    Out of memory error with Win 7 and FSX

    Hi all,

    In XP adjusting your 'page file' seemed to cure that but don't know nothing about W7.

    You're running Win7 32bit, correct? Because you should not see an OOM with 64bit, unless you've gone and done something to it?

    Pagefile

    Hi,

    Try enlarging the pagefile (virtual memory) in the advanced system settings of windows.

    Depending on your ram, make it twice the size of the ram and preferably move it to a partition or disk other than the C: drive.

    This should help.

    Cheers,

    Ian

    I received this message with win7 64 + 4GB RAM (+FSX)

    But now with 5GB RAM I don't have any more

    The trend seems to be that 32 bit operating systems need 2 GB minimum, but 3 and even 4 GB works better. 64 bit OS's need 4 GB as the minimum, but 5 or 6 works better.

    I'm running Win7 32 bit on 4 gig of memory, three useable after the graphics card memory is accounted for. What I've seen recently is that if I'm over a dense scenery package like ORBX PNW, in a complex airplane doing more than about 150 knots, I get them, under that, I don't. It seems that FSX can't keep up the surface load at that speed on the rig I have. I'm wanting a new PC anyway so that may drive the decision.

    Install SP2 or Acceleration.

    Hi all,
    Thanks for the help.
    I should have pointed out that I am using 32bit win 7,I have 4gb of memory and a 1gb graphics card.Also using a quad core intel 9650cpu.
    Never had this problem with Vista.
    And have acceleration and sp2 installed.
    Will try out the suggestions here and let you know what happens.
    Thanks again.

    I had something like this except it was the opposite direction I had craters and canyons that were miles deep and trees suspended in space all over tha place. Not sure if this will help but my problem was a land class file, I think it must have been for FS9 and I tried it in X with the above result, when I unchecked the scrnery things went back to normal. The add on I had problems with is for Atlantic Canada (I would have to look for the original file to give you specifics).

    I am not sure you are having the same problem but uncheck the TreeX and see if that helps, and also try a flight in an entirely different part of the world and see if the trees are a bit more to scale. If it is land class it will only affect the section covered by that scenery, if it's the TreesX it will be everywhere, which a re-install might fix. Oh and a defrag is always a good idea after messing with the swap file, especially if you were able to move it off the system drive.

    Good luck with it, darn pain in da butt following a glude slope through that kind of obstruction...lol
