  1. 1) Reset your BIOS first 2) Reinstall Windows if that fails Have you ever run any de bloat software or performed any windows tweaks etc?
  2. Just some info I have posted on other threads that I will condense into one post on here and hope it can help some people, would be good to make this into one big troubleshooting guide so if anyone has any suggestions etc I can add them in... Windows: 1) On Windows Search, Type in Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Applications Logs. Look for a Red exclamation mark around the time of the crash and look at the faulting module name and the exception code, copy or post it here and will help to see the cause. nvwqf2um.dll - Try a clean install of the graphics card driver using DDU, and create your own driver using NVcleanstall and see if that helps. ucrtbase.dll - Ensure all visual is fully up to date - https://github.com/abbodi1406/vcredist 2) Open CMD as administrator, paste this command and press enter and wait for it to finish sfc /scannow DISM /Online /Cleanup Image /CheckHealth DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth sfc /scannow Reboot your computer, run it again, and reboot. 3) Ensure Windows is fully up to date 4) Ensure you have the latest gaming services from Microsoft Store App > Library > Check For Updates 5) Open Disk Cleanup as Administrator, select your main drive, and tick every box to clean up, you can do this for all drives on the computer. Finally restart your computer. 6) Run Storage Sense and remove Temporary Files 7) Disable High Precision Event Timer 8 ) Set Virtual Memory to 32GB Windows Apps/Services/Drivers to check: 1) Don't use Process Lasso, personally not worth it and is known to cause issues 2) Remove the RealTek Audio Driver (You can go to Device Manager and disable it to see if you need it or not) if your sound still works when disabled, you can uninstall it as it's known to causes issues Nvidia Drivers: 1) Try a clean install of the latest Nvidia Driver. Sometimes they just need to be reinstalled and that helps fix issues. Preferable to download the latest Nvidia driver for your card from the offfical website, then use NvCleanstall to remove all the unnecessary stuff and build your own package. Disconnect your internet and boot into safe mode, run Display Driver Uninstaller to remove all the old drivers, click Clean & Restart and then once your computer has rebooted, you can install your driver that you built earlier. MSFS Files: 1) Delete the content.xml and .dat files located here: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4408886545938-How-to-restore-the-sim-to-its-vanilla-state-to-get-back-in-game Microsoft Store/Game Pass version C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache Steam version C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator Retail boxed version C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\MSFSPackages 2) Another thing is delete everything in the SceneryIndexes folder: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017133940-How-to-install-a-new-update-safely Microsoft Store/Game Pass version C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\SceneryIndexes Steam version C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\SceneryIndexes Retail boxed version C:\Users\YourUsername\AppData\Local\MSFSPackages\SceneryIndexes More help here: https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4412295717650-Read-first-Windows-10-11-troubleshooting https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4406280399250-Basic-Troubleshooting-How-to-troubleshoot-crashing-CTDs-issues- https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4406280653202-Advanced-Troubleshooting-How-to-troubleshoot-crashing-CTDs-issues Other: 1) This webpage is helpful to go through some stuff - https://www.flightsimulator.blog/2023/10/25/performance-boost-tricks/ 2) Try MSFS in Safe Mode, if it doesn't crash, the issue is not likely to be with MSFS itself but the OS / Hardware 3) If using MSI Afterburner, try switching to default settings for your graphics card for a bit 4) Backup your BIOS settings, and turn off any RAM / CPU / XMP overlocking and try
  3. @sniper31 Sorry I haven't read the entire thread, but when you go to the Event Viewer on Windows and look at the error, what is the exception code you are getting?
  4. All very salty this. I have opinions but all I want to say is that I love PMDG and Fenix for the quality they produce for us who enjoy MSFS. They both have slightly different ways of going about their business with regards to communication, I see neither as wrong or right.
  5. Switched to Wordpad instead of NotePad++, restarted the sim and its working. Thanks!
  6. I cant seem to get it to work, must be doing something wrong. I've dropped the 3 files into the /Content folder where FlightSimulator.exe is, but regardless of live / toggle or what I set coefficients too, nothing changes? EDIT: This is probably my fix, trying now:
  7. Thank you, never thought to look in there, doh!
  8. Ok, so I haven't been following this thread and do apologise in advance for asking, is there a guide for this?
  9. It will be when it will be. You can't win with some people, don't want to put words in Aamir's mouth but if it does get delayed, big deal, it will arrive when it arrives and it will be good. I think some people literally have nothing else to do but find something to complain about.
  10. GSX can't crash MSFS, GSX crashes as a result of MSFS crashing.
  11. Lovely! Glad you're having some positive results.
  12. I'd try the BIOS reset, if that doesn't work, then definitely seems likely a hardware fault, probably just your RAM, either way, keep us informed and hope you get it fixed!
  13. Ouch thats a big problem! Ok two things: 1) Reset your BIOS to defaults, this will clear any potential CPU/RAM misconfigurations etc. 2) Ensure nothing is overheating (specifically the CPU) on HWINFO. Failing that, check both/all RAM sticks and ensure they are exactly the same, same numbers, same version, same voltage etc on the sticker
