Help? Fallout 3: New Vegas crashes at start if number of active mods exceeds 157.

TL;DR: Title

For whatever reason, my install of Fallout 3: New Vegas WILL crash to desktop immediately after displaying the 'Bethesda Softworks: A ZeniMax Media Company' splash screen before the main menu if the number of active mods in the load order exceeds 157.

The mods that are active seem to be of no detail. I have tested many various combinations of weapons, texture packs, sound additions, quests, homes, armor, animation, sound, and world-changing mods, and the game will, without fail, crash if the combination exceeds 157 master and plugin files. (For reference, this means that the last plugin ID I can load is 9C... perhaps the ID 9D is somehow broken?)

My game is patched to 1.4.0.525 and has all DLCs installed. I have tested launching from the default loader and exe, NVSE, FOMM, and NMM. All produce the same crash with the aforementioned criteria.

Why is this happening?


PS. Is there any way I can get the NMM to export my load order to text, so I might paste that here in case it becomes relevant? I am quite sure these crashes are not related to my load order, as I know all too well what careless orders can do to a game, but it might be necessary nonetheless...

Ta!

Fallout 3 and New Vegas are 2 separate games btw. I had this issue in New Vegas though. Do you have any ASUS software like Smart Doctor or AI Suite installed? If so try uninstalling and and then starting a game.I just had this software installed and wasn't even running it and it was causing my issue. Quite a few others had the same problem.

I keep forgetting New Vegas is a standalone and not an expansion, thus calling it '3' is incorrect...

I don't have Smart Doctor or AI Suite installed, unfortunately. Or if I do, they don't appear in my Programs and Features list on my computer.
