The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Quite a big problem
Alright. I have a huge issue. My game is basically working perfectly (I have a average laptop, not a big deal, but enough to play on high details) until at some moment the game just... It's something between freezing and fps dropping. It does work, but the speed is about -8 fps (not kidding. It takes like a 15 minutes for a guard to make a full step). Now You see, it happens at random places (mostly near city gates). I have tried playing without any mods (nope) and starting a new game (neither) and changing graphics detail doesn't do anything except for making game uglier (i mean, it doesn't help). It gives me a headache, and it's making the game unplayable. All the unofficial patches for some reason cause more bugs for me. So won't you please, please help me?

Since you have a laptop, it could be "Thermal Throttling" due to your computer overheating. Throttling is basically your computer slowing everything down so that it can cool down.

The overheating is most likely due to dust clogging your fans/vents [even if appears clean from the exterior]. I use a gaming laptop, and I am always sure to clean my fans/vents every couple months.

You can use a can of compressed air in a can, and use short burts to get the dust out. Remember, use shorts burts and be gentle.

thank you, i will try to see if it works
+1 for Thermal Throttling. You can use something like Gpu-Z or the laptop software to monitor the temperature. You can lower the graphic settings. Some laptops are just badly ventilated, no matter the dust on the fan/vents. You could also try a laptop cooling pad.
I have checked things and it seems that enerything has been cleaned recently. Also, other games work perfectly, even with much larger amounts of mods and better graphics. Lowering the settings gave me literally a second of smooth game, and than it froze again. I belive it's an issue strictly connected to skyrim...
well, i modded it a bit (...a lot...) but i'm using nexus mod manager, and boss... so there really should't be a problem.
