Windows 7: Fallout 3 has stopped working

Fallout 3 has stopped working

So PC world just lost my £9,000 alienware gaming desktop and I am so for the time being I went out and purchased a £800 laptop to do for work, they have now informed me they have lost it for good, so I am stuck with a Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family, not good! so I thought long and hard about getting an assassin to kill them all but figured I would just take out the rage on fallout 3, so I Used system lab's "can you run it" program to find my specs are more than enough, above recommended levels, so I proceeded to install fallout 3, I got to the main menu, everything was fine, running smooth, until I started a new game then It loaded for 7.6.44 seconds and crashed with a pop up window "Fallout 3 has stopped working" There are three possibilities A) I Modded the hell out of it from the nexus forums, I'm no noob at mod-
ding so it is unlikely. 2 oh wait B) I could have installed an incorrect patch version or a corrupted one C) my specs are not good enough? Here are the system labs results and they are above recommendations levels.....

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit / XP Home sp3

Welcome to Seven forums. I vote for A or b or both can you try a new install of the original game? (before you Modded it?) Fabe Oh this might get more attention if you ask a mod to move it to gaming sectiion.
