FSX crashes when dragging any window to VGA monitor

Recommended Posts

Hope someone can help me out. I'm running FSX with SP2 on a Windows 7 machine with five monitors configured as follows:

 

GTX 660 graphics card

monitor 1 dvi 1920x1080x32

monitor 2 dvi 1920x1080x32

monitor 3 vga/dvi 1920x1080x32

 

GT 520 graphics card

monitor 4 vga   1024x768x32

monitor 5 hdmi 1920x1080x32

 

My problem is any time I undock a window and move it to monitor 4 FSX crashes to the desktop. I can move undocked windows to any of the other monitors just fine. I can also move an undocked window to monitor 4 in P3D and it works.

 

In FSX if I try to go full screen with ALT-Enter I get a crash to desktop.

 

Monitor 4 is set to 1024x768x32 in Windows resolution and in FSX settings.

 

My fsx.cfg has the following entries for displays:

 

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 .0]
Mode=1920x1080x32
TriLinear=1

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 .1]
Mode=1920x1080x32
TriLinear=1

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 .2]
Mode=1920x1080x32
TriLinear=1

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 .3]
Mode=1920x1080x32

[DISPLAY.Device.NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 .4]
Mode=1024x768x32

 

I've tried changing the fsx.cfg for the GT 520 to different settings with no luck. I also deleted the fsx.cfg and let a new one be created but it also crashes with the new fsx.cfg.

 

I would sure appreciate any ideas and/or help on how to fix this. I want to use monitor 4 for my instrument gauges.

 

Thanks in advance.

Let me move this to the Hardware Forum where we have members who are experts with graphic cards/monitors.   The cause of your crashes is the way the monitors are set up.  Gauges take up a lot of resources and perhaps they do not like to be located on separate monitors.  I have two monitors and moved a gauge over to it and it worked okay until I tried to move it or resize it.  Then the system went black and I had to do a Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the Task Manager to shut FSX down.  I think it can be done as I have seen it but how is not my expertise.

 

Best regards,
