I googled it, and it only looks to be a problem for people emulating it on other OSs. I would try a reinstall of the game, and then make sure you have the correct sound drivers installed. All the standard stuff.

Try finding the latest driver for your audio chipset and install the Fallout 3 patch that came out a couple days ago.

It is a Glitch in the game. A buddie of mine cant play the game for 5 mins. before it drops the ATI driver all together. I does not recover. Its not your computer. Bethesda put out a crappy game and I would take it back.

seems to be a lot of problem with fallout 3's compatibility with audio devices... I played about 8 hours (in rivet city now) and have only crashed once when my character drank some water in a toilet.

For some reason when I run FO3 it uses my audio codec. I never crash. Ever. Try installing CCCP and then play.
