Seems like a lot of people are having trouble with graphics now days. I have beat my head against the wall but nothing seems to help.
FSX fires up ok and scenery and aircraft are fine. Within 5 mins or so, aircraft lose their textures (may or may not come back after 5 mins or so) and the ground looks like pea soup. In addition, ramps at the airports don't show up but the parking spaces are a putrid lime green. Lights are nothing but black squares.
I have cleaned the insides of the computer because I thought it sounded like overheating - no go.
I have a E8500 3.2 with a 9800gt graphics card. 4 megs memory. Nvida driver 188.8.131.5250 and nhancer 2.5.9. Set everything up according to Nick C's instructions (thank you again Nick). Have rex gex utx and trafficx (which I also can't get to work)
Any help would be greatly appreciated
ps - FS9 works fine so it must be in FSX
