CTD On trying to Enter the collage
Every time I talk to the door woman at the Collage of Winterhold and do her test to enter, the game instantly crashes to desktop, thereby completely breaking the entire Mage questline, the Lost Legend quest and potentially breaking the main quest too.

I have no idea if this is mod related, but if anyone is experiencing the same problem or similar, does anyone have a fix for this. I've already had to deal with a game breaking bug, to do with spotty implimentation of the Dragonborn DLC preventing dragons from burning up, blocking the main quest. I have a horrible suspicion that a great many issues are related to Dragonborn

Are you using the unofficial skyrim patch and all the unofficial patches for whichever DLCs you have?

I am afraid that it is not an issue with Dragonborn DLC, but result of bad load order from your part - unless there is some third party mod messing up with your game. There is a good change that your current problem is related to that as well.

Top of your loading order should look like this, acronyms meaning unofficial patches for respective DLCs:

Skyrim.esm
Update.esm
USKP
Dawnguard.esm
UDGP
Hearthfires.esm
UHFP
Dragonborn.esm
UDBP
[Other ESMs]
Official hi-res DLC
UHRP
[Other ESPs]

Edit: Fixed typos... don't know why I have been doing them a lot lately.

Listen to Refs answer, Mod order is as much of a problem as mod conflicts. If you haven't already then dowload BOSS, run it. It is a program that checks your mods, then sorts them for correct order. It will alsopoint to unkown mods, problem mods which you might have to deal with directly, but these are fewer than the rest by a long shot.

I've used BOSS and it still doesn't work. It does get further, allowing me to actually enter the collage, but upon trying to enter the main hall to start the quest to get into Saarthal, the game CTD's again.
