hello all,
when exiting flight sim pc crashes and then reboots soon after a message pops up saying the system has recovered from a serious fault andto send error report to microsoft.
thier online crash analysis site says the error was likely caused by:
MSI PC Alert 111(ALCXWDM.SYS) and that an update is available,but i can't find it anywhere.
if anyone could help please don't be too technical as i am a grey haired novice

Did you go to update center? Why not use 'Windows update' and see if that sorts it out, there's a good chance it might be on the list of updates selected for your computer.
If this dont work, post back with the OS you are using ie XP or 98 etc..

Good Luck

have you got the latest drivers for your graphics card as msi mainly produce motherboards and graphics cards i suspect the latter may be your problem

to find out what graphic card you have run either aida 32 or belarc advisor this will give you a lot of information about your system click here click here both are free to use
