Hi has your system been overclocked? I was looking to overclock my system and read up on it and the screen going blue was one of the faults that could accur. Not saying it is that but just something i have read.

Either the video card can't handle the graphic intensive aircraft you using or the computer has dust problems and needs to be cleaned.

To test the video card, turn down the autogen, clouds, shadows, and AI.
The Sim will look terrible but now your putting the cards power to the aircraft not the scenery.

If you clean it out, make certain to get all the dust out of the CPU fan and the video card fans.
