How to tell if computer hardware will be sufficient for Flight Simulator X
Husband in pilot training, neither of us into computer gaming. We bought Flight Simulator X with the following requirements :
* Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista * Processor: 1.0 Ghz * RAM: Windows XP SP2 - 256MB, Windows Vista – 512MB * Hard Drive: 14GB * Video Card: 32MB DirectX 9 compatible * Other: DX9 hardware compatibility and audio board with speakers and/or headphones
Our computer would not run the game because of the video card. Friend has gaming computer for sale and claims it will run FSX fine, but want to make sure before we purchase it on Friday.
His machine has :
2.93ghz desktop with Windows XP, 120gb(80+40) hard drive space, CD/DVDburner, 9 in 1 card reader, 768mb RAM, a modem, an ethernet port, a256mb Radeon 9250 graphics card.

This game is probably the most graphic intensive flight simulator out there in the market except for Tom Clancy's HAWX (a military jet fighter game which has even better graphics).
Hope I helped
It is most likely registering you in their database, so just fill it in, and the serial number is to make sure that you bought the product so on the product you should have the serial number (most likely on the back of the box or on the pamphlet inside)
2 choices for you. Get the external to run the game or 2. Add a larger hdd to the system as a slave drive leaving the smaller drive as the master. If you go the 2nd route just make sure you buy a compatible hdd. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
Most (game) programs require the use of a "game" disc as a means of reducing piracy (by requiring that the disc is present, it eliminates the "here install this game, it's fun and free" type of piracy). That being said, there are programs that allow you to circumvent this protection, and some of them even work. I would not recommend it however.
Check that your system meets the games minimum requirement....Even if
one of your game's minimum requirement fails the game won't load...Also you may be having a hardware/software conflicting problem( common with "self made" computers).
Check your games on another computer if possible
This process does take a long time. From experiance I have the game also. It takes like 3-4 minutes for it to load for me. What I can suggest is trying to reinstall it. If that doesn't work im at a loss sorry bud.
