    FSX Error

    I just installed FSX Vanilla, works fine except when I start a flight, go to the map, set altitude at 10,000 and it goes for about 10-30 seconds roughly, and it crashes and comes up with the "Microsoft Flight Simulator Has Stopped working" message
    If it helps, here are my PC Specs

    Operating System
    Microsoft Windows 8 64-bit
    Intel Core i7 @ 2.20GHz 49 °C
    Ivy Bridge 22nm Technology
    8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)
    54 °C
    Generic PnP Monitor (1366x768@60Hz)
    Intel HD Graphics 4000 (HP)
    Hard Drives
    932GB Seagate ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB (SATA) 30 °C
    Optical Drives
    hp CDDVDW SU-208BB
    IDT High Definition Audio CODEC

    The laptop model is an HP Envy m6
    I had FSX on my other laptop which broke, an HP Envy Dv6, and exactly the same thing happens. It happens no matter where you fly or what plane, but my latest error I was flying a De Havilland Comet, above Charles-de-Gaulle Airport in Paris, France.
    Haven't tried anything yet. I am new to FSX and Windows 8.

    Hey you should work with this guy
    Flight Simulator X screen freezes.

    He is also having problems and maybe you can get help from him.

    I am just thinking the program is old (2009) and maybe you should try the new one (2012) Microsoft Flight
