    Probably yet another "will my PC run..."

    It seems that I may not fully understand my CPU. I ran CPU-Z and while it did report that my CPU was an i7-4720HQ @ 2.60Hz. the core speed was showing as 3591.43MHz. I know they are two different applications, but back when I was playing GTA V on the laptop, it ran very smoothly, even with settings set rather high across the board for it. Never used a frame rate counter and it ran smooth, My FSX, I have locked at 30fps and hit that easily and if I remove that, the frame rates are rather high. I will probably go ahead and buy it, the worst that happens is that I would be encouraged to buy a new laptop if the performance is not that good. I've had this once since 2015.

    Thank you for the detailed information Ryan.

    Actually I do not, if I did, I would not have posted my question. But thanks for trying Nyxx.
  4. So this is probably yet another "will my PC run P3D v4" topic. I have a Gigabyte P37 laptop with an i7 4720HQ CPU running at 2.60GHz with 16GB RAM and a nVidia GTX 970M GPU with 6GB video RAM. My OS, Windows 10, is on a SSD drive and right now I have FSX on a standard laptop drive, but my laptop does have the ability to remove the optical drive, which I never use and install another drive in that bay, which if I do, would be another SSD drive. As of now with mt FSX setup I do not have any add-on aircraft, that is not my thing. Rather I focus on AI setup, with a focus on traffic that makes ports of call in Australia and New Zealand. I do have various ORBX packages, scenery and airport, installed as well as my home airport, Fly Tampa's Sydney package. AI wise I have models from FAIB, TFS, AIG and a few stragglers from AIA and some others. With this basic description of my laptop and current FSX setup, what would I expect to see if I setup P3dv4? I have been toying with the idea of a new laptop (I do not have the space for a desktop) but if I could save a few $$$ and keep on using my laptop, I'd prefer that.
  5. Anybody know where I can find a Qantaslink repaint for the Dreamwings Dash 8-200? I cannot seem to find one. Thanks

    Tracking down Windows 7 BSODs

    Well I believe that my issue has been resolved. Ever since updating my drivers with the help of SlimDrivers Free, my PC has been stable and no crashes. It has been almost two full days now without a BSOD and reboot. Now that I said that, I'll probably have one later today. :lol:

    Tracking down Windows 7 BSODs

    Well I ran MemTest86+ overnight and it came back with no memory errors (was kind of hoping that it did as that would give me a good excuse to buy new RAM and upgrade to 32GB). I installed the SlimDrivers Free and it found 17 drivers that had to be updated, from the onboard audio to storage drivers to chipset drivers. I installed those this morning before leaving for work. Now it is just the waiting game, wait and see what happens now.

    Tracking down Windows 7 BSODs

    Thanks. That is odd, I ran the built in Windows tool (Windows Memory Diagnostic) and it came back clean. I'll run MemTest86+ instead. And I will run that Driver Scanner program and see what it comes back with. Strike that, instead of Driver Scanner (the reviews for it looked awful), I am going to use a program called SlimDrivers Free.

    Tracking down Windows 7 BSODs

    Thanks, here is the information and a screenshot The Bug Check String is PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA The Bug Check Code is 0x00000050
  10. Wondering if there is a better application than Procmon that can help me track down BSODs that I have been suffering through? The BSODs happen either right after I have logged into computer and the W7 desktop is loading. Or sometimes when the computer is idle, it will BSOD and rebootl. I have ran diags on my memory and hard drives and they are OK. I did a little Googling and saw some people have this same problem and I tried what they did to fix the problem. Uninstall the video drivers, reboot into Safe Mode and run Guru3D - Driver Sweeper to clean out the leftovers of the uninstalled driver and then reboot back into the normal W7 OS and reinstall the video drivers. I just did that late last night and I have yet to do any testing to see if this solved my problems or not. But just in case, I am wondering if there was something easier/better than Procmon. W7 x64, fully patched 16GB RAM i7 3.4ghz 2600k processor, not overclocked and liquid cooled 2x AMD 6750 1GB GPUs (latest drivers installed) 2TB drive (OS and apps installed on there) 1TB drive with a 250GB partition dedicated to FSX only, remaining portion dedicated to my music collection

I cannot wait to see the flood of files from those two when AVSIM's file library gets back online. They must have gigs ready to upload by now.
  12. A little sarcasm about the never ending flood of the Chile scenery.You might be seeing IE's wonderful security features in use. When you try to download with IE, do you get the little yellow bar at the top of the screen that says "To help protect....." If so, if you click that bar and choose 'Download File' does anything happen? I just downloaded a file no problem with IE6, and I had to do the above to download the file.
  13. It was probably due to the never ending mega upload flood of the FSX Realistic Chile Photoreal Scenery and the hoards of people downloading it. :-roll
  14. The files were removed when an updated model was released. Search for the file djc_a318.zip which is the new model. Make sure to read the included documentation as you will need to do some file renaming to make the textures work with the new version of the model.

    How to determine nHancer settings?

    I reduced my AA Combined 8XS setting to Combined 4XS and am seeing better performance. I might try lowering my AF to 8X and then 4X to see if it helps anymore.
