I have come to the conclusion that maybe i need to get some info or help from PC tech minds.

I use FSX on my newish rigged PC, now it would seem that occasionally FSX will totally freeze soon after loading into the sim in various spots around the globe. I at first thought this might be a case of AI Traffic causing the freezing but when i removed the AI traffic the freezing would still happen.

This isn't every-time as such but its occurance is enough to be annoying and almost make me feel like i have to be ever so gentle with what ever i do in the sim....

When it does happen everything freezes, including alt ctrl delete commands and also the mouse stops and whatever sound there is falls into a millisecond loop (aircraft flight-deck sound) which is also rather irritating. I do have an overclocked system, some people on the Avsim FSX forums say it could be a poor sound card issue...others think i might have my setup too high for FSX????

In any case i have 0% experience in BIOS or even taking the steps to lower or improve these hard freezes...

As far as i am aware all drivers are to their latest versions too. My settings in FSX are also at a level that you would expect suitable for the rig i have...

Dear Mark:
Run diags for the memory [ W7 repair environment by booting to the W7 DVD ], for 8 hours, or until an error appears.

Are your mem sticks matched?

Run a HDD diag.

Set the over clocked items to nl clocking.

I use OCCT for CPU & GPU stressing.

I had a BSOD problem with a non gaming machine; my video driver was referenced. I had the latest video driver, but uninstalled, ran Guru3D's driver sweeper 7 re-installed from a fresh download. Same BSOD. I went down 1 version of video driver. I haven't had a BSOD since. Newer is NOT always better.
Who wrote the drivers? ASUS? Nvidia. Someone on this forum recently had a similar problem with leshcat graphics drivers.

Memory sticks are all the same make to my knowledge

I apologize.

Your "Hatfield" location threw me. :)
