FSX Graphical problems (it's driving me crazy!)

Looks like a graphics card or graphics setting problem.Try adjusting sliders down to 50% and reducing frame rate for starters.If you have not changed anything since the last time you used FSX,you may have a hardware problem. If you have fans not working,either on the computer or the graphics card. It may be due to overheating or failure of the graphics card.Hope this helps.Ron

I have this same problem when I use a driver newer than Vista 169.25 or XP 169.21.Try them and I think that will fix your problem.System:Dell XPS 720 H2CIntel Quad Core Extreme QX6800 @ 3.73GHz2GB Corsair Dominator EPP 8500C5D 800MHz FSB 1066 MHz2x160GB WD SATA Raptors, Sound Blaster X-FiNvidia 2x8800GTX 768MB SLI, Dell 2407WFP PanelXP driver: 169.21, Vista driver: 169.25Logitech Z680 5.1 Speakers, G5 Mouse, Saitek X52WinXP Media Edition SP3 on C: (SATA 0)Vista SP1 on D: (SATA 1) (Dual Boot)3DMark06: 17,018/6992/7123/5667

thanks for the replies,actually thinking about it, the only thing that has changed has been the graphics card driver.Gfx glitches started with catalyst 8.8 and also 8.9 but I will open up the comp and give the fans a clean tomorrow and let you know what happens.Cheers.=)

OK, today I opened the case and gave it a good hoover, the CPU heatsink was very dusty, the graphics card not so much.Gave FSX a try and sure enough the graphically glitches reared their ugly heads again, so I un-installed the ATI Catalyst v8.9 driver and installed the Omega drivers for ATI cards and now the glitches have gone away :)Thanks for all your replies, much obliged.http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/0nn...s/me-in-il2.jpg

Now it does it with any autogen, even minimum.I have to switch off autogen just to play.
