Steam - the game doesn't launch

Post » Tue Jan 19, 2016 6:33 pm


I want to play Fallout 4 but wanted to get familiar with the series so I purchased Fallout 3 - Game of the year edition on Steam for my PC.

When I load the game I get a message which says it will check and automatically adjust my video settings (which it sets to Ultra High). When I click "Play" the menu will disappear and nothing else will happen.

I've tried reinstalling the game, changing video settings, restarting my computer but nothing is working.

Has anyone experienced this before/can provide a fix?

Some additional info:

I'm using Windows 7 64bit

Graphics card is: GeForce GTX 750 Ti

Thanks in advance!

Please follow the steps in the sticky since that does help resolve a lot of the issues with getting the game to run.

If you still need help please run a dxdiag.exe and post the full report in spoiler tags.
