I had my online computer go down recently, so I had to put my offline computer into service as my only unit.
It is an older HP Compact 7700 minitower, it only had 1/2 gig of ram, and on-board video. Everything seemed ok, I had Auto-CAD, FMS, my personal pictures, and things like that. I didn't want it to get screwed up with all the internet BS, that slows down an online computer.
I increased to 4 gigs of ram (maxed) and installed a Zotac GeForce GT 430 video card, it has 1 gig of video ram, and has an NVIDIA engine, and direct X 11. It is supposed to be good for games and even 3D
FMS simulator worked fine with the on -board video, but now most of the aircraft is transparent, I can only see about 30-40%.
I have checked everything I can think of, and get no error messages anywhere.
I get some transparent aircraft too, have no idea why. Also, some planes won't fly unless the throttle is advanced before the "landscape" is loaded, then cease to function after the throttle is shut off. Sorry I can't help, it's just nice to know I'm not the only one.....
I am just hoping to hold this bucket of transistors together,until I can get a new machine, then this one will be the online, and the new one will not be online except to register and install certain programs.
I will probably get a new hot PC kit from Tigerdirect when I can, it will be my simulator computer so I will set it up right.
Thanks for the help but the new drivers didn't change anything. Maybe I will pull it out, and go back to on-board video, the 4gigs new RAM sure helped.
