FS9 won't switch into graphics mode, it just starts with the opening screen, then bounces me back to windows. Brand new install of a brand new (legal) fs9, on a clean freshly defraged hard drive. program installs without issues, but won't boot. same disks installed on another machine works fine (but not my favorite machine.
ASUS A8N SLI Preimum
2 GB Corsair memory
2 TB hard drives
nVidia Geforce 6800 with the latest drivers
This machine runs every other program that I load (including Half Life 2, TIger Woods PGA, Battlefield 2) anything.
I'm lost and would appriciate any help you can give me. thx in advance.
There is a compatibility problem with the IE7 Beta - are you running that?
There's also a workround, but someone else will need to point you in the right direction. But it is a common problem, and there is a solution.
I should mention that I've gone thru all of microsoft's recommendations to no avail (ie. checked directx, checked my documents folder etc etc). Also i've unistalled and reinstalled it over 4 times, and also my video drivers, using driver cleaning inbetween. Everything.
BTW - when i use the congif file from the other computer (with a much cheaper graphic card FX 5500), i can actuall boot into fs9 and fly, but i can't use the lessons or anything else. i know it sounds ok, but i'd like to take advantage of my more expensive cards capabilities.
thx again for any help.
I am running the IE7 beta. I'll check that out now. THANK YOU.
