    Everytime i start a new game or load a save, the game loads and then the screen freezes or crashes and goes black, the only way to go out of that is by turning off the laptop. The game was running fine before.
    The problem happens when i try to use the dedicated graphics card (AMD), wich used to work fine before and still works in other games. When i use the integrated graphics card(Intel HD Graphics) the game doesn't crash or freeze, but there are constant fps drops making the game almost impossible to play.
    I know wich graphic card is active because of ENB.
    Does anyone know an solution?

    p.s: this happens even without any mods. Also after completely reinstalling the game.

    PC specs:
    Windows 10 64bits
    AMD Radeon R7 265m
    Intel HD Graphics 4000
    Intel i5 4210U 2.4ghz
    8GB RAM

    I have the same problem! Except with my Xbox 360. I'll load a save or try to play a game in general and it just freezes up. The internet keeps telling me that it doesn't have enough ventilation, but it does. If anyone know how to fix this id appreciate it
