If you’re lucky enough to own your very own copy of Skyrim—either the original or Special Edition—then you know there’s nothing quite like being able to play the world’s greatest role-playing game in almost every room of your house. There are, however, a few things that can go wrong when playing this otherwise flawless gem on your console. If you’ve been having issues getting past certain levels or if your game freezes, we’ve got some helpful troubleshooting tips for you! Take heart: You can get back to slaying dragons and joining secret societies in no time with these quick fixes from our expert staff.
The first step is to check for server issues.
The first step is to check for server issues. You can do this by checking the official forums for the game, its website, its Twitter account, and so on. Additionally, if your game freezes in a particular area of the game world, you can search online and see if other people are having problems there too. If you’re playing on PC and want to know if there are any known or upcoming issues with your copy of Skyrim Online (and how they might work themselves out), visit [this subreddit](https://reddit/r/skyrimonline). The moderators there will let you know about any glitches that affect players on PC and when they expect them to be fixed—or whether those glitches have already been taken care of by an upcoming patch.
The next step is to check your internet connection.
The next step is to check your internet connection. If you’re on a wired connection, make sure the cable is plugged in firmly and not frayed. If you’re using Wi-Fi, try connecting to another network or turning off any devices that might be causing interference.
Next, check your router settings and modem status (if applicable). You can do this by going into the admin panel of each device and looking for anything suspicious—such as an odd-looking login name or password that may have been changed without your knowledge. If something looks fishy go ahead and change it back! Another thing to look at would be any firewalls installed on the machine that could be blocking essential ports from communicating with each other properly; disable these if possible before proceeding further.
If none of those steps fix the problem then try turning off antivirus/firewall software temporarily while playing Skyrim Online so they don’t keep interfering with important data packets being sent between clients during gameplay sessions.”
The next step is to restart the console.
You’ve already tried to manually fix the issue, and it’s still not working. The next step is to restart the console. Turn off your console by selecting “Turn Off” on its menu or pressing and holding down the power button until it turns off. If you have a PlayStation 4, hold down on your controller for approximately 8 seconds until you hear two beeps; if you have an Xbox One, press and hold down on the controller’s “Guide” button for about 5 seconds until you hear two beeps. Wait for about 3 minutes before turning on your console again (or wait 10 seconds if using a PlayStation 4).
Once it has fully turned back on try playing again!
Also shut down the console and turn it back on again.
If you’re playing Skyrim Online and your game freezes, there are two things you can do. The first is to turn off your console and turn it back on again. This will fix some issues that may be causing the game to freeze up. Alternatively, if turning off the console doesn’t work for you, try shutting down any computer programs that could be running in the background and then restarting your computer or laptop before trying again.
Check that your console has the latest versions of all games, add-ons and system updates installed.

Clear the console cache. You can find detailed instructions for how to do this online or in your console’s manual.
This is the most basic troubleshooting step and the first thing you should try. Clearing the console cache will delete temporary files, which can potentially be causing issues in your game. To do this, go to Settings > System > Storage Management > Internal Storage or Memory Card (depending on where your games are installed). Then press Triangle/Y button to open file directory that contains all of your files for Skyrim Online. Select “Caches” folder and press R2/RT button on PS4 or X Button on Xbox One controller to delete it. Be sure not to select any other folders while doing this!
If you still have problems, reset your Network Settings to their factory defaults. You’ll need to enter your Wi-Fi password after doing this so make sure that you know it before you reset the network settings!
If you’re still having problems, reset your Network Settings to their factory defaults. This will set all network settings back to their original state, including the Wi-Fi password. If you don’t know what that is or can’t find it written down somewhere, Google it!
