    The dreaded BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) is the most loathsome thing anyone runs into. Once in a blue moon, I do get the odd OOM (Out Of Memory) condition when using the sim for too long, but the BSOD is even worse. Best practice on a long flight is to save, and save often. Then whatever happens you just load the flight and pick up from last save. BSOD's are typically associated with a certain driver update, especially display adapter drivers, and more especially if it is Nvidia based. Windows does give an error code and saves a log of the BSOD. You can decrypt these error codes and this may just give you a hint as to what went wrong.

    Best wishes.
