Using the latest driver from NVidia? That happened to me for any full screen directX game (so FSX, Rise of Flight, etc...) on my 180.x drivers and went away when I updated to the 190.x whql drivers this month. If you haven't tried that, I'd recommend.

its the matrox software. disable the matrox service and kill the TSR's through task manager and then try it. The gxm service in the matrox software wreaks havoc on certain games for me as well.

thanks J0nx, that worked! Tho I'm getting horrible frame rate with directX compared to classic. I'll have to play around with it.

How do you do that? I keep on getting Fatal errors!
