Most of the crashing and freezing in fallout 3 is sound or processor related. Here are the instructions on how to fix it
PATCH 1.7 REQUIRED !!!
Here is a quick and easy youtube vid demonstrating how to do fix the fallout 3 crashes
and subsaquently install mods
Note watch this in HD 720p full screen for a clearer understanding
Open up the fallout.ini file in: My Documents\My Games\Fallout3 (Fallout Prefs it is sometimes called)
Find the line:

Add another line after it and insert:
This will limit the game to 2 cores and prevent the engine bug from causing the game to freeze.
If you still experince problems try this
nstead of iNumHWThreads=2, change it to iNumHWThreads=1
Another thing which may be causing problmes is the autosave function
I have heard a lot of people say they crash as soon as they leave or enter a building/area
This should help a bit
Please remember that extensive hours of gameplay will crash the game but that happens anyway
hope this solves some problems
