RE: Nothing Changes, does it?
Get another 512mb of ram and I 99% guarantee this will fix your problem. I had the same experience in FS2002 doing a certain flight, when I came to a certain part of the flight FS 2002 would freeze. Added another 512mb of ram to my 512mb of ram problem solved.
Windows XP Home
1gb 2700 ram
Geforce 4 4200 64mb
Asus P4B533 Mother board
BTW I have read somewhere on the net that on some systems Windows XP reqiures 512mb of ram to run properly.
