Make sure you have all the Windows updates, defrag and give us your system specs.

thanks for all the advice guys, but none if it is working. i am so fed up with this game. i might just go out and get fs 2004 and see how that works for me.

Have you installed and updated the FSX SDK? I was having a problem VERY similar as yours and when I did that it started working fine. Ever since I have been reatively problem free.

Open up disc 2 and there is a SDK install folder in there. Install it and then go to the official FSX web site and update it through their patch.

Dang, I'm sorry, I just checked and it's on the first disc.

Also it looks like you can't download the patch unless you can load the title screen of FSX. Then you just go to downloads and find the one that mentions the SDK.
