    Hey! So I just purchased the Dawnguard DLC to add onto my Skyrim experience, but have met some major disappointment :/ I've gotten far enough that I've become a Vampire Lord which was sweet and all, but now every time I enter a new room or fast travel, MY GAME CRASHES! This happened to me almost five minutes after each time I would reset my xbox and try again, and I'm at my wits end. After spending 3 hours with customer support from xbox on the phone, we accomplished nothing and they suggested that I try these forms to help voice my problem. So if anyone knows how I beseech you: Is there any way that I can fix this constant crashing, and if not, is Bethesda making some sort of patch to help solve problems like mine?

    Did you clear out your system cache? I was freezing up before I could even get into the game. (you know that first loading screen and it would freeze up) You might have already tried this, but you didn't mention it in your post.

    Yeah me and the guy I called tried almost every basic troubleshooting technique in the book, including clearing my system cache and redownloading the Dawnguard expansion time and time again. But thank you for the suggestion!

    Hello, I am new to this forum because I am at my wits end. Ever since I downloaded the Skyrim update that added the mounted combat (which is TOO COOL, BTW), my game freezes up within minutes of playing. I have the original XBOX 360 from 8-9 years ago. The XBOX plays beautifully with rare freezes until I got that last update. Today, I purchased Dawnguard and now I cannot even load up Skyrim....period. It freezes on the initial load up as soon as that box "Loading downloadable content. Please wait" appears. I am just a wee bit pi&&ed. I have emailed Bethesda just now but I am hoping someone here can lend a hand.
    Thanks Babs13

    Uninstalling it from my hard drive seemed to do the trick

    Well, it COULD potentially be the disc. I remember the first time I bought a BRAND NEW Oblivion GoTY Edition for my X Box, but I wouldn't be able to leave the Kvatch Oblivion Gate. Getting a new disc fixed THAT. I'd say to try using the warranty on your game if you still have it. If that doesn't work... You could have internal harddrive damage.
