    I think this is the hardware problem. You are missing required hardware or it is not installed properly. At Run->dxdiag.exe and check to see if DirectX features say OK!!

    I had similar problem with Commandos 3: Destination Berlin, which I was trying to run on onboard 4MB graphics card (S3 Graphics) :) later on, I installed NVIDIA Riva TNT (16 MB) - AGP and the game now runs fine.

    The Radion 9100 series of video cards is not listed in the FEAR readme.txt as one of the approved cards.
    Try updating to latest drivers if not done so already.
    Have no other programs running..no AV, etc.

    PS,
    You probably need moore ram also!
    I've got 3 gigs worth and never had a problem with running FEAR.

    If you are that crazy about this game, have a system reinstall. Alternatively, you should wipe out all traces of FEAR installation manually. (that includes registry entries too)

    Install the game again. I think FEAR has a system requirements checker.. run it before installing the game and then clean install FEAR. Hope it helps.

    Your system specs are on the edge of meeting the requirement for the game and Vista. Vista is a resource hog. You are better off sticking with XP until you upgrade your computer.
