Hellow.When i select to fly boeing 747-800 (standart version which is in fsxD) and after a short time of being in the cabin my computer reboots. When it restarts i get a win error..

It reboots only whn i'm flying boeing 747- 800. Can any one tell me the reason it reboots and how to fix problem? Thank you.

Without knowing your system specs I would guess that the aircraft might be too much (graphic intensive) for your card.

If that isn't it, you might have too much dust in the computer case and have to clean it out, paying special attention to the fans and heatsink.

Last idea, your power supply is too low in wattage to handle the machine, too many USB peripherals.

Fx-5200, AGP?

That's a very old card. You can search the 2004 general forum and see some of the posts about it.
Many users were upgrading from that and you have FSX.
They stopped making AGP so you can pick up a good one cheap.
Now PCIe is the card of choice.

300w is standard on a low end machine. If you have too many peripherals (I have 8 and a few more not plugged in) running they use power that the card and the rest of the machine need to run the Sim so it'll look good.

Standard now is 700w and many shoot for a bigger (name brand) p/s.

huh i can fly on a low settings, but not long, when flight ends or on the second flight beginning pc reboots.. Can you tell me what my geforce fx 5200 cant load or do some option maybe, which need to be shut down..maybe you can also tell me what my settings needs to be to play without rebooting?:] thank you

P.S. my power suply is 400W :]

Try the lowest setting for clouds and autogen.
Shut off shadows, all AI traffic and go low on scenery.

Also you might have too much dust in the computer case and have to clean it out, paying special attention to the fans and heatsink.

If you want, shut off your anti-virus when flying to free up some memory.
See how that does.

It also sounds like your powersupply is either dieing on you or its not enough power because you might have other have installed in it or attached to it.

Like RM said, you might want to see if you can get a more powerful powersupply for you computer first, because that'll be cheaper than getting a new card at the moment.

Is this a store bought computer or did you build this yourself?

It's store bought.
Thanks for info:]

One more tip, which maybe will help you to say what else is wrong and what to do - when I'm playing some games, for example operation flash point, fsxd (Boeing 747), hmm prince of Persia, it is in more games, but I think these examples will be fine,firstly I'm starting to hear crackeled sound and after that the sound goes like in a slow motion, like you are playing the tape and slowing it (voice comes low, slow music) after few seconds pc reboots.. Maybe there is some problems with drivers or sound device? I'm using C-Media if it could help you..Thank you ❗ waiting ➡ ❓ :]

Does the PC reboot when you use other programs on your PC?

If it does, then it could be not enough power or something else is not right.

What the hell is going on? ;[ when i start the flight the textures are normal a few seconds and after that they turns into these..broken..I know it's maybe of my bad graphic card, but why other aircrafts look fine? ;[[ I want my 747 ;[ ;D

I don't see anything wrong with the first image, unless you mean you're to close to the cockpit, then If thats the case use your - key to zoom out.

As for the others it looks like you don't have of the graphics turned up in FSX or its a slow card like you said, or it it could be a bad download/install you have.

IMHO the deluxe is the better of the two FSX.
