Hello all,

I have a problem. I have not played my 2004 MS flight sim in awhile, so the other day I decided to play and the game starts off fine but as soon as I pull the yoke back and the plane leaves the ground the computer would reboot. I set the option to display the error code instead of rebooting and I receive the following message BAD_HEADER_POOL I went into MS CONFIG and unchecked MAPPING INDEXING and then got the error message BAD_HEADER_CALL So I switch back on the mapping index and from what I gather I have a bad or conflicting device driver. I know since the last time I actually played flight sim I have installed the following: DIAMOND PCI 7.1 EXTREEM SOUND CARD/ MEMOREX DUAL LAYER DVD BURNER that also came with NERO burning software BTW Nero always has an error when burning DVD's but that’s all I have changed with the computer and before that flight sim worked great. I tried to update all current drivers for the above mention items and all are updated or I already have the most current version. So at this point I'm at a loss as what to do now. Any help or ideas?

Here is the complete error message I receive on the blue screen:


STOP: 0X00000019 (0X00000020, 0X85A19710, 0X85A19848, 0X0A227001)

Well, when in doubt, uninstall and reinstall the game. Just be sure to leave the box for "delete save games and settings?" unchecked. That worked for me when I was having scenery issues.

Uh guys? Wanna take your eyes off that screen for a second? Raise the mice? Battle cry?
