  1. Thanks a lot Geoff. I just read your response and will definitely look into it. That is the most promising response yet. Every once in a while I think I have this whipped. Last night I was fiddling with the catalyst controls that control 3D settings and when I went back to fs9 I had a long period with no stutter then for no reason at all it started again. I know this thing will work with my computer. I will hope the RadeonPro will work well for me. Thanks again ksan
  2. Thanks again to all who responded. I have DirectX v9 which shows accelerators are enabled but has no access to any user controls from which I can turn them down as suggested in the sound troubleshooting section of fs9. Are these accelerators associated with the video display adaptor? I have tried disabling the sound card and running is diagnostic mode, disabled startup programs one at a time and restarting, I have also tried cutting back on services, and eliminated all other games installed on the computer. When I tried monitoring system performance I did notice when I fired up fs9 it was using 100 percent of the cpu. The one thing I don't understand is why everything else works so well even with all the settings cranked up to the max. Even with a ton of addon scenery both downloaded and produced by myself using gmax scenery design. The flight instruction sound works great..."You failed another checkride...come back and try again!" Anyway I guess my only hope is to buy more memory. By the way, anyone know is the sound files for ATC instruction is in the same WAV format as the other aircraft sounds and if not where I can locate them and maybe fix them at their source?? Thanks ksan
  3. Yea, thanks folks...I have tried cranking all the settings to minimuim levels. Didn't think of the desktop. I will give it a try. There seems to be a lot of people with the problem. I am also looking into the memory thing. The funny thing is everything else works well even with the settings on the highest settings. If nothing else works I think I will just record some generic atc chatter on my voice recorder and let it run while I fly. .Thanks again for your responses ksan1.
  4. Hi, I have a problem with stuttering with both the atc and pilot voice. I have tried disabling the sound card, and no joy. My sound cards are up to date and I have not experienced any other sound problems. The engine sounds, etc are fine. The instructional voices are good. DirectX says everything ok. I don't know how to adjust/shut down the "accelerators"??. I recently did a system restore and virus/malware scan and have all the latest Windows updates. I tested the sound and have the same problem even with FS9 being the only installed software (aside from what came with the factory). I have re-installed fs9 several times with the same problem (yes I purchased the discs). I have also lowered the various settings to minimum and lowered framerate but to joy there. I love to fly (former CFII with medical limitations which makes FS9 a godsend). The interactive ATC system is great and if I could just get the stutter to stop I would love it. Many thanks to anyone with some good Ideas. KSAN1. specs: Acer Aspire 5251 (notebook), AMD processor, V120 (2.2GHz), ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics up to 893 MB Hyper-Memory, 2 GB Memory, 250 GB HDD, Windows 7 64 bit home premium, Realtek HDMI Audio Card, I have tried other fs9 forums with not much luck. I also know many others have had the same problem. Please help. thanks Ksan1. I will attach a .wav file I recorded with a simple voice recorder to give some indication of the problem.. oops I received a warning that I can't attach that file..sorry. The best I can describe the problem is.."Montgomery ground da da da da Cessna dadadada, taxi dddaaaaa, etc)
