I've got a sapphire radeon hd 7850 1Gb OC edition. The display from the card keeps turning off intermittently. To get it back, i have to reseat the card everytime. If i don't the monitor just keeps switching between analong and digital modes and nothing is displayed. I've got the latest drivers from AMD (non-beta) and i haven't overclocked the card. Any ideas on what could be wrong and/or a solution?
So far I've only seen this problem occur when I restart the computer after leaving it of for a long period of time, about 6 hours or more.

Thanks in advance

I always clean using an eraser before reseating the card.
