Skyrim has A LOT of glitches. Restarting your computer won't help. This is a game issue, nothing else. Complete the quest and travel to another town, like Winterhold or something and save it there.

Have you installed a MOD recently? If so, this may be your problem. Uninstall the mod and rollback of of your latest saved game that didn't include the mod. This may also fix it.

Any save or auto-save after opening the Barrier in the Dark Tower above Dawnstar causes a crash-to-desktop in my game. I've found no way to get past this bug. Also the game will randomly crash after this point during combat or anywhere an autosave would normally be triggered.

Yes, I'm having this same issue. Just wait until the quest is through, travel away, and you should be good to save.

Is it the bad dreams quest in Dawnstar? Because if it is, I'm having the same exact problem. Accept for me, its when I wait too.

What he said. Run that quest without saving until you are out in nightcaller temple, travel elsewhere and you should be able to save. It's a bug in the Waking Nightmare(or whatever that daedric quest in nightcaller temple is called) when trying to save at certain points toward the end of the quest.

Run that quest bad dreams quest from after you release the miasma in the dreamstate without saving until you are out of nightcaller temple, travel elsewhere and you should be able to save.

Hi had same problem with vaermina quest. Found solution on internet. This is what to do. Don't drink potion or do the dream part of the quest at all. Delete any saved game that has this part of the quest in. Walk back to the mystic barrier with eradur. Open console type tcl then close. This toggles off collision command which stops character walking through walls and floors. Then immediately walk through mystic barrier and pick up soul gem. this completes the dream part of the quest without the glitch forming. Open up console again and type tcl again. This will toggle collision back on so you can play the game properly. Carry on without any problems. Obviously a bit of gameplay action is lost because all priests and orcs have disappeared except for the 2 priests guarding the skull. But worth it to avoid the teeth gnashing angst.
