What are your system specs?

It could be an overheating problem. Advice has been given by a few knowledgeable members here before, to remove the side of the PC tower to allow cooler air to circulate. If it was an overheating problem, then this problem should go away. If it does fix the problem, then you can install a new fan which I'm told is quick, cheap and simple.

ah right thanks my fellow britt.
hopefully it will help.

my specs are:
1 gigabite of memory
64 megabite on board graphics
about 1.5 mhz or ghz (the lesser one)

Since you dont give us some specific details...for example,since when you start have this problem,or if you add something before it starts etc...According to your specs i could suggest to lower your display settings in addition to what dear Jon suggests.An on board GFX cant produce the highest performance... 😉

Before taking out your anger on your PC vendor 😀 , mind you that on-board graphics generally do not perform anywhere near as good as separate cards, especially the somewhat 'older' cards. For FS9, which - if you want to see some detail - does require a bit of power, it may very well be that onboard gfx just isn't up for it.

Also, before buying extra fans (you probably won't but just in case), ensure that your motherboard does have a powersupply connection available for the fan. 99% of the mobo's do, especially when you dont have any addded fans yet, but check just to be sure Wink. You can find the info in the usermanual if you're not confident you can find it by looking at the actual hardware.
