Try and verify the integrity of the game cache through Steam. This will recreate any files changed in the installation folder, including those related to any real name fix you may have installed.

Yeah I have done that and i found out it was a hard drive failure so got an new, one and then transferred everything over to the new one yet it is still doing it, could it be something graphics related

Very easy to tell. Try moving the graphics to a temporary folder and see if FM loads without them.

Where exactly are you placing your graphics?

In my graphics folders

Can I see a screenshot of it? Just to be sure it's in the right place.

a) given that you've changed your user data folder, I'm assuming you've changed your Steam user data preferences. Is this correct?
b) secondly, I'd rename all the folders starting in lower case (i.e. graphics instead of Graphics). For some reason, FM seems to struggle occasionally with graphic folders filenames starting with upper case letters, for some reason.
c) finally, try removing the folders in that screenshot and loading FM to see if it loads. If it does, try adding them again one by one. That may help identify if there are issues specific to one or more of those folders

Re (a), if your graphics are not in My Documents, then you need to change your user data location. Simple steps on how to do so can be found here.
