Bizzare Problem - FSX failing to load if computer has been on a while

Recommended Posts



Just wondering if anyone has come across this odd problem.


I have FSX with sp1 and sp2 installed as a clean install on a brand new machine with windows 7 home premium and with everything (including drivers) fully up to date.


If I start the computer and load FSX within the first 5 minutes, all is well.  If I wait over 20 minutes say, it won't boot saying it has a fatal error.

Once fired up, it will run for hours with no problems.


The same problem does not occur with P3D, but much of my add on collection may not be compatible with P3D, so I still want FSX to be working.


Any suggestions?
