Monitor Screen goes black intermittently while flying FSX

Pro Member Trainee

Any help appreciated...when I am flying FSX sometimes my monitor screen goes black (no signal found) on the screen, and then returns to normal. While it does this there is still sound. The duration is only for a few seconds?? I just put a new GPU in and checked all connections, any suggestions welcome. Thanks!

I would clean out the old video card driver and load another.
Let us know if that helps.

I deleted all old drivers, but when I fly the Carenado Skymaster it does this when on approach...doesn't do it when I fly the other planes.

Just on the Carenado, that may be the fault of the video card.
The aircraft is too graphic intensive for the card the handle.
You need a better card that you bought or lower some of the slides, autogen, shadows, clouds, AI.
That will loosen up some of the cards "power" to render the aircraft.
Let us know if that works.

Yeah it is a beautifully detailed aircraft. I installed a EVGA Geforce 750 Ti and thought it would handle it..will back off on sliders...thanks Radarman.

What parameters should I set the video card at on the video card program window on Windows 7? Thanks!

There aren't any set in stone settings for any card.
Just play around with the slides.
Maybe you want fewer clouds, or no AI no shadows so then you can divert the setting up to something you like such as scenery.
Autogen uses the most "power" from any card.

I lock my FPS at 20.

ok..I meant the Nivdia panel...what certain things meant on that i.e. global settings vs. program settings etc. I also noticed that all of my other Carenado planes do not black screen my FSX. I am going to re-download The Skymaster and see if that works. Thanks Radarman!

Hello everybody!

I have bought new computer last month and install FSX on it. The FSX is working normall, but when I parked the airplane and shout down the enginess, the sound of electricity appears (the electricity probably running the flight instruments - and that sound doesn't bother me), but in few moments that sound rapidly increase, and it is much louder than usual.

Can anyone help me?

I would be very happy any help!

Kind regards,

Check the sliders on the cockpit sounds in the 'sound area' this may help.

Also, you might trouble shoot the soundcard and your speakers or headphones for proper connections or shorting out or any other interference. Hope this helps.

I have tried many of things, but still the voice is increasing. The voice increas on louder noice (the voice of electricity), but when I switch one of the bottons, there is a "click", and the sound goes back on the normal volume for the some time.

It is looks like that the noice increas on the louder volume, but when another noice (button switching "click") appears, the other goes back on the normal volume.

Thank you very much for any reply!

Some add on aircraft do have louder cockpit voices and engine volumes maybe try and reinstall FSX as a last resort. Make sure you experiment with the sliders first...in the 'Sound' area from Settings.

Also this problem may be in your mouse or mouse settings?
