P3D Startup Menu Crashing with Onboard Graphics

Recommended Posts

Hiyah, I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this issue i have with P3D.


Basically P3D was working fine until i connected my second monitor - I had to change a setting in my bios for it work and it enabled my onboard graphics which I had disabled by default. So then when i got my second monitor working i went to play P3D and it loaded up the scenario creator screen, and then it just froze, and after a few seconds it just closed with no error message or anything.


So I instantly thought that it was because of the onboard graphics so, i went to my display adapters and disabled my oboard intel graphics but then it killed my second monitor. It did however alllow me play P3D perfectly fine without any issues but the main reason i purchased a second monitor, is to be able to view charts/ofp's, etc. whilst flying without having to alt-tab


I managed to bypass it a little; I just disabled my onboard graphics, launched P3D and when i got to the scenario screen, it didnt crash, so then i clicked fly now or whatever its called, and it worked fine, and then i enabled my onboard graphics - which enabled my 2nd monitor and it was all fun & games, and i got like 30fps which is pretty much the same what i was getting before i got the 2nd monitor, so i think that rules out P3D selecting my onboard graphics over my GPU.


But still, this is a slight pain to do every single time, plus if you ever want to change airport or plane - it will just crash at the scenario creator screen and you have to start P3D all over again.

If anyone knows how to fix this, I'd be very greatful!
