Running DirectX 9.0b and a Radeon 64Mb 9000 Pro with the 3.6 Catalyst =
drivers. No problems with the patched Mohaa at all. Perhaps you should =
update your motherboard chipset drivers.

Oops - thought this was the ATi newsgroup. Anyway, on my other =
computer, I have a GeForce 4 - 440 Mx - 64 Mb card running the 4.43 =
nVidia drivers and the patched Mohaa. No problems on that PC either.

Perhaps you need to update the drivers for your motherboard chipset.

Drivers are 43.45 which seem quite stable and with the exception of
the reported problem rarely cause any problem

I'm not sure now if Flight Simulator 2004 installed DX9.0a or 9.0b now
tried checking on properties and it says DX9 or better, very helpfull!

Might DL and install 9.0b and see if that changes things
