This happens to me every now and then...I don't know why it does, but I shut down FSX and re-start it and that usually fixes it.

You lost the manual? http://www.precisionmanuals.com/pages/downloads/docs.html Firstly, I suggest rebuilding your cfg. before doing a reinstall, make a backup of your FSX cfg file and place it somewhere safe. Delete the original  (the one you've just made a backup from) then start FSX, it will then be back to default, which means you'll have to set your settings again. Go for a fly and see if this has helped. If not change, then do a reisntall of the NGX. Just uninstall from the standard Windows 'uninstall programs' in the control panel. Shut down the computer, reboot and then do a standard install. I cannot see your computer specifications, could you reply with them. If you continue to have the issue following a reinstall I suspect your computer may not be powerful enough. There are a few reasons for loss of texture loading, one however can simply be that when you fly to a particularly intensive are of scenery then the computer may struggle and fall over itself to actually load the 'heavy' textures associated with an aircraft such as the NGX.

I hope you haven't lost the serial key sticking in the DVD box as well ...

Kjelle, please don't take this the wrong way, but it sounds like you should do some reading.

 

C: drive\ users\ (user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX

 

Also, at the same time, delete the complete shader file (after making a backup) this can be found  C: drive\ users\ (user name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\FSX  Leave the FSX folder but delete it's contents. There should be two shader folders inside.

 

Delete it, start up FSX, then it will rebuild a new config file. Set your FSX settings and fly.

Hmm, OK, well while we wait for someone else who may have an idea, perhaps I could suggest you follow a few settings and see how you get on. If it hasn't improved then I suggest a reinstall of the NGX.

 

I think the best thing is to try and decide whether it is a CPU resource issue or whether it is something else. Try these settings and see if it has changed things. BTW, these are what I run the NGX with and I have quite a brute of a machine. I think the settings you are running are quite resource hungry for your setup.

 

Autogen at normal, Water effects Low 2x, switch off all water vehicles in both boxes, set road AI at 10%, switch off airport AI, switch off all GA AI and set airline AI to 25%. Untick, aircraft shadow on the ground, untick aircraft shadows on itself. Switch off bloom.

 

Some of the settings you have are quite frame intensive and with such a combination I suspect it may be your problem.

 

BTW, I suspect that if the gauges are completely blank and the textures have never loaded, then a reinstall is more than likely needed.

Did you use a download manager to download the NGX? If not, then it may be that you had an interrupted download, in which case some of the files may be corrupted.

 

I suggest a clean reinstall of the NGX

Hiya, OK, have you followed my suggested settings in post 14? Please do so and set your framerate at 30, do not set at unlimited!

 

As for the textures, what has happened can be normal. Although you performed an uninstall, the aircraft folder has been left behind with some of the files. If you go to the relevent PMDG 737 folder in the FSX\simobjects folder and delete any texture folder that is duplicated and then perform any action that is required to reinstall your liveries.

 

As for the freezing, if it only happens with the PMDG NGX (PLEASE CONFIRM) and you've followed my suggestions, then I'm at a loss.

 

Please add these entries to your FSX cfg file, after making a backup and report back.

 

Under display section [DISPLAY] add this value:  TextureMaxLoad=12

 

Under graphics section [GRAPHICS] add this value: HIGHMEMFIX=1

 

Under main section [MAIN] add this value: FIBER_FRAME_TIME_FRACTION=0.15

This is why I tell people to avoid uninstall/reinstall as a silver bullet "fix."

 

Since the uninstall/reinstall that you just did likely caused more problems than it had attempted to fix, let's do it again the proper way:

  1. Uninstall both the 737-600/700 and the -800/900 using the control panel menu
  2. Go into your FSX folder (usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X) and remove any of the following folders:
    In the PMDG folder, any folder with 737 in the title
    In the SimObjects folder, any folder with PMDG and 737 in the title
  3. Go into your App Data folder for FSX (usually C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\FSX) and remove any folder with PMDG and 737 in the title (you may need to show hidden files to see this)
  4. Reinstall the 737, making sure to run the installer as an administrator
  5. When you run FSX, make sure that you are also running it as an administrator.
  6. Make sure to click allow FSX to run the gauges by clicking YES, or OK to the boxes that pop up asking you if you're okay with loading the appropriate .DLLs.

Post here with the results.

You're absolutely sure you have:

  1. Installed the aircraft as an administrator?
  2. Run FSX as an administrator?
  3. Entered your registration information correctly, as directed by the boxed version?  You might not have to enter this information again if it was still in the Windows Registry, though a bad key in the registry might also be the problem (doubtful, but it could be).
  4. Your virus scanner is ignoring the FSX directory, and the FSX.exe is excluded (because virus scanners are all very different, you will have to consult your virus scanner's own documentation/website to configure this)?
