i7 2600K, GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 16 GB RAM, Windows 10.
What I'm facing
Walk towards Solitude (along the road, or from the direction of Morthal), or walk away East or Northeast from Markarth, and the game freezes. Try to quicksave near one of these places and it freezes. Stop near one of these places and try to fast travel and it freezes.
What I've already tried
- Disabled all mods (I use Nexus Mod Manager, and yes, I'm aware that the mods are different for this versus the original game).
- Reset graphics to 'optimum' as recommended by GeForce Experience.
- Tried compatibility mode for Windows 7 and administrator settings on the game executable.
- Verified that Steam itself isn't running in compatibility mode.
Anything else to try?
