Random Game Crashes?

So i restored my PC to factory settings and stuff. Now i only have 3 games. Modern Warfare 2, Fallout 3 and Minecraft. Well minecraft had a "Fatal Java" thing and i dont know what that is about. Fallout 3 crashes after like 20 minutes of gameplay but works perfectly everytime i restart it. Can someone help me? I've already tried reinstalling the games. Modern Warfare 2 has had no problems yet. Please help me with my other games though. I want hours of fun not 30 minute segments :(

More about random game crashes
  1. Fallout 3 is notoriously buggy, it used to crash every 20 minutes or so for me. I updated it to the most recent version and lowered graphics settings slightly which made it crash a lot less.

  3. fallout does need patches. but you really need to start looking at your event viewer. it will help you figure out more details on what is causing the crash...
    control panel
    admin tools
    event viewer...

    it will say what app crashed, what sub object like a dll went down to cause the crash... its not always that helpfull but its a good starting point.
  4. I'll try looking at the event viewer next time it crashed. But i was sure i got all the right fallout 3 patches. I'm going to check for more.
