Fallout: New Vegas Discussion
This thread is for posting solutions people have found for these problems. Please also write up what System you are running on so people can more easily relate to what might work for them.
I will point out the things that have fixed many issues for me:
Running Win 7 64-bit and Nvidia 285 gfxcard.
Nvidia cards in general: New Nvidia drivers released recently that includes many fixes for Fallout new vegas. Get them
Disable water effects -> made huge difference for me.
Launcher-> options-> water -> disable refraction/reflection put everything under water off or on low.
Things ive found that will make the game extremely unstable:
Using console to change your companions stats, like targetting bone in console and setav Strength 10.
Using the trainer: don't keep unlimited ammo on, made things crash more often for me.
Things that have helped other people:
Dll fix (didn't need it after nvidia update and water tweaking personally): www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34778
Stutter remover (works for some people, not so much on 64 bit): www.newvegasnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=34832
These last 2 are supposed to fix the issue with the engine using 64 hz and if you got 60 hz screen it would cause the stuttering according to some forums.
Crashing due to perks: If you wanna use the euclid's C-finder (archimedes). don't pick up the "Heave'ho" perk or use the console to remove it if you have. Game will CTD.
About the quests, yes its freakin annoying that you have to things like do X quest first before Y or X will fail for no apparent reason.
Ive started turning to the wiki before i do any quest to see what it might screw up if i do it at that time.
Updating. Have found that the glitch is massive NPC lag. Even when I lowered my resolution and graphics to 800/900 and graphical settings set to low, still get the npc lag glitch.
Looks like will have to wait for another driver update in Nov or Dec and hope it fixes this glitch or at least another patch for the game that will fix the npc lag glitch.

if thats the case that the new drivers made things worse just roll back to your last set of drivers. Thats if you didnt do a clean install?
Perhaps using the wrong version trainer on a patched game like i tend to do?
If new drivers are screwing you:
Did you do a clean install?
Rollback to older driver?
Also found: Install the DirectX drivers that came with the game, supposedly helps for a few as well, update your drivers anyhow.
Well it did give me two options, upgrade and keep settings or a full install. Will try it again with a full install.
