DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG solution

Recommended Posts

@Afterburner, I hope you're right. I've just departed Shanghai enroute to Tokyo. 1100nm and my longest yet. Hopefully successful.

Longest flight yet today. 3h 30m from Istanbul to Madrid. Solid as a rock. 33 flights since 1 Jan and not a hint of a problem. I'm thinking of changing the topic title from possible to probable but I don't want to tempt fate just yet. 😁

39 flights with two different aircraft over 37 days and not a single issue with DXGI.

The Registry entries are still present. This appears to have solved my problems. If you're still having the DXGI problem try what I did. If it has worked for me it should for you.

But you had the DXGI error once with the registry entries before updating the GPU drivers, so how can you tell what have solved your problems?

Updating the driver using NVCleanstall seems to have fixed it. That’s the only change.

Didn't you want to remove the registry entry starting February 1st to find out if the DXGI error still occurs?

I’ve thought about it but decided to remain with the status quo. I’m selling the PC in the next month or two so stability is important.

That's exciting!  But wouldn't it be a good idea to wait until P3Dv6 and the new Concorde are released, so that you get an idea about the hardware requirements?

That's why I said the next month or two. My buyer is flexible and patient I've been waiting for both to be released. The wait is endless for Concorde. But I don't want to have to install P3Dv3 and the 32-bit Concorde on a new PC. Hence the wait.

I'm getting a i9-13900K / 4090 so future-proofing as much as possible. As to whether I get v6 is very dependent on developers for SimStarterNG and ChasePlane and whether they continue to support the latest version.

I haven't had P3Dv3 and Concorde-X installed since 2020, as I have also been waiting for the new one.

However, I know that you use Andrew's statement about the release before Q1 this year as an orientation point for your hardware purchase, but given that there are less than two months to go, I am skeptical as to whether the product will be released on time in light of the fact that we haven't seen any new screenshots and that we haven't heard anything about beta testing yet. I hope to be proven wrong, but we have lived long enough to know that any information concerning the release time of products by FS-Labs (and many other companies) is very unreliable.

I don't want to bring your excitement down, but I'm just saying that caution should be exercised when it comes to any announced releases.

@Afterburner, I don’t disagree with anything you’ve said. The lack of more screenshots is disappointing. It’s hardly a time consuming exercise.

I paid careful attention to their wording for a Q1 release. A hope rather than a definitive date. I believe it’s in beta but nothing will be said publicly by the testers so we continue to remain in the dark.

I’m well used to being disappointed by FS’s lack of info.

I changed something today and it's significant.

For the last year or more I have been unable to run RTSS / AfterBurner as it would crash P3D within a minute or two with the DXGI Hung error.

So today given how stable P3D has been I ran them and for the first time in a very long time I've been able to finish an admittedly short flight without P3D crashing. I'll keep RTSS running for all future flights.

You’re asking me to remember a long way back. I can’t be sure.

If someone else gave up with RTSS then try what I’ve done and report back. Uninstall in safe mode using DDU and then use NVCleanstall to install just the driver.

Ray, I would like to extend gratitude for this fix. It really means a lot to me, because lately I had issue with that DXGI error. This really bypassed things and helped me. Thank you, again.
