I just loaded up my flight that I was doing yesterday and for some reason all the instruments were black. I went to my overhead display and had to switch on a few things but still no instruments. this is a picture of what the panel looked like: http://solarcoasters.tripod.com/deadpanel.jpg
How can I fix this?
The chances are you have an NIVIDIA video card, change the drivers and that should help.
I acctually have a radeon 9800
Driver Cleaner also works for ATI cards as well
Go to the PMDG menu in flight (by hitting the ALT key) and go to "Import Panel State." You should see your flight saved in that list. Re-loading a flight is a two-step process.
That fixed it. I also have one other question... Where do I go to put in the frequency for an ILS landing. I saw two radios but none of them will go to that frequency.
I believe that is entirely handled in by the FMC. It even tunes it in at the right distance! However, the last 5 approaches I made were visual, so I definitly can't remember how it worked, sorry!
