Well i bought an used laptop ASUS K55vm (but its k55vj on the cover 😑) with two graphics intel hd 4000 and NVIDIA 635m.

[Bought] from someone after asking him about nvidia he said that its working fine i beieved him.

So later i made a fresh win 10 install and updated the bios but after setting the NVIDIA 635 I found a yellow triangle code 43 in device manager.

I downloaded latest drivers from nvidia website and updated drivers using drivers booster.

The triangle comes after rebooting when I disable and enable device the triangle go away and no nvidia control panel.

When i click nvidia control panel from panel control nothing happens.

I've enabled all services nothing yet happened even using DDU in safe mode and installing drivers again.

(notice after uninstalling all drivers and deleting all NVIDIA folders i see the nvidia icon but not opening ).

Tried all things but nothing [works]

Thinking of changing the nvidia card but wanna ask f its removble without soldering or anything.

Sorry and handle me plz for my bad English

Your English is okay overall - however, I edited your post a bit to help make it clearer and not change the details and information that you provided.

Sentences and punctuation are important.

With regards to the problem I recommend that you manually download all necessary drivers directly from the manufacturer's website.

Reinstall and reconfigure the drivers.

Do not use any third party tools or utilities to install drivers.

Probably soldered.

Reference:

https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/176450/asus-k55vm-geforce-gt-630m-upgrade/

Go to the Asus website and use the model number and other laptop specs to determine if the GPU is replaceable.

I also found a number of videos etc. showing how to disassemble the laptop. However, taking the laptop apart is very risky even if the videos and instructions are clear and accurate.

And being a used laptop other repairs may have been made and things may not be as expected when the case is opened.

= = = =

Going back a step: Any other error codes?

Look in Reliability History and Event Viewer.

Other things to do: Run the built in Windows troubleshooters. The trouble shooters may find and fix something.

Try "sfc /scannow" and "dism" to repair files.

Physically opening the case should be last resort and only after all else has failed.

I think it's a faulty GPU because i have installed win 8.1 on another partition .
and while installing the NVIDIA 635m drivers the screen become black only i can move the mouse cursor . i have rebooted the machine and checked device manager i found the yellow triangle with Error 43 , i've clicked disable device and enable it and again same black screen with a moving mouse cursor

May not be a supported configuration:

https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/geforce-graphics-cards/5/176450/asus-k55vm-geforce-gt-630m-upgrade/

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Asus-K55VM-SX064V-Notebook.77878.0.html

Being a used laptop with possible mislabeling (and who knows what else may have been changed) it is indeed confusing.

Need to learn more.

In Device Manager: what Display Adapter(s) are listed?

And there are additional ways to do so.

And the source of that 'nvidia-error43-fixer' tool was Nvidia's website - correct?

FYI:

https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/forums/game-ready-drivers/13/237298/nvidia-control-panel-disappeared/

Take a look and explore a bit more.
no this is the source
I have explored more here what I get after installing Nvidia control panel from Microsoft store

First link does not do or open anything. No even a 404 error.

Second link - two concerns:

1) That is [was] not the URL for the Microsoft store.

2) The Nvidia control panel should be downloaded from Nvidia's website.

Re: "was".

After initially opening further attempts resulted in a "Secure Connection Failure". Became intermittent.

I went no farther....

On the laptop run AV and malware software.
