i cant get the damn game to run for more than 20 seconds. Funny thing is i had a pirated copy and it worked fine, so i thought i should do the right thing and pay for it since i thought they deserved my money. What a crock. And on the support forums it just idiots who either give you a cop out or scapegoat your system. Its sad when there is almost 20 pages of people with problems with the game not running and they dont do anything to help but belittle and give you crap excuses.

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.
this worked tested for about 30mins without any lockups
(old > freezes randomly/consistently (10-15 mins into game or past 30mins)
+rep

cleaner pro was kinda slow though...

Hmm, seems like it's very common crash in Fallout 3, and im getting my cut of it too. So, i have this "New Game? -YES!" -crash too, and i really don't know the reason for it, because my computer is fully capable for this game, and it still gives the crash every time i try to start a new game. I've tried re-install twice (didnt help), tried to clean my registerfiles (didnt help), tried to use the Official- and Unofficial Patch (didnt help), tried to lower the graphic settings (didnt help), tried to uninstall and re-install Xvid (didnt help either) and now im all out of ideas of what to do next... Should i just take my FO3 CD and blow it up, or what?

My system specs are:

CPU: AMD Phenom X4 9850 2,5GHz
MoBo: MSI K9A2 CF-F
Memory: A-Data Vitesta 800MHz 4Gb DDR2
GPU: ASUS Radeon HD 4850 512Mb GDDR3 256bit
PSU: Corsair 450 Watt Power Supply 450VXEU
Soundcard: Realtek HD Audio, MoBo integrated

I have my DxDiag attached to this post, so read it if it provides any help to solve this.

If you need some more information about my specs, feel free to ask.

I read that this can be caused by FFDshow, which I didn't have. All the same, I downloaded and installed it and made fallout3.exe exempt in the video and audio configurations. Made no difference.

Oh, and I've also patched the game, but again to no avail. Is there anything I can do?
No way, you read that this could be caused by a program that you didn't have, so you downloaded it, installed it, then tried the fix for the problem that is caused by said program.
