Fallout 3 Freezing Problems???

I am currently in Rivet City on Fallout 3. After I load the game it freezes within about 10 seconds, which means I have to turn my xbox 360 off, and it also means I can't go on Fallout 3.
I haven't got xbox live yet but does this make a differance?
I have turned the screensaver off but it doesn't make any differances.
Any help, please?

Fallout 3 freezing is an unfortunately common problem. A lot of people have reported that clearing the game cache on your 360 will fix it, so that's what I would suggest you try first.

To do this:

  1. start up your 360, then take out the Fallout 3 game disc.
  2. Hold down the A button on the Player 1 controller
  3. Put Fallout 3 in your 360, then load the game
If this doesn't fix it, the next thing you could try is to clear the system cache. This will clear the entire cache for your 360, including the automatic updates (though downloaded content, save files, and user dats will be untouched).

To do this:
  1. Navigate to System > Memory
  2. Highlight the hard disk in the list and press Y
  3. Press X, X, LB, RB, X, X
If done right, you should see a message asking, "perform system maintenance?" Proceed with this, and it will clear all the cache data out and revert Fallout 3 back to version 1.0 (it should ask you to update once you load the game)

Hope this helps - I've had my share of frustration with Fallout 3 glitches.

    The code doesn't work (XXLBRBXX) but when i press Y it says clear system cache and it says when i press it "This will perform maintenance on your Xbox 360 storage device. Do you want to continue?" My question is since it says Clear System, does it mean It will delete Everything in my Hard drive?

On updated xbox360s the cache clearing is no longer a secret, here it is off Support Page from Microsoft.

Xbox Support

Xbox One Xbox 360 Getting startedAccessoriesAppsConnectionsContract subscriptionDownloadable contentError codesGamesKinectNetworkingSecuritySystemWarranty and serviceXbox LiveXbox MusicXbox Video Billing My account Xbox on other devices How to clear the cache on Xbox 360 Overview

The Xbox 360 system cache stores such items as game updates, system update installation packages, and gamer pictures of your friends. You can often resolve issues with your Xbox 360 by clearing the system cache.

The following are not removed when you clear the Xbox 360 cache:

  • Your gamertag
  • Content that you have downloaded
  • Game files
  • Console software updates.

Clearing the cache removes previously downloaded game updates. You must download these updates again the next time you play the game.
To clear the system cache

  1. Press the Guide button on your controller, go to Settings, and selectSystem Settings.
  2. Select Storage or Memory.

You good sir are a God, all my freezing problems have been fixed.

I've downloaded all the new addons though and i get the message saying "This save relies on content that is not availble" refering to the downloaded content.

Should I delete the content and then download it again? or would this male it worse?

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.

Lost my disk for fifa manager 10


Ever try the site: http://www.warez-bb.org ? Make an account (nothing personal). When you register, from the home page, go to Games, then scroll down to the search bar and search "Fifa manager 10". There are a bunch of links for it. I've been using the site for a while, it's pretty clean overall in my opinion.

Pogo wont load games


This should get you started on trouble shooting the issue.

https://help.ea.com/article/help-my-game-wont-load

This is a link to POGO support, read all the information and follow the instructions. Most the time this will fix issues with POGO.

I have had cases that Internet Exporer would not work no matter what we tried. In those cases I have downloaded and used Firefox (link for downloading below).

Well your disc is officially garbage because it's scratched beyond repair. Don't bother trying to fix your game disc. Do what I did. Go to sellitbroken.com and sell your game to them. They will give you good money for it.
