Hey, new here posting out of desperation as I have been unable to use the might of google to solve this problem.

Originally I thought this was a problem with Fallout New vegas, after the game crashed, and every save I loaded started to crash about a few seconds in, no exceptions, however after updating my drivers running a virus check and reinstalling the game I still couldn't get anything to work.

Writing this off as a fallout problem I quickly found that any other game I attempt to run from L4D2, down to League of Legends is now suffering the same problem. Minimum system specs are all reached and I'm not sure how to proceed, any advice would be great.

I had this problem with battlefield 2 also. Try running the game as administrator. To do this first right click the game on the desktop and choose properties, then check the box that says run as admin. Should work, if it doesn't then contact the support for the game and they should tell you. Hope that helped!
