[Help me] Fallout 3 constant funn system crash/freeze (that means no Ctrl-alt-del)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, Pips here. So, 2 days ago, I installed Fallout 3 GOTY edition. It has been having quite a lot of bugs, but the main one is that it will randomly freeze. This isn't a typical "alt-tab out or Ctrl-alt-del and force close", this is a full on system kapoot. stops responding completely. no alt tab, and then shortly after my monitors go black as result of "lack of signal". This makes it pretty much impossible to get any kind of error report, any kind of bug status or anything. It just stops.

I have updated to the latest patch. Didn't help.
I have installed the unofficial fix/patch, no help.
I have changed the settings to run with more/less cores, didn't help. (12 core Intel, kinda disappointing :/)
I have updated and downgraded drivers. nill.
I have allocated more memory. I have allocated less memory. I have given it more cores. I have given it less cores. I have run it in compatibility mode, I have run it in XP and Vista, I have have prayed to the Bethesda gods for help, but nothing has worked; it all ends in a full sys freeze and me dying a little bit on the inside each time.

Sys specs:

Install drive: Samsung 800series 356GB SSD
Processor: Intel i7 3930k 6 cores/12 threads @4.3GHz
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz 16GB (2x8GB)
GPU: 2x 7770 GHz edition (4GB GDDR5)
Mobo: MSi Big Bang II

If anyone has any help; a 5 year old article, a release by Bethesda, an old post or a fix/patch, It would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

inb4, yes I have googled the problem many times. all the solutions have not done anything.

Is it really random? There was one glitch where the game would crash and burn if you'd enter any different game cells, which seemed random until I noticed it only crashed when I got near new places. The only fix that worked for me was just starting a new game.

I'd assume you already tried this, but test out other games as well. Could be a hardware problem.
