FSX crashing

Recommended Posts

After my hard drive and motherboard failed I have just upgraded my computer, I am now experiencing crashes, when windows restarts it tells me it was an Nvidia graphics problem. What happens is I am flying ok then the screen freezes, most times the computer restarts on its own, occasionally I have to turn it off.I have downloaded what looks to be a newer graphics driver but when I go to update it through device manager it says I already have the most upto date version installed!!Any help would be greatly appreciated.My system is as followsInno3d Nvidia Geoforce9800GT (driver version 7.15.11.8206)ECS Elitegoup GF8100VM-M3 motherboardAMD Athlon 64 x 2 5600+ 2.8GHZ4gb ram600gb hard driveWindows Home Premium 32 bitMicrosoft FSX (Acceleration) VFR Real Scenery for FSX volumes 1 and 4

I think the 182.06 is the newest certified driver. No need to install through device manager as drivers (from Nvidia at least) come with an installer. You might consider uninstalling them, run a driver cleaner, run a registry cleaner, and reinstall drivers. You might have to go to an older driver.Bob

Thanks for the info Bob.Would I need to lower my screen resolution before removing the drivers? Also can you point me in the right direction for older drivers? I can only see the latest on Nvidias web site.CheersLes

It may very well be a video issue but have you run orthos and memtest to ensure that your memory/cpu are not the cause of your crashes?I've been fooled in the past thinking I had video issues only to find that I had memory issues and getting clean memtest runs resolved my FSX crashes.I would highly recommend making sure your memory runs clean before going down any other path.
