FSX display corrupts/crashes after using menus to access Map, Replays etc

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,I'm having a problem with FSX where after an hour of flying or so, when I call up the menu and access the Map or Instant Replay or Settings etc, when I exit the menu and go back to the sim the display becomes corrupted. The cockpit vanishes and the scenery textures flash and flicker. If I press Esc I can End Flight and go back to the main FSX screen, interestingly though the preview image of the aircraft on the Free Flight screen just shows as a black box. Do you think this is a problem with my graphics card?I'm running a i920 @ 3.8ghz (core temps during Prime95 are 58c), 6Gb Ram, Asus P6T Deluxe V2, BFG GTX285 OCX card (with factory settings), and Vista 64. I'm using the 195.62 Nvidia drivers and nHancer 2.5.7Only seems to affect FSX, all other Apps and games are running fine.ThanksRob

Hi!I think that the issue you are referring to is the one that has been extensively discussed in this topic:http://forums1.avsim.net/index.php?showtopic=249782I'd say, have a look at it! There have been people saying that reducing sound quality has eliminated the issue (or at least diminished its occurrence) whereas others argue that it did not help. Personally, I did a complete reinstall of FSX and now use a 'bufferpool' setting that is much lower than the setting I had before the reinstall. I have only seen the issue once since that time. So I'd suggest you read this topic and hopefully one of the proposed solutions will help you!
