Fallout 3 .xlive.dll error
I was just starting Fallout 3 then I waited until its done checking my video card for minimum requirements. Then when I press the "PLAY" button, it says
"This application has failed to start because xlive.dll was not found.Re-installing the application may fix this problem". I reinstalled it but It still says the same error. Does this mean I need to update my video card?

Fallout 3 has xbox live online connectivity.
That dll is probably associated with that.
Browse the fallout 3 CD for the xbox live
applictaion and try reinstalling that.

Your problem may be associated with Windows Live or associated part of it. I have heard of similar problems after people have uninstalled it.

Might be able to sort it by re-installing / updating from here..
