Fallout 4 PC Crash Fix

Fallout 4 came out today and if you have it on PC you might have run into some issues.  One big one is a bug where the game will crash right to desktop after you hit START on the start menu.  Here are some things to try:

  1. Make sure your nVidia and AMD drivers are up to date.
  2. Uninstall ANYTHING that is running that could mess with the game.  Unfortunately, I found that McAfee was causing a crash on a machine I fixed this morning.  As a general rule I would recommend not using McAfee and using something like AVG (http://free.avg.com/us-en/homepage)
  3. Try running in Windowed-Borderless Mode

 

These are just some quick ideas and I’ll be updating this with more information once I get some time.
