Monitor Shuts Off During FSX

Recommended Posts

Sometimes when using FSX on my Dell XPS Gen 4 the monitor will shut off. The sound of the game continues, but the monitor won't turn back on. I have to reboot to get video back. I have an 8800 GT video card. How can I fix this?

If you double-tap "1" when responding to ATC while in flight, you may have accidentally requested a new IFR flight plan. If you do this, the sim goes black while the Flight Planner loads up. If it takes a significant time for the Flight Planner to load, you will hear aircraft sounds while the screen goes black. Still, it shouldn't take very long for the Flight Planner to load up.Jeff ShylukAssistant Managing EditorSenior Staff ReviewerAVSIM
