Skyrim keeps crashing
Problem has been fixed. Please everyone go home and intend your families. I'm sure they miss you more than ever after this dreadful war against the Spartans.

ive had similar crashes with fallout 3 and oblivion all i did was go into data files and untick the Master ESM in this case Skyrim.esm
Edit: upon looking in the data file Skyrim.esm appears to be hidden
Edit 2 you could always try the Unofficial Skyrim Patch here on the worskshop

99% of the time, especially if you mod skyrim, crashes are due to either Mod load order or incompatability. Either your going to have to remove the mod that caused the issue, normally the last mod or mods installed at the time that it worked. Or your going to need to mess with your load order.

The more mods the more issues. Im sitting on 170+ my game is playable, but i crash every 10-15 mins. I constantly find my self moving mods around to keep my game going. and currently have a char thats almost 130 with 170 mods.

Not in every case, but in some cases a mod will work fine early on but the way skyrim works is the longer your game and the more you have done, the bigger your save file gets. When it loads it has to load what you have done and implement the mods. Because of this, a mod might work early but later on that mod might become unstable and cause crashes.

For example. Towns and Villigas Enhanced mods, they are great. Love those mods. But when I hit 100, every door I opened, every city I traveled to would crash my game. I was able to get around this by trying other ways to get into the towns or keep trying over and over till it loaded. But that got anoying and now I have had to remove them and my game has had half as much issues.. So Keep this in mind.

I'm not sure what you use to manage your load order, me personally I have never had luck with a program trying to manage my mods. I have always done them my self. It's a headache and you almost spend just as much time messing with mods trying to get them working as playing the game. but doing them your self will make it a lot easier in the future to figure out what caused an issue or even to know where to put a mod. It helps a lot when you know where the mod should be and then if there is an issue to move it around from there.

Theres no exact way to tell mod order. But basically.
Graphics mods
Small Mods
Non Important mods
town enhancement mods
Added towns/homes mods
Quest mods
Important Mods

Some mods, if they both change 2 of the same things, and are compatable. you will need to decide which you want more and then the more important change needs to be near the bottom. This is just a basic idea of where mods should go. Some mods this will not be the case. But this is the general rule of thumb I go by and it works for me. If you place a mod at the very bottom and it still doesnt work, chances are its bad. Biggest thing pay attention to what each mod does. it might change something that you think is small, but might actually be something that effects a whole lot more.

Ok gonna throw my two coin blanks in here. I am seeing a lot of people with a problem similar to mine except for one thing. The only mod I have tried is the high res pack from steam., It was every fifteen minutes to a crash and computer reset with the system wanting to restart in safe mode every time. Now after a hard drive crash, new hard drive, new windows 7 install and fresh game install my system crashes barely two minutes into the game.

I am at wits end here. I don't understand how a non modified game with 160 hours of playtime suddenly goes so wonky it is unplayable. I suspect it is steam, since my other steam games crash the system too, though I can play them a few minutes longer.

I tried to play without steam. It sorta worked, played a few minutes longer but couldn't interact with anything except doors, then it crashed to desktop. Thought I was making progress, but one time is all it worked. Since then skyrim just becomes non responsive when I try that.

NEW PROBLEM: I deleted all my mods but the game keeps crashing. It says something with details can not be found.

deleting them will still cause u issues, if our using nexus mod manager to put in mods u have run it to allow it to uninstall them first then it run again after

in future "never delete mods" always uninstall them first then delete them

if theres specific mods u want let me know i can suggest u some, i came back skyrims recently i run of games to play for time being and its been slow two months in gaming world.

Really having a blast especially using mods.

That depends if your deleted mods have left some "orphan" scripts which causes the crashing issue, even starting a new game the problem persists with those scripts. So you solved nothing by removing those mods.
