Headline says it all. Launching both of these games makes my gomputer go into the black screen and I have to hard reset it.
I have tried the usual fix attempts, such as running as administrator and running in different compatibility modes but it still keeps doing that.
This question / problem has been solved by snarfbucketimage
My cousin has had similar problems with older games on his computer, like KotOR 1 and 2. But both required different fixes, usually tied to specific files in the program folders of each game.
This is one of the reasons I am glad I still use XP. Although I am sure you don't wanna hear that... sorry. I'm sure there is a solution though, I've seen people with this problem on other forums in the past.

Testocles: Headline says it all. Launching both of these games makes my gomputer go into the black screen and I have to hard reset it.
I have tried the usual fix attempts, such as running as administrator and running in different compatibility modes but it still keeps doing that.

Well, first the usual Vista/Win 7 fixes: Install all your games outside program files folder (different partition/drive prefered if possible) and/or disable UAC. UAC is major pain in the ass with pre vista (and many post vista) games and software and can cause problems with both installing and running them.
Next, install sfall and set graphics mode to 4 (dx9 fullscreen). Remember to pick correct one for each game.
Next dowload and install high resolution patch from NMA and play around with it's settings to see if any work.
If none of the above work (test game(s) after each step), get back to us and provide system specs to help with troubleshooting.

Testocles: Didn't work but thanks anyway.

You tried both fallout 1 & 2?
If only fallout 1, the problem might be that sfall (and maybe high res patch) might not support the censored english version of the game (gog version).
To change FO1 to US uncencored version, install 'Fallout Patch 1.2 ENG TeamX' followed by 'Fallout 1 Children Patch' and (this is not needed but it does fix lot of bugs) 'Fallout Patch 1.3.4 ENG TeamX '. You can find these using the NMA I provided above. After this, try running the game and if it does not work try installing the high res patch again and setting COLOUR_BITS=8 to COLOUR_BITS=16 in f1_res.ini in fallout folder (just in case return the graphics mode to 0 in ddraw.ini).
If this none of these work, I'm running out of ideas. Only reference to your problem is in a topic in NMA forums about Color Depth and Hardware limitations (new hardware not supporting 8bit/256 color mode) but most people here and elsewhere have been able to run the game (with video/color corruption) or gotten regonisable error message. The soltion provided by Timeslip (creator of sfall btw) are same as I've already given.
Edit: sfall also does not like compatibility mode so you may need to remove the compatibility settings. And just to be sure you did try both 256 colors and 640x480 compatibility modes before?

I don't think the problem is in the hardware because I got Fallout 1 & 2 running flawlessy in Vista Ultimate 32-bit. But then I installed Vista Ultimate 64-bit and you know the rest...

If you haven't figured it out yet . . . . . .
Try disabling your firewall. I had this exact problem on a nearly identical machine. Not only for Fallout but for every game installed on the machine, AND DOSbox. Disabling my firewall (Comodo in this case) did the trick. If you're paranoid, just disable your network card, then enable it when you're done.

It's working and it looks like we have a winner! Disabling Comodo firewall helped. But I noticed that if you don't want to disable your firewall, you can put fallout.exe and fallout2.exe to Comodos trusted programs list (Do the same in Defence+ just in case). It also helps to prevent blackscreen and you can still have your computer secured.
Thank you and merry Christmas!
