Hello, I have an issue with Skyrim for a long while. I have 2 laptops with identical mods installed (except some more texture replacers on the more powerful one.). On the weaker one I have no problems but on the other one, which is better in every way, I have nothing but trouble. No matter what I do the game freezes and crashes at random, even when doing nothing specific like walking over to Belethor while in his shop or even when I am in Breezehome and just walk over to the door to exit. It does it without any reason and EVERYWHERE not just a single location, Whiterun, Riverwood, Riften, you name it. Even in dungeons. I have tried to fix it for months but to no avail. I came to the conclusion that mods are making the game unstable because it works fine without any mods, so I made my very own crash test in one of the most problematic spots, on the road outside Hillgrund's Tomb before the bridge, facing north. The test was to run from Hillgrund's Tomb to the Windhelm Stables, which for me has several (3-5) freeze spots. The thing is that this is a disappearing problem and it's hard to find out which mod is the source of freezing. I started with only the DLCs and USLEEP. I ran on the path 10 times and it didn't freeze. Afterwards I enabled 25 .esps at a time and repeated the test. Everything was fine until I reached 75 activated .esps. The game just started to misbehave, it froze on the 8th run of the test and it just went worse the more esps I had activated. Now here is the weird thing. The game wasn't freezing when I had 50 esps activated but it did on the 8th run of the test when I had 75 esps activated. So, I thought that maybe these 25 esps I have last activated were the problem, I deactivated them and activated the next 25, and this time the game froze again, this time on the 10th run instead of the 8th! As if the the game doesn't want to have more than 50 mods installed at a time.
This issue is driving me crazy, I can't play the game properly as I'm always paranoid that it will crash the following minute.
Here is my setup:
PC: Asus X550J
CPU: Intel Core i5-4200H 2.80 GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M, 2GB
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate
ENB: none (ENBoost only)
Load order is sorted by LOOT.
SKSE version: 1.7.3
File verification didn't work.
Video card driver: 362.00 (current)
All of the files that need cleaning have been cleaned with TES5Edit.
This is happening no matter if I run the game in borderless or fullscreen mode, if ENBoost is turned on or not, if the anti-virus is active or not, if I revert to vanilla ini or not. Please help me if you can, I tried to post as much information as possible.
