I just installed two 1GB sticks of Kingston RAM on my motherboard. The PC reads it--shows I now have 3GB where before I had only one. However, when I opened FS9, I was only able to operate the sim for about two minutes before it crashed to desktop.
The first GB came with the machine. The other two were shipped as a "kit." All of which I think means they're Dual Channel (or DDR).
Everything else works fine. Can't figure why FS9 would disable itself after having more memory added!!
Anyone have an idea what the cause might be? Any constructive ideas are most welcome!!
