I've now done a run, part single screen and part triple head. CPU temp
didn't rise above 57.
I've also had a pause free run, having changed from my favourite APM20, with much modified panel, to the Default C182.
The bad news, though not as bad as the hot lockup, is that doubling RAM to 2Gb hasn't cured the blurries. Looks as though it's inadequicies either in my P4 2.8 or my Nvidia 6800GT.

As you've probably already concluded, the lock up is from over-heating.
Possible causes are:
Cooling fan(s) slowing/failing. Graphics card overheating Power supply failing
The last of these is usually the most suspect.

I was quietly pottering along when the FS9 display froze and a high
pitched and continuous alarm started. I tried to set up the temperature
display but everything was locked up, still with FS9 filling the screen. I
tried to rest the system but nothing happened. Next I tried to close
down via the front panel's power button. No result. Finally I had to
shut down via the main power in switch, on the back of the PC case. When I
tried to power up again there was a series of clicks and another
lockup, which again left me having to shut down via the power in switch.
After 30 minutes I've been able to re start. Won't run FS9 until I have
a better idea of likely cause.
Any bright ideas gratefully accepted.
What was the old add..."You're never alone with a Strand". Your never
so alone as when the PC goes down!!!!!!!!!!
