Maybe try lowering your settings in FSX. Traffic , graphics,etc.I have Booster and Fiber Accelerator and it really helps.

Sounds more like a hardware lockup issue. Overheating or bad bios settings perhaps. Also, try running FSX in Win7 compatibility mode with Run as Admin set.

Right click on Taskbar > Start Task Manager > Select Microsoft Flight Simulator X > End Task.

PS: compatibility mode seems to have fixed it indeed. Lucky me.- Any ideas on AA? I've set in Nvidia settings to enhance AA but am still not

very happy with the result.

 

 

 

 

yes sure I know how to use task manager. The problem is that it hides or whatever behind fsx. fsx fills the whole screen and I only can reboot. I cannot click anything in task manager but reboot. Sigh this obsolete cra* proprietary stuff. As soon as I can run perfectly fsx on wine I'll trash win8.

 

No overheating after only 2-3 minutes...I'll try compatibility mode now.
