Blue screen!

  Rhuddlan 16:11 22 Mar 2005

I have just purchased Flight Simulator 20014 and FS Traffic 2004. FS 2004 installed fine, but after I put the FS Traffic 2004 cd in the comp, a black screen appeared for a few seconds and then the dreaded blue screen with loads of technicial info, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL was included in the text as well as USB.SYS twice at the bottom with loads of other stuff I didn't understand, I haven't installed any new hardware or drivers as of late, so I don't undertand how this has happened, comp is only 2 weeks old and this is the first time I have seen it. Please help!

Thanks for the links, my pc does meet the system requirments for fs traffic 2004 as well as fs 2004. I have performed the memory test and all is fine. Any other ideas? Like I said this has only happened once and hopefully was the only time.

while you are playing the game turn off all services you normally run, Wallpaper,Screen saver,Spyware progs,Antivirus progs particularly will interfere with such games. If you have enough memory to run the game the error message also suggests software issues whereby running any of the afore mentioned may cause conflict...
