    Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3: Crashing Problem
    (This has occurred since I got my new computer. The CFS3 still works fine on
    my old windows 98 system.)

    My Computer is a HP Pavilion dv9205us Notebook PC, running Vista.

    To minimize crashing I have been booting my computer with loading system
    services only. This usually gives me 20 Minutes of play before crashing. I
    always run the program as an administrator and I have enabled XP in the
    properties compatibility box.

    The game works great for anywhere from 5 minutes to 60 minutes. Then the
    game freezes and the desktop appears with a dialogue box appears saying
    “Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3 has stopped working. Windows is
    collecting information about the problem.†After a few minutes another
    dialogue box appears saying: “A problem caused the program to stop working
    correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is

    This has been going on for 6 months. Does anyone have any suggestions for
    me to try?

    Have you tried reinstalling the program?

    This error can also occur if your computer is low in memory space, or there
    is a problem with your graphics card.
