Windows 7: Fallout 3 stopping when starting a new game.

Fallout 3 stopping when starting a new game.

I know there is already a thread for Fallout 3 but i noticed that most of the corretions for it were either for the 64 bit (i have 32 bit) version or for the game launcher.
My problem is when i click yes to start a new game the loading screen comes up for antwhere between 2-5 seconds and then stops working.
I have tried different compability modes, running as an administrator, and giving all of the fallout files full write read permission. Nothing has worked.

I have Left 4 dead and Battlefield 2 complete collection, and they both work fine. I really want to play Fallout 3.

Any help is more than appreciated.

-Re-Install Fallout 3 as an admin
-Install the latest patches from Bethesda
-Set the game to run as an administrator always and also in compatibility mode for Windows Vista SP2
-Play (hopefully)

Did that and it still didn't work.

Could it be that i have an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile?

Videos keep stopping and starting
Hi no expert at all with all this, but from what I can gather I think Adobe Flash is the cause of videos always stopping or crashing. I'm running Win 7 64 bit on Firefox but understand that Firefox is a 32 bit browser, also being told by Adobe that I've got the latest version yet everything still...
Stopping and starting when typing
Hi folks. During the last couple of weeks I find that my curser stops flashing while I am typing, mainly when I am on the internet, and then starts again. This is a nuisance as I have to constantly look at the screen and wait for the curser to start flashing again before I can continue to type. I...
