Hello,After a time of 1 year that i havn't played Flight Simulator X Deluxe i tough: let's play it again.So in installed it on my Acer Aspire 5560G laptopSpecs:- windows 7- 64 bit- 8gb ram- quad core amd a6 of 2,30ghz- AMD Radeon HD 6720G2 (1GB VRAM)- FSX on c partition (enough space)But on some planes, like the Cessna i don't have the instruments like the alt-meter. The only thing i see is a big hole and the sky. And almost all the standard planes have a ''black'' radio screen.Can somebody tell me what the problem is?picture:Things I've tried:- deleted all my addons- run as administrator.- run as Vista- run as XP- service pack 1- service pack 2- re install- and again... (install, delete all files, service packs, run in admin, run as XP and Vista)- search on other sites (forums, google, Microsoft support, this forum)
Please donate today!

re install on d partition and with uac off. also run as admin. still no instruments.
don't install fsx in the folder program files((x86)), but outside: eg c:fsxbut 1st turn UAC off, then run as adminjohn
so, i need tot do a rollback?
Most likely a game compatibility problem with video card or drivers would be my first guess.

I still say its a messed up driver issue on your pc. Uninstall your video drivers then boot to safe mode and run Driver Sweeper in safe mode to fully remove all ATI bit.http://phyxion.net/Driver-Sweeper/Driver-Sweeper/Then reboot normal and do a fresh install of latest video drivers.

The link is duff, John, but I think you stumbled onto the right track. I followed it up, and found this, which I think is where you went, right? It looks like the answer is probably these two dll's - MSVCP70.DLL and msvcr70.dll in the system32 folder.gauges_recovery_fsx.zipLicense: FreewareAdded: 19th January 2010Downloads: 2310Author: Erik BENDERSize: 11710kb
File Description:New ! Since version 1.2 Gauges Recovery also fix the problem of compatibility from FS9 add-ons which display all gray and without texture !!! DESCRIPTION: For years I worked on Flight Simulator I realized that many people have problems with showing the gauges panel (black screen) or special effects such as afterburner, smoke or line of condensation occurring after uninstalling an add-on or accidentally deleted files of the simulator. In your Flight Simulator X there is a folder named 'Gauges' it contains files 'gauges' representative board instrumentation for each add-on, such as the autopilot, the horizon indicator etc, if you delete one of these files, your panel will not display the gauge that it was programmed. It is the same for the folder 'Effects' that contains all the special effects in FSX, it sometimes happens that some files in these folders disappear leaving your simulator in a situation where you no longer see your instrument panel (black screens) and afetburner invisible. Under these conditions, you reinstall FSX and lose a lot of time (and patience). So I created Gauges Recovery, a small free utility that will restore all your gauges and effects of origin in less than 10 seconds. With Gauges Recovery, you're sure to get the display of all gauges and effects. This program does restore the original files from Microsoft FSX FSX SP1, FSX SP2 and not the files from other publishers, no changes will be made to these files. Some people see the gauges all black (black screens), unless FSX is installed correctly. The solution to this problem is to install the files MSVCP70.DLL and msvcr70.dll in your 'system32', Gauges Recovery does this automatically for you. Do not look if Gauges Recovery is installed because there is no installation, the program only updates files in FSX and nothing else.

Yep - it looks identical to mine, Roy.. I'm going to see if this thread can be moved to the aircraft design forum - there are more expert people there who can better help you than most people here can.Yep - it looks identical to mine, Roy..
