
4gb RAM

a friend of mine suggested that I upgrade my power supply, I have a 400w (the graphics card ran fine on it for a while (1 year or so)) but the box for the card said it req'd min. of 425w.....anybody think that could be the problem?
