I just updated my skyrim to the most recent version, and now I'm crashing to desktop randomly, with no error message. I disabled all my mods, even started a new game, still crashes. It doesn't crash anywhere specific, sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes 2 hours. thanks.
For Skyrim, it tends to be RAM being overfilled, and crashing everything. You might want to lower your video settings, and update your graphic card drivers, just in case
I know when I played Battlefield 3 it was randomly crashing on me. Then I uninstalled AVG and it worked fine after that. Check to see if your anti virus is messing with it. Try turning that off and/or getting rid of it for a day.
- patch Skyrim to the latest version
- upgrade video card drivers to latest stable version
- make sure your components are not overheating (if you're overclocking, tune down the overclock)
