I've been trying to get this game to work for most of the day. :(
I've patched it, reinstalled, used the unofficial patch, tried different detail settings and everything, but it still won't work.
My Direct x is also up to date, as is my video card drivers.
The game just freezes when I click new game, or when I click exit.
I have to use the task manager to get out of it both times.
Could someone please tell me how to fix this? Here are my specs.
8 gigs of ram
AMD Phenom 2 x4 920 Processor(2.8Ghz)
Windows Vista home premium 64bit

No mods on? Fresh install? Latest Official patch?
Yep, did all of that.

My friend has Vista 64 bit and he pretty much has the same problem as you. Almost the same specs and he can't launch Fallout 3 either. Morrowind works just fine for him though.
So it might 64 bit.
Fallout 3 works pretty good for me, minus the random crashes, and such.

Find the game ".exe" right click, properties compatibility, tick run this program in blah blah blah, and set to windows xp... see if that's of any help
program, especially game .exes are found in x:\program files\game_publisher\game name... or x:\program files\game name
x: = drive onto which you installed the game...
sorry if i sound patronising, but some people may not know stuff mentioned above...
