CTD (Crash) on saving
Everytime I save I automatically crash to desktop and I don't know why I have very few mods installed and this never troubled me before.

Works for me with an i9 and 32gb RAM. Before reading this thread, however, it didn't have the PageSize entries... and I was getting CTD on saves after a certain point even after cleaning the previous save.

Are you still using F6/F5 quick save/load...?

No, It is when I do a hard save.

Only mod i've ever had this happen with for me is the Summerset Isle mod.

If you have any old autosaves try deleting them as this has caused problems for me previously

Might be a little bit late here but anyways: I had the same problem, i removed my Autosaves, uninsalled a mod i recently downloaded, no matter what i did the game crashed when i tried to save.
I'v had many problems in the past with the original version of the game just crashing no matter what when, the clock turns into midnight or even getting near an area for example(I remember this happening with Karwasten, Whiterun and a cave east of Falkreath).

What has always worked however is to reload an older savefile, thats what i did and now i can save again like normal.

Hope it helps :)

Open Cities must be at bottom of load order.

Use LOOT for mod load order optimization and check for dirty edits.

If you have dirty edits clean them with SSEdit, there is a video tutorial on the nexus/yt.

If you have removed mods in the past clean your savegames with SkyrimTools- Resaver, again video tutorial on the nexus.
same here, i deleted all mods still same

I get this sometimes, and I can't figure out how to get rid of it. I've tried pretty much all the suggestions related to mods, load orders, file cleaning etc. Nothing seems to work to fix it once you've got it. Your best bet is to go to a earlier save, and try quick saving from there to find out if it's early enough to not be effected. I am pretty convinced that the vast majority of advice that people have about this topic is just speculation, because I've seen numerous threads about this very problem with no actual fixes. I'm also pretty sure it has nothing to do with mods, and is instead something to do with some problem with the way the game saves. If it were mods, the same installed mods in their same load orders would have the same results under the same conditions. However this is not the case, if it does not effect every save equally.

That being said, I like Darth Rand's idea. Which seemed to work for me. I lost 5 hours of game play on a fun character, but at least now I can save. I'd like to add to it though. Maybe try doing a real non-auto or non-quick save every 5 hours or so. 5 hours sucks to loose, but it's a lot better than going back to level 1 because you never did a real save on a 100+ hour character.

I had the same problem and if you have a PC system with 8GB of memory than add/change this in Skyrim.ini. It solved the problem for me.

iMinMemoryPageSize = 1024
iMaxMemoryPageSize = 3072

janstuivenberg you have no idea what all the trouble I went through until your suggestion finally fixed the broken bones like a miracle I want to kiss you no ♥♥♥♥
