Hey all. I am having an issue with FS 2004.
I click on the FS 2004 icon on my desktop. I choose the flight that i am
interested in, my screen goes black and the next thing I know is I have been
"ejected" from FS 2004 and all that appears is my desktop.

Anyone have a suggestion or two on how to remedy this problem. It was
running great until Friday.
I have already exchanged FS 2004 from the place I bought it at.

Please help me....
Thanks.
Dave

Dave, try:
alt.games.microsoft.flights-sim
I think it's a much busier group.

Hi all.
I forgot to add this second problem I am having as well.

Situation #2 is when I go to create a flight, everything works great until I
want to go the kneeboard. The minute I touch the scroller / sliding devices
that allows me to go up and down, my computer screen goes black, and i have
to manually turn off my computer at the power bar and then turn my computer
back on.

Any ideas on this as well?

Hi all. I tried the suggestion at the FAQ address Katy wrote and everything
checks out. EVerything is where it is supposed to be.

Any other ideas?
Thanks.

With the additional description of the problem I'd rather suspect a
drivers/resources conflict, are all drivers up to date including the
motherboard ones?

I am having a similar problem. FS9 crashes to the desktop when I select the
flight planner or press shift+3 for the GPS module.

I checked the FAQ below, but it did not help.
