FS2004 Black screen and then it restarts


I would be flying and then I get the Black screen and then it restarts. I have very thing on high and getting 25 FPS and more if I go to unlimited. Here are my spec.

Dell Workstation 490
2x Dual-Core Intel® Xeon® 5160 3.0GHz, 1333 FSB, 4MB L2 Cache, 80 watts
12 Gigs Mushkin Enhanced Proline DDR2 FB-DIMM ECC Fully Buffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300)
Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi PCI-Express
1 Ghz EVGA GTX 560Ti DS Video Card

Hi there, first of all do you get the crash to desktop at the same place everytime you are flying? If you do then it may well be a problem with some addon scenery you have. We don't have much information to go on so it's a bit hard to determine exactly the fault. Are you keeping an eye on the temps of the computer, it seems you may have everything working pretty hard. You gpu or cpu may be overheating and causing the crash. Is it just Fs2004 that crashes or does the computer restart?

throw some more information our way mate and we see if we can't help you out bud.


It crashes randomly. But doesn't crash to desktop. Because it automatically restarts FS2004. Temps are fine on all hadrware.

Thanks Nathan
