Here is a link to my troubleshooting blog.
http://s1.zetaboards.../4751769/1/#new
This is updated from time to time so come back later for more.

Look specifically at the 'Data Files Greyed out' topic in the Skyrim section

If you use any of this and have some success - or even if nothing works - please post back here what you did that worked or didn't work. That kind of information can be invaluable to other members having the same or similar problems - And to me in fixing any problems in the blog.

Did you use the download with NMM? or the Manual download option?

If you used manual there is another step needed to get the mod into the game (see the manual installation section in the blog)
If you used either, did you check the mod in the MODS page in NMM (works the same with both manual & NMM downloaded file) - to get the check mark, click on the name and not the box.

Some mods don't have an esm component and will not show in the list when they are active - These are usually texture changers. Look for them in the game.

Any mod that is a 'modders resource' will not work by itself. These are intended to be used by mod creators and not users.

Give us a list of the mods (instructions in the blog on where to get a copyable list)

The greyed out has nothing to do with NMM. It is the DATA menu selection in the main game menu. If that is grey - when you place the pointer over it, it should change to white. If it does not, then you cannot click on it and that means that your game is not set up to use mods. Follow the instructions in the blog to fix that.
