When ever i start up flight sim X a second or two when it's on the blue loading screen it crashes my computer and i have to restart it.

Any resolutions? because i really don't want to reinstall it because it's working so good.

Thanks

The computer crashes or the Sim crashes.

If it's the Sim delete the log file.

If it's the computer, open the case and clean out the machine, all the dust can cause overheating.
Look at the heatsink, dust cakes in the vanes.
If this happens with other high graphic games then you have to check your power supply.

My uneducated guess, the video card, a new one after disabling the onboard one may help but not if it's the motherboard.
Dell has had problems on and off with their older mobos.

If you are still in warranty call them.

😂 Bet they'll tell you to reinstall the OS, that's what they do when they can't find the right answer.

Hi Folks

Truckernick -
My apologies,
I'd thought I'd incorporated the following info.
Wiki is now updated accordingly.

Try this -

=== Issue ===
Launching FSX causes the operating system to crash, (BSOD).

Possible cause,
you'd installed a different video driver,
and FSX was not aware you'd done so.

=== Solution ===
Rename your fsx.CFG to fsx_BSOD.CFG

Launch FSX.
A clean fsx.CFG will be built, containing the appropriate driver name.
