Fallout New Vegas Closing

I am about half way through my first Fallout New Vegas play though, including all the DLC. Is there any way to make it stop closing randomly? I have faced this issue for about 50 hours of playing. It closes during load screens, and freezes from time to time.

 

In an effort to keep the game feeling like a vanilla play through, I have tried using the script extender with the stutter removing mod only. I also used the 4gb patcher. I have tried using compatibility mode for Windows XP service pack 3. I have tried tweaking some ini entries. Nothing seems to stop these random closes. 

 

All of my drivers are up to date, and this is the only game in my library that I am faced this kind of issue.

 

I have tried GOG, Epic, and Steam versions of the game. I couldn't get the Epic Games version to go past the first cut scene before you wake up in the doc's house. GOG and Steam needed a d3d9.dll file dropped into the install folder to get past this point. The dll didn't effect the Epic Games version.

 

A friend of mine has told me he has had zero issues with his RTX 20 series GPU. This leads me to believe it may be more of an issue with the Radeon RX 7000 series.

 

Any suggestions to fix stability would be very much appreciated.

Surely you know there's better luck finding an answer using other methods and tools. Search engines, specified forums, AI. Personally i don't have a solution to offer.

One thing i like to do though is checking pcgamingwiki for every game. It will tell you of possible bugs and fixes.

For a second, I thought this was going to be a post about FA: NV shutting down completely. i.e., no longer playable for anyone. 😅

 

Sorry to hear you're having issues with it... @redlightuser's link may be helpful? I found that some of newer drivers may be causing issues (hate to see it), and some users have rolled all the way back to 23.12.1 for the fix. Not sure if that's something you'd want to do, though. 

I found the newest drivers fixed the issue. Now at times I have input lag that I have to figure out.
