Skyrim pc Frozen randomly

My skyrim will just freeze in the middle of gameplay for no reason, but the music will still be playing, and when I go to task manager, it says that the game is not responding any ideas?

  1. I used to have this problem on my laptop as well, I tried a couple different things and pretty much all of them seemed to fix the problem;
    -Try running as admin
    -Repair local files in Steam
    -Update drivers
    -uninstall any mod that injects code externally
    -depending it it's location oriented, try revert save?
  2. as far as i know, it's completely random, unless it has something to do with cells that have mods installed in them, what do you mean by repair local files? And what sort of mods would have code externally?

    Yeah I have also seen it crash from the first thing you mentioned in combination with like a corrupted mod.
    -In Steam go to Library and right click on Skyrim. Properties > Local Files (tab) > Verify Integrity of Game Cache
    -Ah lots of mods that need to run scripts in game (before they implemented Creation Kit and Papyrus) a few off the top of my head are FXAA Post Processing Injector. ENB maybe anything that adds post processing that must be injected into the executable from externally.

    Hope that helps
  4. Thanks, I'll try the cache fix. Any other theories or ideas will be greatly appreciated, though
