Failed to find a suitable display device. What do I do?

Hello,
Just installed W7 on my computer and when i'm trying to launch a game it says that.
I've been searching the net, but without luck... Coz I can't find my driver, coz I can't see what graphic card i'm using. Need help

Might help it we knew what computer you have, coz we cant read minds. Type dxdiag in search, and it should tell you.

Download this to see what your graphic card specs are:

GPU-Z Video card GPU Information Utility

You can also look in the Device Manager to see what hardware and drivers you have.
One thing to check in there is your Display. You might need to install a driver for your monitor.

Hope that helps.

Are you on a desktop? or laptop? laptop connected to monitor?
