Need some details on your computer, specs, operating system, what graphics card is supposed to be in there? You click the drop down menu for graphic adapter it doesn't show anything else? You can also check your device manager and see if your card is showing up.

I'm by no means a hardware expert but I'll do my best to help, until its fixed or somebody more knowledgeable comes along.

I'm no expert but I can help out a bit too. As a starter I'll tell you my laptop specs:

Lenovo G510
Intel i7 2.4 Ghz
Video Memory 3.1 GB

Video Card:
Intel HD 4600

AMD Radeon R7 M265 Series

Mine runs fine and smooth, though due to some mods I need extra RAM. For now I can say these are average gaming specs. New Vegas Vanilla runs fine especially with the unofficial patches and few fixes like NVAC(Anti-Crash) and No Stutter mod.

If you got doubts follow what Evmeister said. No harm checking the device manager. I hope that helped.

No matter the circumstances, no matter what happens around me, I never rely on luck. Because in life there is no such thing as luck, but the knowledge for advantages. In other words, we make our own luck.

Here's a good link with some common fixes for this problem:

Try this one:

Quote :
Added Game Cinematic Intro Crash PC Game Fix
“Game Crashes After Cinematic Introduction (Intro Scene)”
You may be missing an important DLL file, especially if you are on a newer version of Windows. This error may pertain very well to DirectX 9. Thanks to ABC for alerting us of this method.

1. Download the dx9d9.dll: HERE (Nexus)
2. Put the file in your game folder

If that doesn’t work, then try the following:

1. Load the “fallout.ini” and “fallout_default.ini” (be sure to set both to NOT Read-Only and make backups of both files)
2. Locate SMainMenuMovieIntro= and delete the following lines:

sIntroMovie=Fallout INTRO Vsk.bik

3. Save the files, then locate Fallout INTRO Vsk.bik and rename it to whatever you want (i.e. Fallout INTRO Vsk.bik BAK)

The problem should now no longer occur depending on what was causing the crash on your computer.
