Help: FS2k2 Keeps Crashing

Thu Feb 21, 2002 6:49 am

I have been running FS2k2 for about a month now with no problems, then last week it started crashing on me. I am running winXP pro, and all i get is a blue screen, then the computer reboots. Upon loading a dialog appears telling me that the graphics card was unable to complete a drawing operation.

This is very annoying and i would like to know how i can fix it. It worked fine before!!!

My system is:
Advent 6413 Laptop
32mb Shared Video card (SiS 750)
256mb RAM (minus 32 for graphics card)
20g HD (with 2 gig free)
Windows XP Pro

I always get some internal error messages too. I have a choice to Ignore or close the program but Ican't cntinue. Once I close the program, the whole computer jams. It's pretty annoying especially when I have flew for the past 6 hours or so without saving the game!

Help?

Thanks

i really do sympathise. i know what its like to have a computer that crashes. my old computer that my bro put together was very shody indeed. whenever the graphics got a bit intense the computer would reset. then we got this p2 which is still just hanging in there. but i need a p3. my solution for u nighthawk would be to go to a profeesional computer guy and ask him what has detiriorated. did u buy the computer as a package or was it put together at home?

Cosync: The system is rock solid, FS2k2 is the only program that ever crashes, everything else works perfectly. Its shoddy microsoft programming not a faulty computer.
