Fallout 3 Windows 7?

I just installed Fallout 3 and all 5 downloadable content. I tried to run it and the launcher runs the screen with "Launch" "Options" "Tech Support" etc.

When I click launch I get this error:

"Fallout
Failed to initialize renderer."

Only option I get is "OK" when I click it everything cancels.

Does that mean I can't play it on Windows 7?

Oryt hmmm, it doesn't seem like windows 7 has picked it up, know where can I see the graphics driver only driver is the standard one given.

Graphics driver needed and update that's it all sorted now.
