    I think you may have to do that. Besides, if you uninstall and re-install Skyrim, your saves, data, etc. will be kept. There's most likely a way to uninstall and re-install just the DLC though.

    Not sure if it's been stated earlier, but you do have to be level 10 I believe in order for the guards to talk about the Dawnguard. So make sure that's the case before doing anything complicated.

    If you do have mods, you need to check the information that comes with each one to learn how to disable or uninstall them so that may be a route to take as well. Also, through Steam, make sure you verify the game data and it will check that everything your downloaded is in good working order.

    Typically if it's a mod issue, there's one certain mod that is having a problem with the latest patch or DLC or whatever. The problem is, the only way to figure that out is to shut them all off then bring them back in one at a time until you find the culprit so it's a process of elimination. First, I'd go to nexus or wherever you got your mods and read any updates for each mod. If there's a conflict with Dawnguard and a mod, I'd guess someone else has had a problem already since the DLC has been out long enough. There may be a new version of the mods you have that work properly.

    Okay I've done countless missions and talked to all kinds of gaurd and waited around. But not only is there no way of accessing the mission but I also cant make any dragon bone weapons. I'm curious is dawngaurd only available on the profile that downloaded it beacuse I had to use a different profile sense I couldn't remember my live password for the other profile?

    I found out that if you just talk to a guard they might mention something about dawnguard and then you get the quest.
