In FO3 on my old desktop i had to do something special to get the console to pop up, and i was wondering on my laptop (windows 7 64 bit) if i need to do the same i tried pressing the tilda ~ key in game but it doesn't do anything. I don't know if there is a enable console button in settings but was wondering if anyone had to do something extra to get their console to open up? --- Prof. Membrane: "Son,There better not be any walking dead up there!"

That sounds very familiar (the ini file suggestion) and I'm guessing you are talking about this file:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\fallout new vegas\Fallout_default.ini
Problem is that I only have an option called bAllowConsole and it is already set to 1. bAllowConsole=1
I looked at the other topics about the Infrared device/ehome and I don't have any devices like that and none appear in Device Manager so I'm sure that's not the problem... --- The most objective point of view is a cynical one.
I figured out what the problem was for me - I was playing with the xbox 360 controller and apparently that disables the ~ key. As soon as I unplugged the controller and started the game up the ~ key worked.
I suspected that might be the problem but at the same time I didn't really think it could be because most of the other keyboard buttons still work...thanks for the suggestions everyone.
