memory dump and restart

I have been getting a problem with fsx for a while now where I can be flying for a while and then for no reason the pc will restart automaticly, but not before going to a blue screen and i think it is doing a memory dump. I have an nvidia en8600gt 512m card and 2gb of ddr400 ram and duel core 3.4 cpu. Can anyone explain to me why this may be happening. It only happens in fsx. 😕

Could you tell us the exact message or post a screenshot of it.

That can come a few ways, overheating or an insufficient power supply come to mind.

Yes just 2 weeks back I was facing the same problem and RM suggested me overheating. I did not get a blue screen though but what I got was an spontaneous reboot anytime ingame!

I only had to open the cabinet and clean the dust layer accumulated on the processor fan and inside the cabinet/harddisk and power supply fan. Its a lot better now-trust me.

Also you could download somethin like a pc wizard or a speed fan (free download) to check temperatures of various components. Note your processor temp shouldn't be anythin more than 55 deg C when FSX is running and rendering.

Also its a different ball game if you have overclocked your GFX card.

OK. I was thing along those lines but I have recently put in a 600w power supply and it hasnt made any diff. the blue screen that comes up is only there for a split second, just long enough for me to pick up that it is doing a memory dump, which would make it nearly impossible to get a screenshot. Is it possible that i am running out of ram I have 2gb ddr. Ill try to get more of what the screen says.

Get one, about $20 bucks.
Put it on the back rear grid blowing out.
Very easy to do.

If there is any way you can add one to the front also use it to blow in cool air.
If you have the front one the back is a necessity.

Nothin to do with the PC... most probably an overheating problem. I have a same config more or less except the video card which is of ATI Sapphire make.

Do as RM says
