If it is a name brand system:
Make and Model
Age of the computer
Hard Drive Size, How much free space
If it is custom then I will need the following:
The CPU brand and model
The Motherboard brand and model
Ram amount and speed
Cd\Dvd rom interface IDE/ SATA
Hard Drive size and free space
Any cards in PCI slots
Any software installed\updated and driver updates done just before problem started
All this will help in determining a course of action to best correct the problem you are experiencing.

Go to Device manager and see if there are any yellow exclamation marks on any of the video entryies.
Also I have found the newest drivers according to ATI for your video card
Go Here and click on the appropriate settings. Then click "Go" to get to the newest set of Catalyst Display Drivers Version 6.11
Download those to your desktop and hold on to them till we finish the previous step.

You may have to reboot for the settings to take affect.
If it doesn't self install but wants to create a folder or such then create it on the desktop.
Then go into device manager again and right click on the driver with the yellow exclamation mark and then on update driver
When it ask s for the location point it toward the location you saved the updated driver at.

Error Message: "The device cannot start. (Code 10)."
Translation: This can occur with NVIDIA-based display cards when the PC does not assign the correct system resources to the adapter.
Solution: For starters, know that this could be the result of incorrect drivers or a conflict with previous drivers from a different card vendor. You should download the latest ForceWare drivers from NVIDIA at www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp and follow NVIDIA's instructions for proper installation.
If new drivers don't help, then you probably need to make a quick change to one of your BIOS settings. You can access the BIOS by tapping the DELETE key when your system checks its memory during boot up. (If in doubt, keep hitting DELETE about twice per second from the time the system first lights up until you see the main BIOS screen.) Now, somewhere in the BIOS Features area, you may find an option called Assign IRQ To VGA. This is especially prevalent on older systems. This option must be enabled. (Some newer boards may lack this option and merely enable it automatically.) Save your settings and exit.

Then you updated and got the same thing. Did you disable onboard video?
Something is stopping the settings from holding.
I'm wondering if you might have some type of infection. When this problem originally started was there any software update or downloaded right before?
