Fallout 3 - using PC windows 7 - Have 2 CD's - in install - 2nd cd never asked for - have beaten game - no extra content available - Upon advice of telephone tech support(2 weeks ago) deleted game...


The second disk is basically just an expansion which is not needed for the original program to function and it isn't asked for. Insert the second disk and if the auto install doesn't initiate shortly after hit the windows icon in the bottom corner of the screen and select computer click on drive e which is the disk drive and look for an install or a program with .exe which is an execute command which initiates something normally a function of the program a screen should come up and there were 5 add ons to fallout3 make sure each box is checked and install. restart your pc and when you start fallout it should say something like it's reading downloadable content. When you load your current game you should get new sayings that you found a new radio signal etc.

Xbox 360 is loud - sounds like a loud fan motor. How can I make it run quietly?


You can try installing the game you want to play on the Xbox 360 Hard Disk, which reduces the motor noise to an extent, however there is no permanent way to fix the loud fan motor noise while playing the game with the disk in the drive.

Make sure you keep your Xbox 360 unit well ventilated, ensure it does not gather dust near the small vents and openings on the unit.

Unreadible Disk as soon as I put the disk in.


do other games work? if not your magnet in your xbox console disk drive may be defective and i would suggest returning it to Microsoft to have them look at it. If other games do work your fallout 3 disk may be severely scratched or the magnetic strip on it may have gotten demagnetized or otherwise damaged and will most likely need to be replaced...sorry

The Xbox 360 has a notoriously loud fan system. Usually you just have to turn up the volume on your tv a little, and once you're into the game you pretty much forget about the sound.

Fallout 3 Freezing Problems???


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.

Freezing all around the game on fallout 3 PC


when the game fallout 3 has even the tinyest scratch in the right place some parts of the map freeze because the game data is unreadable.

Frozen Fallout 3


I would download the game to the hard drive and it freezes a lot because its on open world rgp so it has to load a lot.. But if you download Fall Out 3 to your hard drive it will increase load times and reduce freezing.
