I have windows 7 running on the computer listed below.

For some reason when I play Hitman Absolution via Steam, I periodically get this error.

I play lots of games haven't seen this before.

Just wondering if anyone has seen this or what it could mean.

Have you tried updating DirectX ?

Graphics card drivers ?

Reseat your 6 pin connectors on the video card. Or change out the modular plugs that plug into the PS that go to the card..

The video card has been physically removed from the system, or a driver upgrade for the video card has occurred. The application should destroy and recreate the device. For help debugging the problem, call ID3D10Device::GetDeviceRemovedReason.

How to fix is another issue though.

May be a power-related problem.

Look up "eVGA OC Scanner" and run that to verify your card is ok. I was getting similar errors with each of my eVGA 670's; turns out both were bad and I had to RMA.
