  honeybabe 15:09 02 Mar 2004

Anyone had probs with flight sim 2004. After several instals I still can't see the instruments in cockpit view ( big black space ) virtual cockpit view is ok. 2002 works a lot better and everything is there. I have uninstalled everything from 2002 but still the same. I am running XP pro, AMD athlon XP3000,512 MB of RAM, Leadtek 256MB graphics card. Everthing is fine on my other PC.

Look at

NVIDIA Video Cards and Adapters
Nvidia Geforce FX cards: When you start the game, the cockpit appears black and the instrumental panel does not appear. To resolve this issue, download and install the latest Nvidia card drivers.

Update to the version 45.23 or higher drivers. To do so, visit the following NVIDIA Web site:

While Microsoft recommends that you update your drivers, the following information may permit you to work around the issue. From the NVIDIA control panel set the Antialiasing option to the Application setting. The Application setting controls antialiasing directly in the game.

To work around this issue, follow these steps:
On your Windows desktop, right-click an empty area, and then click Properties.
Click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
Click the tab that displays the name of your NVIDIA GPU.
Click the Performance and Compatibility Settings option from the menu on the left.
Locate the second slider. The second slider is the Antialiasing slider.
Move the slider all the way to the left to the Application setting.
Click Apply for the change to take effect.
Nforce motherboards with integrated audio may require upgraded BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) and drivers.
To download this driver, visit the following NVIDIA Web site:
