instrement panel is black can't see it, but instrements are there?
When you unzipped the file the read-me probably told you to put the gauges into the main gauge folder and the aircraft into the main aircraft folder.
You didn't put the gauges where they belong, go back unzip it again and just put the gauges where they belong and dump the rest.
it is not zip files. I have just rebooted my computer and reinstall FS9 and my instrement panel is black but the instements show under black only way I can get to see the panel is to unlock the window?
Please explain "unlock window", and start your problem slowly from the beginning.
Is this the first time the sim has been loaded on your machine.
Thanks have sorted it.
It was my graf card drivers
