fallout 3 crashes on windows 7

Can somebody please help me?
I have recently bought fallout 3 game of the year edition for my Samsung r580 laptop; it runs on windows 7 home premium 32bit. I have successfully installed the game and can play it for about 2-3 minutes before it crashes. Nothing can get me out of the crash except ctrl alt delete. I have gotten the updated version 1.7 but the problem still continues. Can anyone help me to get this sorted out?
Many thanks
