FS2004 Doesn't start ??

Guest

Hi all !

I've got a big problem :

When I want to Start FS 2004 , I get only a Black Screen and land again onto the Desktop.

I've got a "Dell XPS M170" Laptop with a NVidia GeForce Go 6800 ULTRA integrated.

Can you help me with my problem ??

See if it starts when you "run" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\fs9.exe" -SWREND

Since I'm not a notebook user, I may have reached the end of my knowledge of them. The only question I might ask is, are your video drivers up to date?

Jup , the newest which is aviable for the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra ( It's ForceWare : 78.51 ). Do you think it is because it's a Notebook ? From the performance side , it should be OK ( See my SysProfile Here : http://www.sysprofile.de/id7497 )

Is this the first time you run FS on your system or it runs and suddenly you get this problem?
Do you have a folder named Flight simulator files in your ''My documents''?

Please be a little more specific in order trying to help you. Wink

Yes , it IS the first time. I've just installed it. I can't really give you detailed information because I don't know which one you need Wink If you need something , just ask , I'll answer.

In "My Documents" , I've got a Folder named "Flight Simulator Files", but it's empty. Although the first time I started FS , it made some things (Scenery or something similar). But after that , I only got the Black Screen.

You provide enough infos to make me thing that probably its a Graphics Card Problem.Try un-install your Graphics Card restart your system and re-install it.
Don't update anything yet.

I dont know how mush familiar you are with computers so start from this to make it sure and come back for more... Wink

I guess that you dont have problems during the installation of FS and that you run it with CD4 inserted...right?

Embarassed Well , I use a NoCD Crack ... but I also think it's something with the graphics...

I can un- and re-install my Graphic Card Wink But I don't really want to. But if I must do this , than I'll do it...

If you think it doesn't matter if it is a copy or not, you are very much mistaken. After seeing what you wrote, I am likely to be very reluctant to try and help an anonymous poster unless I am reasonably sure they are using a fully licensed (legal) version of FS

its a shame when people use copies like this because at the end of the day it means that we have to end up paying more because companies charge more due to piracy!!
