While landing in the Cessna landing lesson in flight School my computer crashed to a blue screen and rebooted.  I did report a bug and included the log.

A blue screen? Possibly a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death). If you got that occurring, your PC has a major issue

Hi Howard,

I am experiencing the same problem at present.  I put it down to the environment I operate in.  Outside daytime temps are in the order of high 20s to low 30s at present.  If like last year will be over 40 degrees centigrade.

One solution to your problem is make sure your room temperature is below 25 degrees ie you need to keep the room cool. My ultimate arrangement will be a dedicated room fitted with its own air conditioner set at 22 degrees centigrade.

Also, not knowing what your computer is, presumably a Windows based PC, hopefully not a laptop, due to the software being used, you need to ensure you have adequate cooling in the case not only for the processor but also for the power supply and additional case cooling.

Hope this helps.

Thanks guys.  Right after the blue screen the PC rebooted itself and all appears to be fine now!
