Default FSX Crashing /freezing !

Howdy guys'n girls. I have a problem here
My FSX Freezes randomly, sometimes in seconds after the graphics start
rolling...
Sometimes i can enjoy flying 1 hour or so...but it eventually
freezes/crashes
After the crash i have to alt tab to windows and kill the process from
taskmanager.

after that i cant start fsx anymore before reboot, if i do so, it will
try to start, after it has allocated 50megs off ram, the process stops
using any cpu resources and hangs there.

I have clean installed xp with all updates / Sp2 / DirectX / newest
forceware
FSX is clean installed and updated to sp1 + c++ redist sp1

Note that the exactly same freeze/crash happens also when i tried this
with clean installed 64bit xp. with all the updates and ....yada yada....

I have tried to run the game in different scenery settings, with and
without AA, i have tried every combination that i can figure. also tried
it in windowed mode...
have run dxdiag, everything passes, all ok according to that.
Have tried to lower my direct sound accel.....no use.
I dont have any heat issues what so ever with my comp. i have 500w
purepower feeding the juice...
No overclocking done what so ever.

I have installed other games like Oblivion, Wow, HL2, BF2 and played
these for hours with extreme settings they work well and fast, no
crashing, not a single one.

Default FSX Crashing /freezing !

Hello,

Not easy,

The SP1 FSX boost effectly FSX, but it is not
realy stable, i need to reinstall 2 time my one.

Do you activate specficic dual core option experiment into FSX SP1 ?
that is absolutly not stable in FSX.

Randomize freze memory error, may be, look
nvidia driver update with your 7950 GX2 series
when specfic graphic action is asked.

I have 8800 GTX nvidia with Directx 10, i have no more problem, after
update driver.

Try to test with all setting graphic to low, just for see.
if no crash, up the setting step by step.

Regards
