Have you changed any mods in your save game?? Are all your system's drivers up to date?

i dnt think i has any mods if u could give me an example of any mods that could help

If you don't have any mods installede at all, then that isn't the problem (otherwise one would suspect the problem being because of a mod conflict). In that case I would, as Jakethebusker said, check if your drivers are up to date since skyrim can be a little picky about that. Otherwise, just try to load the game again, and wait for about 15 min. I have once had this problem too, but after I waited a really long time, it finally loaded. And after this initial long loading time, all the other loading times have been normal. Even after restarting the whole game.

the hints and pictures on the loading screen still moves, but just like you, i actually waited like
a half hour already today so approximately how long u think this may take

Mods are little files on the steam workshop or Nexus site that alter or "modify" the games engine in some way. Some mods add abilities, or clothes/weapons/armour that wasn't shipped in the core game and in the most part are made by fans of the game. If you're unsure as to what a mod is, I agree with Amycus, you probably don't have any.

I know that new drivers for the Nvidia card were released today as I have literally updated mine before starting tonights session of Skyrim.

Half hour load time? Your game has almost certainly crashed. Try shutting it down and the "verify the integrity of the game chache". You can do that by right clicking the game on your steam browser, selecting properties and then go to the [local files] tab. It may take a bit of time but if there is anything missing from your game it will automatically dwnload and install them.

Correction I have downloaded someone elses mods i don't have any of my own yet, a mod can add a variety of new and powerful weapons, new followers, player homes (some player homes are castles!!) and even some new quests just be sure the person whose mods you get has a 4 or 5 star rating and icludes any details about bugs or other issues with their mods some modders upload untested mods that contain bugs so go with a trusted mod!

On another post you say that you "have this for the PC as well", does that mean that you have it on either heXbox or P.S.3? If so, have you completed the game?

If you've never played the game at all then I'd say no mods at all. You really should see all the stuff, or as much of the stuff as possible, that the programmers intended you to see. Mods are great but the core game is so vast alone that too many mods will stop it being "Bethesda's" Skyrim and make it "Flaharty's Skyrim". Again, if you've never played it, it you should see how some of us saw it 15 months ago when it first came out.

And as for mods, the first one that you should get is SKSE and then SkyUI - because they don't change too much of the game. SkyUI is an interface mod that makes it "P.C. friendly". SKSE is an acronym for SKyrim Script Extender. This adds functions to the game that some mods - SkyUI for example - rely on. SKSE is nice box of tools that modders rely on for some of their mods.

Skyui is good to start with for an initial play though. Also - and opinion is divided about this - look at something called "unofficial skyrim patch". Some say use it, some say don't. My personal opinion is it works for me. Others say it doesn't and causes them more problems. I'm not saying more than that. Research it and make up your own mind.

Just don't throw too many mods at it if you've played before and want to play the p.c. version because it can be modded. Just because you can doesn't necessarily mean you should.

No, you may have miss understood me. It's nt the properties in file explorer. While you have steam open on the screen, go to your games library. If, like me, you have a list of your installed games, find Skyrim and right click it. Then go to properties, local files and then ther should be four options. One option, showing "verify integrity of game cache", is the option you want to click. It will then do it for you.

Welcome. You never did say whether you'd played and beaten the game on another system. Kinda intersted now cos I definitely have a few mods in mind, now I have been thinking about it.
