If this happens more than one times and especially when you are close to landing try to reduce your screen's resolution.

I know it's a pain but have you ever thought about saving the flight every once in a while? Mine doesn't crash but it's basiclally default except for a few payware planes.

I found out that cleaning the dust out of the heatsink etc can help your pc stay so much cooler and it stopped my fs2k4 from crashing!

That has happened to me once. It wasn't a long flight, but it was my most perfect flight I ever had, and being dead straight in line with the runway, the screen went black and the computer restarted. That's why nowadays I use the increase in simulation rate. It isn't very good coz it's unrealistic but is the only way i can reach my destination quicker. Very Happy
