Temporary Black Screen

Recommended Posts

Hello All

I've encountered an issue I've never seen before in FSX.  I go to the menu bar, instruments dropdown and select an instrument, such as Reality XP, ASN weather gauge or an A2A mini control panel.  The gauges appear.  But when I click on the gauges to move them, the entire screen goes black for a few seconds and then comes back on, with no subsequent problems with the instruments.  It doesn't happen with all instrument panels and sometimes does not occur at all.  The sim runs fine, but it's very irritating to have blackouts with new instrument windows.  I have W7 Ultimate and have inserted the .dll file to correct menu bar crashes.   Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Forever indebted to the late Michael Greenblatt of FSGS.

Make sure you don't have the dreaded video driver bug that has been around for years. The screen goes black for a few seconds and then the video driver recovers. You usually get a small box at the bottom of the screen saying the video driver stopped responding but if you are in FSX you might not get that. if that is it there is no cure I am aware of.
