Well there are a few things to check make sure your drivers are all up to date make sure DirectX is up to date. It would help to know what hardware you have. Also make sure Fallout 3 is up to date. And is Fallout 3 stand alone or the Steam version.

What kind of hardware are you running? Make sure all of your drivers are up to date. You may have to re-install the game. Files could have been corrupted on initial installation.

Edit: Just saw that Bryan posted pretty much the same thing as I was typing. +1 to what he said.

Fallout 3 is notorious for locking up on Windows 7. This is a problem with Fallout 3, not your computer.

Please see this guide:

for advice on how to tweak Fallout 3 to reduce some of the freezing issues

Try the tips above, ensure your game is up to the latest version. Ensure you have no mods interfering with your game start-up (only load the fallout and possibly DLC packages). Install the "Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch" http://fallout3.nexusmods.com/mods/3808/ You may also want to consider a cell-buffer purge mod for Fallout 3.

-I've got an almost reliably stable, fully modded steam version of Fallout 3; It sucks to approach reliably playable.-
