Computer Freezes with Dash 7 Panel

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have noticed that around 2 mintues of use of the new gmax dash 7 plane, that the panel that is comes with freezes my computer. Has anyone else eperience this problem. It seems to do it with only that panel because I changed the panel to a DC-8 panel and it did not freeze. Is there anything that I could do? Is there a fix for this? I have about 50+ panels install on my computer with no problems.Thanks,Bill

The fix for this that apparently works is to reinstall all the gauges. For some reason that works for many. Now my problem is with the 9700 card. Everything works beautifully in FS2002 except the Dash 7. Changed panels, removed all the gauges, changed sounds, to no avail. The Dash7 locks the computer as soon as I select it from the menu. Milton sure produced a beautiful airplane. It works fine for 99% of the folks. It works great in my old PIII800 with the GTS64 card. Maybe someone will figure out the 9700 problem sooner or later.

First, try mgdbottled's method above. If that doesn't work, try deleting (or move it to another fodler for backup purposes) your FS2002.cfg file in your MAIN FS2k2 directory. FS2k2 will build a new one on its next startup. All you have to do is re-configure all of your settings (Realism, display, ATC, etc.) This has been known to solve a lot of problems with third-party software.Ryan-Flightpro08 :-coolVATSIM Pilot/ControllerZLA ARTCC Controller 1 (C-1)SAN TRACON Lead [link:www.taxiwaysigns.com]Taxiwaysigns.com Scenery Designer-----------------------------My "Home Made" System Specs:Intel Pentium 4 2.2GHz ProcessorTurbo Gamer ATX Mid-Tower with 420W Power SupplyEPoX 4G4A Motherboard with Intel 845G ChipsetVisiontek XTASY GeForce4 128MB Ti4600 (Det 29.42 WHQL Drivers)512MB PC2100 DDR RAM40GB Matrox 7200RPM Hard DriveWindows XP Home Edition SP1*No CPU or GPU Overclocking*3dMark2001SE Score: 11298

Hi Bill,Sorry you are having problems. :-/The problem you describe seems common among a few XP users and probably relates to the unzip process and the multi-gauge cab file.If you can, reload the gauges to the FS2002/Gauge folder ensuring all contents go in as is.The second thing to look for is the (OldModules) section in the FS2002.cfg file. If you do not have it, then do the following:Add section with brackets, not parentheses:(OldModules)FSSound.dll=1One of these two solutions should fix you up.Kind RegardsMilton
