    Fallout 3 will not launch on my computer. I have Windows 7 64 bit

    I recently installed Fallout 3: GOTY from Steam, and tried to boot it up, it didn't work and would go to the "Fallout 3 has stopped working" message with no error.

    Then, after a restart, a patch started downloading. The patch was fine, I played maybe three times, ultra high graphics- so my settings or computer aren't the problem, and then it froze in Super Duper Mart.

    "No big deal," I thought, and shut the game off to go play something else.

    Well, now it won't launch. It hasn't launched for two weeks. I can't find a solution ANYWHERE online. My head is going to explode.

    I don't have ffdshow or whatever, I don't know what to do.

    I just need help.

    Please? : (

    if you have a fx proseccor try downloading this and run it everytime you start up steam
    the orochi-ceg is a fix on the bulldoser ''bug'' that makes fx proseccors not able to launch steam games
