I have fallout 3 with all of the addon content and latest patch. I can not run the program normally as it will freeze randomly in game and quite quickly. My computer can run it on full graphics smoothly and finely yet however the game freezes randomly.
Here is some info regarding my computer: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Intel Core i3 processor 530, 6gb ddr3, integrated intel gma hd graphics (i added in a geforce 8600 GT graphics card), 1 tb HDD, dvd super multi drive, multi-inone digital media manager, realtek high definition audio.
I see people had problems with multi processors and were able to fix it HOWEVER! I am using a single core processor and get freezing problems, what happens is when i start playing the game itll freeze within the next minute or five minutes or even 10 seconds!
I have tried running it on compatibility mode on windows 7 vista service pack 2 and with run as administrator yet it did not work, i also tried windows xp service pack 3 compatibility mode as administrator yet no avail. I also noticed some people think it is a permissions issue regarding the documents/mygames/fallout3 and they all have full permissions in fact my computer and account has full permissions to everything on my computer so I found that to not be the issue. I have also tried the suggestion I saw someone had with a similar but not same error with changing the theme to basic, still did not help. I think it is the 64 bit, if possible is there a way to change it to 32 bit to run the game and then switch it back when im not? The game is useless not working ): I hope I can fix this
Also if internet has anything to do with it im using t1 fiber optic cable
It is disappointing that many still have this issue and the game developers have yet to have a easy patch update for this problem.
