I have not yet installed any add-on packages to the game, and I haveonly been running at default. I am getting poor fps performance. I have beengetting anywhere from 8 fps to 17 fps where the locked fps has been set at 30. The screen appears to be jerky and not very stable. I wasgetting much better performance for FSX Acceleration using Vista SP1. Does anyone have any suggestions about what I can do to getbetter performance, so that I can enjoy virtual aviation again? Thank you in advance.

IMHO a laptop is not really a suitable for FSX. Sure there are some laptops that are "Desktop Replacements" but they are made more for mobility rather than performance.My two cents...

oo.... no... oh... ow. Great Printers though.:Tounge:Seriously though--go through the NickN setup--the ******* tweaks and be prepared to not run sliders all to the right. Some of your gear is better than mine and I run great.Take your time and try different approaches. Took me a couple of years to get it the way I want.
