Failed to find a display device.

This is what my computer is currently telling me whenever i try to open a game. If i restart i can once again get into games and such.
This has been happening during games, i will play and then the screen will go black, then i have to alt tab out and a ATI message is up to report the problem, so i am assuming its my graphics card, but im not sure.
It doesnt always do that though, sometimes my computer will freeze up and Ill have to manually restart, after that everything is fine.

I dont really know what to do, do i have to get a new graphics card or what?

Any suggestions would be really appreicated.

I have talked to some people and they say i need to get a new card, but i am just making sure.
Also all drivers are up to date, and i recently reformated when i first got the problem.

hmmm could be or it could be a driver compatibility issue. What hardware are you running? what video card and what motherboard to be exact? as well as what operating system.

The full message should be Failed to find a suitable display device.

Have you tried updating the graphics drivers?

I didnt find any errors in my device manager, and my hardware acceleration is full.
Currently I am going to remove my old drivers and try to reinstall the new ones and see if that helps.

Another friend said it might be my graphics card is overheating and i should make sure my fans are working fine.

I think I got it working. Apparently one of my old drivers was corrupted or something. Once i removed it and reinstalled it seems to work fine, or at least work well enough to last a month until i get my new one.
