The first thing than comes to mind is hardware overheating. See if you can't check the temps on your CPU and GPU before/after this happens. If this were happening as soon as it loaded then I would recommend reinstallation (I've had this one before) but not until a couple of hours, gee... don't know what else it could be.EDIT: There is a transition between day/night in FSX that is implicated, but I don't think it is the cause.

CPU is myby the cause can not read any temps. It should be controlled automatic. But my GPU is getting controlled by ASUS SMART Doctor. That works great. Temps not getting above 65Celsius.The strange thing is, i was preparing flight to Las Vegas from London Gatwick. So a 30minute preparing and taxi before i was on cruise level (first step). And i was just inside the cockpit, so no large movements. Even my Flight Enviroment X was not changing any clouds. Well i hope to hear some more idea's our solutions our else i go for a fresh new install!Thx so far Downscc !!Regards Peter

If you do a search on disappearing textures you should find further information and some other suggested solutions. Also, have you tried hitting shift "L" to see if it corrects the problem?

Hello Falcon999,I will have a search on the suggested text: Disapearing textures. Thx for you're reply.No did not try SHIFT+L. Tomorrow i will have the same flight again. And have a look with SHIFT+Lfor now i will start searching and reading on the forum as you suggested.Regards Peter

Jose, what is the failure report info? Which module is failing, is it FSX?There is no one solution because these problems are unique to the system that is failing. There are thousands of users without the problem. Inspect your W7 trouble logs, maybe you can find a clue.

Trying hard not to give up because I can't think what else to do. I've reinstalled fsx+acceleration, (cleaned reg, deleted old fsx files before), tried with nhancer and without, updated graphic drivers, no trouble logs. I don't mind investing time looking for a solution but it I would like some help from PMDG. Managed to get the textures back by going to the menu and changing the time. Might be something there.THanksJose De Campos

You are only assured of direct pmdg support if you visit their support page at their web site and submitt a trouble ticket.What about the failure report or trouble logs??

There are no failure reports since FSX doesn't crash or freeze it's just the vc textures that go missing after a while,just as in the pics on this thread. It only happens with the pmdg md11 in my case and usually at dusk or night, andlike I said if I change the time of day the textures return.ThanksJose De Campos

usually at dusk
Sorry, I missed that. FSX is notorious at dusk/dawn transitions. I've mapped refresh textures to a key.

There is a thread in the general section with over 400 posts I think that covers a lot of missing texture territory, sorry but I'm not an expert on these things.
