Fallout 3 New Game Crash. Every time. - Page 2

post #11 of 38
Barry, did you recently changed GPU? If so, follow the steps I detailed above.

Recap:

Download and run driver cleaner pro.
Download latest drivers.
Install latest drivers.
Run the game, baby

If that doesn't work, perhaps you're running too hot? You aren't giving enough info; do you get artifacts, does it just close, does it blow up and catch fire, does it make ticking noises, etc.

I loaded everything fresh last weekend so all drivers are latest and no leftovers.I have tried to run the game at stock speeds and its still the same,It crashs as soon as i hit (Start a new game) I have went through and set some comtroles and everything was fine,no crash.I have loaded and reloaded it and didnt ness with any controls this time. I can watch the hole start up w/o problems.I really doesnt make sence because my P4 will run it and its has 6600gt with old drivers and it run XP pro so........
Its pissing me off is what its doing. I have been to the website for this game and i havent found any help. I know its something small and stupid that we're missing I just donr want to dismantle my sys to figure it out

I'm going to guess that's the root of your problems. Onboard probably won't cut it for Fallout 3.

It's gotta be a bug on their end. Not driver related. They better patch it up before they become not soo popular hehe,,

i havent been able to play for awhile.. i just installed the update and i still cant play. i know its not cuz my computer sucks cuz i had everything maxed out before it was crashing. my graphics card came overclocked from the factory by evga. speedfan says my graphics card is running at 126 degrees fahrenheit. i didnt think that was very hot. but i leave my computer on 24/7.. could that be my problem? i'm gonna turn it off when i go to bed, just to make sure.
