Thread: Show off your desktop

    I don't really care what kind of setup one has. I created the thread for all to share their desktop flight Sims. So it's no biggie.

    I did an 18 minute long video with me rambling about all the crap on my desk, but the video caught a pic of my crappy bed and I didn't want that in the public domain. HAHAHA So I'll have to redo it, and this time I'll make it shorter.

You got a laptop Bill, I would love to see where you normally set it up and use FS.

    Wow, I didn't think a Kaby would work in 7. I don't care about updates myself, so no hack needed, but the fact it runs is impressive. Have you gotten any BSODs or any other abnormalities? I wouldn't mind a 7700k myself. It looks like it has a slight bump in single threaded ability vs my Skylake i5 6600k.


    Nice setup. I have the GIGABYTE AORUS GA-Z270X-Gaming K7.

    Microsoft don't WANT you to get Windows 7 running on a Kaby! They want you to use Windows 10 instead... Which I did for 5 months until I got fed up of my favourite add-ons not working... So back to Windows 7. I had to work out how to load my mainboard drivers by keyboard commands only, because Win7 doesn't support Intel USB 3.0 or 3.1 extensible chipset - thank heavens I don't have a USB keyboard! I was getting constant 'Unsupported Hardware' warnings and Windows Update kept failing on 8 or 9 updates... so I googled the error and found this fix: https://github.com/zeffy/wufuc
    This removes the 'Unsupported Hardware' warnings and re-sets Windows Update - which DOES support the 'unsupported' hardware after all! No BSOD's or other crashes to report, but the CH Yoke & pedals don't wake up after putting the PC to Sleep or Hibernate. I launch the CH Control Manager on wake-up and go to Test/Calibrate, then click Rescan, which wakes up the Yoke and Pedals again. It's not THAT much hassle and well worth it!

    Yeah, I have Windows 7 64 and 3.0 USB ports as well. When I installed my OS I could not use the keyboard or mouse due to the absence of the driver. Even USB 2.0 wouldn't work. So I had to burn the driver to CD with my laptop and use a PS/2 mouse (luckily this MOBO has a PS/2 port) and open the driver from there. Once the USB 3.0 driver was installed I had access to all USB ports.

    I don't use the control manager for my yoke and pedals. I found that FSX IDs them fine and can map the buttons. I should let you know I have read about numerous problems with PCs using hibernation or sleep mode. You really should just shut down the computer. I never use those low power settings. I'd rather have a fresh boot up without any issues.

    I think I'll slip stream the USB driver into my OS disk instead.
