Multi Monitor Crashes in FSX

Recommended Posts

Anyone having trouble with crashes in multi-monitor mode? The last three weeks I've been having troubles with the sim crashing and restarting te computer. I've run Memtest on the system memory - not a problem there. I've reinstalled the drivers for the card and reinstalled FSX. Still the same problem. Not having this with any other programs - FS9 included. Any thoughts on trouble shooting? Here's my system.AMD 6000+ dual coreAnsus board2 gigs of system memoryNvidia 7950 GTWin XP homeThanks.

Hi Colin,A few questions ahead. How long did you run Memtest?. What Nvidia driver version are you running?, and is your system OCed or not?. Also have you run filemon yet? To track down what the last accessed file was before the crash.

Memtest cranked for about 1.2 hours - 1 pass. Does it need more? No OC. Latest Nvidia Drivers. No filmon yet - don't have it. Will get it thoug. Thanks for that suggestion. Colni

>Memtest cranked for about 1.2 hoursDoesn't hurt to run memtest for a looong time - perhaps overnight sometime - just start it up, go to bed and see if it's still fine in the morning! I once had some bad RAM which caused crashes only once every week or so and that passed memtest for 3 hours before the 1st problem...Geoff

Well 1.2h, isn't nearly long enough to give a reliable result. Run it for atleast 10h to 12h. If you've cleared that without errors, let me know what filemon comes up with.
