windowed mode

plug out second monitor

update to 10.3

disabling all dlcs

starting over from the begging


turn off all programs

I think i was having same problem, try this;
apdate DIRECTX
download patch from fallout side,
that should fix you up..

Of the patch doesn't fix it, uninstall and reinstall your drivers for your sound and video card. I had an issue where Fallout 3 would crash upon startup (when it worked just fine before that) and it was due to the sound drivers being corrupted or something. I uninstalled the drivers and allowed Windows to find the latest ones and my problems have cleared up since.
