    Trying to leave the Jefferson Memorial to turn off the flood control pump and it freezes every time. What is the solution?

    same thing trying to return from sub basement into jefferson memorial. i also have a game save inside the memorial, before the enclave arrives, which freezes while trying to load.. so i am basically stuck in the subbasement =(

    clearing the cache DID NOT HELP.

There is no solution yet, I have reported this problem to technical support and they are working on it. You can try this but there is no warranty that it will work. Explore the rest of the wasteland doing other side quests; come back later and complete the area.

Xbox360 fallout 3 freezes when I try to leave sub basement.. water purity quest

Fallout 3 has an issue with loading data from the hard drive(as does several other games). It causes the game to freeze more often than most games. Playing the game from the disk, rather than the hard drive should fix the problem. Feel free to continue to play it from the hard drive once the issue has cleared up.

In Fallout 3 on the 360, my game freezes in one spot.

Have you tried a different copy of the game. Like go to the movie store and rent one for test. If it still does it then it sounds like the the laser may be going out. I doubt that this would be the case. I feel that it is more the disk than the laser.

Try saving your profile and game to a memory card, clean out your cache and put the game info back on your drive. Is your hard drive too full? Also have you ever had the console fixed? any reading errors on your disk?
