If it gives an error box on start up, what does it say ? Or does it just crash to desktop during launch up ?

I ran into an issue running Fallout 3 on Windows 8 a long time ago.

I launched the game using the Fallout Mod Manager and it came up with an error, so then I when into FOMM's install tweaker and checked off "Use fake xlive dll".

Haven't had a problem since.

Are you by any chance running Fallout 3 off of a quad core system?

Fallout 3 doesn't play well with quad core processors.

Here is a commonly used fix for that problem, http://www.sevenforums.com/gaming/20199-fallout-3-windows-7-w-quad-core.html

The engine simply doesn't support quad cores, it did prior to the 1.1 patch but once that patch came out support for them was dropped.

The only other suggestion I can think of off the top of my head is to disable GFWL, if you have not already done that.

I have both the retail GOTY edition and the original version, I've only run into that one aforementioned error, and that was fixed with the fake live dll.

At this point the problem you're experiencing could be anything from a driver issue to a hardware issue.

To be honest I'm at a bit of a loss with this so I wish you good luck.

At this point all I can suggest is to search for problems similar to yours on Google. Maybe you'll come across something that I missed.

Just re-enable GFWL with that program and it should revert it back to before.

On a side note, most people who need their Fallout 3 fix use TTW for FNV. It's a mod that basically merges F3's content into NV. This allows you to play Fallout 3 on the slightly more modern NV engine. A few others here use it and are happy with what it has to offer.

Sorry I couldn't help solve your problem.
