Did you try and reinstall the game ? Did you try and defragging your hard drive ?

yep I did. I also defragged and updated all drivers. my computer, a HP amd phenom 11+4820 quadcore processor, 8Gb with a nvidia geforce 9100 graphics card and windows7. The flight sim works ok for about 10 minites. then it slows way down to allmost a compleat stop. its like a just turned the fram rate to 0.

sounds like a heat issue with your onboard gfx. the 9100 is a hd display card. not really designed for intensive gfx tasks like gaming. so it could be your motherboard is throttling it back due to either drawing to much power or heat.

recommendations, get a dedicated gfx card. your games will thank you for it.
make sure you have a minimum of 450 watts on your psu and try for a minimum of a 88gt

The 9100 is not a gaming card at all, and it seems like you are having this problem due to overheating. Like Hexit said, get a better GFX card, like the 8800 GT. Though I may not be sure if its still around these days, butgoing for that could help you.

your rite the 88gt is hard to get your hands on unless second hand. but i just mean to use it as a refrence card. so 88gt 98gt. gts250 4850. cards of that nature. which are still good cards for modest rez and settings.

Indeed, 8800 GT is quite an old card, and still packs a very good punch !!
Its still a good Card to be having around, even if its outdated. And also, 9800 GT, 250 GTS, and the HD 4850 are still options.
