Right, I think I've read and understand most of the wiki article here and I think I recognized the source of my problem but not sure which one and what should I implement.
So, with my first attempt to install HD textures, I installed SKSE
, UNP and Better Male. One or more of these mods caused frequent crash. So I did a clean re-install as instructed in STEP
. After I have a clean install, I applied Dawnguard DLC
, Unofficial Skyrim Patch and Unofficial Dawnguard Patch. I've played for over 20 hours without problem. A few CTD
but that's normal.
Problem arises when I attempted to install Bethesda Hi-Res DLC
Optimized. I kept getting frequent CTD
and crash upon loading game.
My computer spec :
Intel i5 2500K Sandy Bridge
4 GB RAM running on Windows 7 32 bit (3 GB Switch not enabled)
GPU nVidia Geforce GTX 460 SE 1 GB VRAM.
Is it my 32 bit system?
Is it my 4 GB RAM?
Is it my 1 VRAM?
I understand Bethesda Hi-Res DLC
Optimized may a bit too much, but UNP and Better Male mod too? O.o
Enabling 3 GB Switch may or may not help my computer stay for awhile unless I install more HD mods, upgrading to 64 bit system (with 4 GB RAM) will likely cause CTD
Oh well, I'm confused now :facepalm:
