ntoskrnl.exe Related BSOD while running FSX

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon guys,


Recently I've been getting a BSOD that is tied to the ntoskrnl.exe file. I've searched for fixes on Google, however, none of the people who had this problem had it while playing FSX. I know that it is a memory related issue but I've been running FSX for almost a year now with few blue screens.


The only thing I can blame for the increase of the blue screens, (since I can fly one flight but then get a blue screen on the next), is that I installed REX last week. The blue screens will almost always occur when I'm switching views too and never in just the cockpit with no camera movement. Is there any way to reduce the amount of BSODs without removing REX? Since I know people with far worse computers than mine are able to run REX without any problem.


Upon research of the ntoskrnl.exe related BSODs, I installed BlueScreenViewer and here's the info on yesterday's BSOD...

You have a hardware related problem and nothing to do with software or FSX.  Have you ran the memory diagnostic program?  Click the Start button and in the search box type Memory and then look up in the menu and click on Windows Memory Diagnostic.  The program is not the best memory diagnostic program but it might give you an immediate diagnostic if there is something wrong with your system memory. Most of these are caused by a wrong memory configuration in the BIOS.  You need to first conduct the steps at the following link -


I was looking at your PC profile and you indicate you have a NVidia 600GT.  I cannot find that video card.  There's a 600 Series.  You also indicate you have 16GB's of video memory?  I've never heard of a video card with that much memory.  You should download and run CPU-Z for 64 bit systems -  It will provide you more information about your computer, including the name of your Motherboard. 


Hope you can get this major hardware issue fixed.


Best regards,
