Hi all!

As the title says, I have now got Flight Sim 9/FS2004 C.o.F working again. Thanks to all of you who tried to help me some months ago so here is what was happening and what solved the problem (This is a newish fault)

Problem: After 5+ minutes of starting a flight anywhere, the computer rebooted. Of course I tried memory checks, heat checks, re-installing the program, and black magic but all with no luck!

Answer to the problem: I found by chance a post about a chap and some German flight sim experts that had noticed that the December on-board AC97 update was causing the same problems that I was having. After roll-backing the AC97 driver to an earlier version, all is well. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/inlove.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Just one more problem that I have to now solve is getting my external harddrive working again (corrupt master boot record. Hopefully the software that I have just got will sort this out)
