Night light problems

Recommended Posts

Check these 2 screenshots:http://www.maj.com/gallery/lmhariano/PC-Gl...t_problem_1.bmphttp://www.maj.com/gallery/lmhariano/PC-Gl...t_problem_2.bmpYou can see over the tarmac some (well.. lots of) greenish "double arrows" in a grid pattern. They only appear over the tarmac at night: during daytime, no problem; at night, no problem on the runway or on the air.I've been having this problem since some time ago, and because of that, I stopped flying at night. Does anybody know what may be the cause of the problem? Thanks in advance.Best regards from ColombiaLuis MiguelPS: My system is a 1.6 GHz Pentium 4 (the older ones) with 1 GB RAM, onboard sound and a 256 MB eVGA GeForce FX5500 with 93.71 drivers.Edit: I also uploaded my FS9.cfg, just in case someone wants to take a look at it.

Well, I remember having the problem since I installed and configured my video card. Before that, I had an ATI Radeon 7500, which had also the same behavior... but now that I remember, I started to see that problem when I started to change its settings. Before that, I can't remember seeing the issue.Another thing that I've noticed: the problem happens only with the airport lights (the high white ones monted on poles that illuminate the parking spots... I don't know how to say it in English). For some strange reason, it doesn't happen with the aircraft's taxi or landing lights.Best regards from ColombiaLuis Miguel

It looks to be your video card. It also looks like an onboard video card, I remember many years ago seeing stuff like that.Dude, video cards wear out.Could be the processor, you never know. Could be MB, but the vid card is suspect.You should upgrade your computer to a P4 2.4 minimum. Get to Ebay, and look at some of the DELL stuff that goes for 100.00 or so, or get bare bones and build with spare parts. Computers are not all that expensive anymore.Northwood cores run cooler than Prescott for gaming, something to keep in mind.
