I have Fallout 3 on my computer. It was working perfectly up until today. Now, no matter what I do. It will not launch. I click "play". The screen goes black and the game just doesn't start. I have to CTRL, ALT, DEL to exit the game. Interestingly, the CPU usage is 48%. So it's using one core to do something but there's nothing on the screen. Just black and the Windows 7 wheel spinning.
I installed it on Saturday and up until today it has been running perfectly. I've uninstalled and re-installed the game three times. Uninstalled and re-installed Games for Windows LIVE. I've patched it and re-installed the DLC. Even tried the d3d9.dll fix. Even tried it under XP and Vista compatability but still no success.
Is there anything else I can try? It's really infuriating because it's been working perfectly up until now and there's no sign of a problem at all. Any advice would be appreciated.
My system specs are:
Windows 7 Home Premium
AMD E-450 APU with 6320 HD Graphics (Dual Core 2.4GHz)
PS. Don't say my computer specs are not sufficient because it has been working perfectly until today.
