Please mention the document class that you are using, preferably with the
entire preamble (the commands between \documentclass and \begin{document}.
I assume that you are using the report class.

\usepackage{remreset}
\makeatletter
\@removefromreset{figure}{chapter}
\def\thefigure{\@arabic\c at figure}
\makeatother
