1. How full is your hard drive?

2. When was your last defrag?

Friends, I had the same problem before. As to my understanding, this is due to the video display conflict between the Windows and the graphic card. I tried many ways suggested by our friends, but nothing helped. Finally I formated and reinstalled Windows and FSX . The problem is over. The FSX starts normally in seconds. Try this.

How do you reinstall windows and does this delete all your files?

If you have a second hard drive, save everything you want to keep in there, unplug it before formating (just to be safe), plug it back in, after windows is back on

actually something strange is happening. I had to repair fsx acceleration because I have reinstalled sp1 and before I did that fsx was running like clockwork if not better? However the gauges textures where missing and other textures where doing some weird thing so I am going to test fsx with and without fsx acceleration installed and see where is goes from there.

Ok it taking slight less time to load but really unnoticeable. However fsx is running smoother it self?
