however, after it is patched up, and limited to two cores, the game runs for HOURS on end without issue...
I got the same problem [i am running toshiba p500 windows 7 64 bit core i5 520m 2.4Ghz auto-overclocks to up to 3.2Ghz (2 physical cores 4 logical threads (that cannot in any way be disabled not in bios not in reg nowhere to be found that i could think of)) with 3 GB DDR3 system ram and a geforce GT 330m (core clock 575-735 Mhz, shader clock 1265-1500 Mhz) with 1 GB DDR3 dedicated ram clocked between 790-966 Mhz as well as 320 GBx2 hdd's] my desktop wich runs amd phenom 9500 quad with no hyperthreading + 8800 GTS runs fallout 3 just fine but when i run it on my laptop with hyperthreading fallout 3 only works if i disable the second physical core(leaving one core with two logical threads)and when i have all cores running i cannot set affinity for fallout3.exe fast enough before it crashes (about 12 seconds of in game time) and my program that creates an affinity profile for all executable programs(CPU-Control) does not recognize fallout 3
also trying to set core affinity through taskmgr with the game minimize while in main menu not only crashes fallout 3 but also taskmgr???
not attached is a screen shot of the error message for there was no error message other than fallout 3 has stopped working..... windows does not check for solutions
attached is detailed specs of my system (page 1 processor at a glance, page 4 hardware monitor, page 6 graphics hardware at a glance
another strange fact- call of duty modern warfare 2 runs perfect at full settings and at 1080p through hdmi and no problems with any other games
I have already beaten the game but i love playing it but hate having to restart my computer go into bios and disable core 1 and when it is only running on one core with 2 threads all other programs are laggy as well as system services
