Hi guys, I have been using MSFS since its beta version and had random CTD from time to time. Anyways, from the very end of December I am getting lots of CTDs (let’s say, I succeed in completing just 2 flights in 10!).
I have read a lot of posts regarding CTD and tried all the solution suggested by many of you, yet without any result. My CTD happen at any stage of the flight (taxing, taking off, cruising, approaching, taxing after landing!) and happen regardless of the 3rd party addons (happen also with totally empty Community folder) and of real time traffic and weather (happen also with preset weather and no AI traffic). I have no overclocking, I have updated and rolled back GPU drivers, disabled rolling cache, repaired the MSFS app, set English (USA) as my Windows default language, updated my Windows 10, increased my virtual memory pagefile. I really don’t know what to do next.
Here are my pc specs:
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-7700K CPU @ 4.20GHz, 4201 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
OS: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, 10.0.19042 Build 19042
RAM: 32 GB (4 x 8 GB DDR4 3200 Mhz)
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
MB: ASRock Z270 Pro4
SSD: M2 500 GB (dedicated exclusively to MSFS)
Hope you can give me some new suggestion. Thanks in advance.
hmmm… also tried the depicted other settings ( Text2Speach… ) ?
It’s of course a try and that you got allready CTD before 18.104.22.168 makes the differentiation not easier
I assume with the 1070 you should use the latest nvidia drivers.
Related to overcloacking: dont forget that many users have issues with the RAM if XMP mode is enabled, thus a test without xmp-mode on might be it worth.
Hi, I’ve tried to investigate the XMP issue but can’t figure it out. In my bios, there is no option to activate or deactivate XMP, but just allows to create some sort of profiles. Here are a couple of pictures. How can I change those settings in order to optimize for MSFS? Thanks
Ah gotcha. There should be a way to turn off the XMP profile in the DRAM config or at the start screen of the BIOS. Worst case scenario, maybe resetting the CMOS by pulling the battery for 30 seconds and putting it back in may work.
What kind of power supply? Is it running properly?
I’ve already heard about some of them have a BTD here and there, but I haven’t heard / seen anything as bad as yours.
There must be a bigger problem somewhere. It’s not the RAM, unless one of the bolts is defective? Hope you find a solution … I would set traffic to OFF, also no AI, and let’s see if it works better. When it was released, that helped me immediately and I ran out of BTDs. In the lost 4 months i have not one BTD.
