P3Dv4 Crash 2 DT

Recommended Posts

I've had 2 CTD's recently while flying online (one on Pilotedge and one on Vatsim).  Both were on approach, one into FSDT LAX with a PMDG 777 and one into FSDT MSP in the PMDG 737.  In both cases traffic was pretty heavy but nothing crazy.  What do I need to do to check the cause and to ensure it doesn't happen again?  I don't know how to view logs or do any technical things on the back end so any help would be appreciated.  I have done flights online (with not too much traffic) from FSDT LAS-EWR, Argentina - MIA, and other long international flights without issue.  Can someone point me in the right direction to solve this issue?  I am running ORBX vector and the other North America options.

Sounds like your video card is overheating or something.  That has happened to me on several occasions where I will be near the end of a short flight where I had accelerated the flight 4X's then Microsoft says it has to close.  The only thing I could find wrong was the fact my video card fans were not operating and the card was hot.

The AVSIM CTD Guide provides some other suggestions.  See link in my signature or on the sidebar under Hot Spots.

Best regards,
