FSX freezing repeatedly/lagging

Recommended Posts

Hello, been using FSX for a few years now and keep having the odd problem with it, but usually managing to fix it. This time, i'm having to post a question of my own because I can't find a solution elsewhere.

As far as I know, this hapens with any aircraft, in any location. What happens is that whilst running the sim, whether taxiing or flying or whatever, it keeps freezing completely for a few seconds at a time, then it all continues again. The only thing I can think of to compare it to is like a video stopping to buffer. (I'm not saying that's the cause, it's just a comparison). Any ideas?

 

PC specs:

Windows 7 64bit

Intel i7-3930k CPU

16.0GB RAM

Nvidia GeForce GTX 650Ti GPU

 

Running FSX with Acceleration

 

In case it makes a difference; i use REX essential plus with overdrive, and UK2000 Heathrow scenery, but i've used these for a while with no problems, so I don't think it's that.

 

Also, if i open a second view window (picture in picture style), I get some very odd wall-like textures glitching about on the second view window, which is another issue I'm having.

 

Thanks

 

 

EDIT: After a bit of playing around with settings, i've fixed the issue now. In case anyone else gets this issue, mine was fixable by removing the framerate limit on Nvidia inspector.

Thanks for posting your solution. Might work for many others having unexplained freezes as I think a lot of people use an external frame rate limiter like on the NI config.

 

Best regards,
