Fallout 3 keeps freezing, simple as that, help?

  1. My machine thats well above the requirements to run fo3

    CPU: Intel Core i7 870
    RAM: DDR3 SDRAM10 GB
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H55-UD3H
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 SE
    I just bought it through steam
    and im running directx11

    but intermittently as I play it freezes, lowering the quality seems to make it worse if anything.

    help really is appreciated

Accepted Answer

  1. First off, Fallout 3 doesn't use DX11 so that's not the issue. You could have some sort of virus/malware that is causing the problem. Try turning off your virus scanner, and run some malware scanners as well. Try de-fragging your HDD too. If none of that works re-install the game.
