Technic Problems On FSX

Sun Aug 09, 2009 6:34 pm

Hi all,
my FSX was working well, and since yesterday, I have a problems with the flaps. Indeed, I am not able to deploy them when I press as usual F7 or F8.
What do you think?

If FSX is similar enough to FS9, it could be a problem with your keyboard assignments: i.e., your computer doesn't know anymore what F7 and F8 mean.

To correct that, you might have to go into "Assignments and sensitivities" (IIRC), close enough to the "Display settings" menu.

Does your keyboard have a function key lock? Mine does....
