Please HELP! I'm pulling my hair out!
Where to begin?
I'm experiencing full system lockup at random times while playing Skyrim. I've found a two reliable ways to trigger the Full System Hang: fiddling with RaceMenu options, or just running around the worldspace (or indoors) and spinning the camera. The crash happens within about 20 minutes of gameplay regardless of if I am actively trying to trigger it or just playing normally. But the game will run forever on the pause menu, no problem (tested it by leaving it alone for 2 hours while I ran some errands).
I first noticed the issue after updating my graphics card driver to be able to play Call of Duty Modern Warfare. I looked up how to disable any graphic overlays my driver software was applying, I disabled my weaker graphics card via the BIOS, and tried just about every guide i could find related to speed, stability and optimization, ini tweaks, etc for skyrim and am still experiencing the same issue.
Steam and Skyrim are installed in a folder I created [ C:\Program Files (Games)\ ] so there are no problems with permissions.
I've installed the latest versions of SKSE and ENB manually, and use MO2 for my mods.
I am using Mod Organizer 2, BethINI, ENB Reshade Manager, LOOT, TES5Edit (Quick AutoClean) and Ordenador.
All Plugins sorted with LOOT, dirty ones cleaned with TES5Edit QAC
I am 99.9% sure that the problem lies with my ENB settings.
The reason I believe this is because I ran Skyrim through the Skyrim Launcher (without Mod Organizer - so without any modifications besides TES5Edit Cleaning and ENB - and it hangs the system. But with [UsePatchSpeedhackWithoutGraphics=true ] I am stable for at least an hour that I tested for.
I have tried enabling Papyrus Logging, but with a Full System Hang the log just kind of ends without any indication of what may be causing problems.
I figure if we can get Vanilla Skyrim working with ENB, I can worry about my modded profile in MO2 later
So here's my PC's specs:
Here are my INI files for Vanilla Skyrim (running without MO2)
