    When playing Fallout 1 the screen will sometimes go black...the game is still running though.
    I can move the mouse and as I do it cleans the screen back up...like an etch a sketch.
    Opening the Pip or any other thing ( char, inventory) also cleans the screen .
    Other then that the game runs fine...

    And it doesn't happen all the time....it might be several times in a row or once every 4 hours.

    Game patched no mods
    GTX 174. drivers
    latest DX 9 version.
    All other drivers,bios, software and Windows are up to date..

    Changing to 16bit and lowering desktop resolution haven't helped
