I can look around, but I can't jump, I can't attack and I can't switch from third-to first person. I brawled with Vilkas at Jorrvaskr to prove my worth for the Companions, and when I left dialogue, I couldn't move.

I can't open any menus, except for settings, and quest. I tried quicksaving and reloading, and I tried restarting, but neither worked. Can I get some help? I'm playing on a laptop PC.

It's a bug. Reload a save from before you fought Vilkas. – SevenSidedDie Apr 28 '13 at 17:04
If you just fought Vilkas, then you're outside, behind Jorrvaskr. Fast travel somewhere. Dragonkeep would work. – DCShannon Feb 19 at 19:50

For those playing on a PC, try these console commands to attempt to fix the issue. From the UESP Wiki, "Skyrim - Glitches" article:

If you're not playing on a PC, you'd have to load an earlier save before the glitch happened as console commands can only be used on the PC.

If you are using a mod named FNIS Custom Animations, it can cause that problem, run the FNIS generator and it will work again normally

I don't get why some mods have such stuff like this? – Jim Oct 11 '15 at 18:14
