    My card is Nvidia Geforce 8500. It suddenly stopped working whilst I was gaming causing my screen to freeze. Now everytime I try to launch a game it says 'Failed to find a suitable display device' I have checked device manager and theres a small yellow triangle with a black exclamation mark in under my display adapter, and is giving error code 43 when I check properties.
    I have tried system restore, updating & restoring to factory condition - none have worked, I really don't know what the problem is. Please help.
