Windows 7: Flight Simulator locks up.

Flight Simulator locks up.

Recently,my HP has started locking up when flying in FS9. There is no method to its madness. It will freeze,and keep looping the sound. I have to press the power button on the PC to get it to do anything. Could it be over heating?

Hello,

If you can trace the problem to a certain date, the first step is a system restore. Read this tutorial: System Restore

If you think your system is overheating, test your temperatures with Speedfan.

If your CPU were getting about about 65C, I might start to get a little concerned.

As for GPU, it depends entirely on which one you have. Most nVidia GPUs can safely operate at 105C, but research is needed before a blanket statement can be issued.

Post a screenshot of the Speedfan windows and someone will take a look.
