Ok so still a little early for me to say it is 100% fixed but it is looking good so far.
Two days and no crashing. :)

Naturally, there are few things I hate more then, when I find a promising forum thread
(for what ever problem I may be having) and it ends in, "I fixed the problem." and nothing more. XD

PS: Still no crashing. :)

My sentiments exactly :thumbsup: it is a sad fact that there are people in the world that are quick to take but will share nothing :(

PS: Still no crashing. :)
This is good news and let us hope that things stay this way for you :)

Ok... I think the comp is all better. :)

Conclusion, if you are having something that looks like this crash,
try uninstalling and reinstalling your games. :)

There is one other thing I did and that is; in the Fallout: NV folder I found
their directX installer file and ran that. Not 100% sure which fixed the problem,
but it is another possibility. :)

I'll update this after a while longer just to confirm the problem is fixed, but
given the crashes nature of pretty much inevitable, I am fairly sure the crash has
been fixed. :)

Ps: Thanks again for the help :)

Sorry for the delay getting back to you PestoPosta :(

I note that your other topic has received a reply with a couple of suggestions that are worth following up.

Actually I have been meaning to ask; how would I go about updating the graphics card?
(If this is a new topic let me know, and a new one will be made. :))

You know how to update the graphics card as it is only the drivers, the games patch that the person suggests I have no idea of as I am not a gamer.

No, I mean jail break, for lack of better words, the drivers.
IE, get drivers that are actually up to date.
