Recommended Posts

Guest Hilly

Hey guysRecently when i start fsx i fly for about 20 minuets and then the screen goes blank and a 'no signal' message comes on the screen, it happens on all games on the pc.I have a harddrive with just fsx in it, its 400 gb is size, however it is telling me it has 378 gb worth of software inside when there is only about 30 gb!!!I have emptied the hardrive completly however it still says there is 378gb of infomation in there!! I have tried formatting the drive, however it will not let me as it says there are other applications using the drive, when there arent!!! I think this is the problem, and probably a virus.Does anyone have any help to ooffer, i would be sooo greatful!!Thanks in advanceTom Hill

Tom,The 'no signal' that comes on the screen sounds like it could be related to your graphics card/interface, at a guess. Is your computer actually switched on when it comes up or does the message appear when the computer goes off?I get the 'no signal' message on my screen when I turn off the computer with the monitor still powered, before it goes into standby. I get the same message at work when I turn the monitor on but not the computer.Regards, Adam.

Adam,Is this a new hard drive that you added to the PC yourself?Do any "beeps" come out of your speakers when problem happens or when pc is turned on?Have you recently unplugged your monitor(s)?

Do you have the enb mode installed? I was having very peculiar problems-some similar, and once I removed this they seem to have gone away.

Here is a site which shows compares of using it and not.http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,694567/...-look/Practice/I found it made clouds look much better and a few other things but am fairly convinced it was the culprit in crashes I was getting with fsx.
