Computer wont run fallout 3

I bought Fallout 3: Game of the Year Edition for my Windows 7. The case says the minimum requirement for the game is Windows XP or Vista. I was able to install the game, but when I try to start the campaign, the game locks up at the same spot everytime and freezes my computer. Do you have any idea to what might be happening, and what can I do to fix it?

  1. Hi :)

    PC specs ???

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Ya we need your systems spec's. Does this do it on all game or just the one?
  3. System specs please. Also while Fallout 3 can be played with Win 7, per Bethesda, it is not officially supported by Win 7.

    It's just with Fallout 3, I bought MW3 and it works just fine. Where would I find my specs, are they listed in the manual.

  7. Lenovo win7, intel core processor i5-2430, 2.40GHz. 6 GB RAM
  8. We need to know the graphics card.
  9. Or does your laptop have a graphics card?
    Most likely it's integrated and the reason why it's crashing.
    Fallout 3 has got issues when trying to run the game on a system having inbuilt graphics.
