What are your system Specs and Mods used?

Using the latest version of SKSE?

Try the following.
- Disable all your mods (for now.)

- Exit Steam
- Go to Steam folder, usualy in C:\Program Files (x86)
- Remove folder named appcache
- Go to Documnets > My Games > Skyrim
- Remove files Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini. Extensions might not be visible, depending on your folder options.

- Close your computer.

- Start your computer
- Start Steam. It will load a bit.

- From Steam client Library view, select the game and right click it with your mouse.
- Select Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache.
- Once done, open the default launcher and let the game reconfigurate itself, even if you would be using SKSE launcher otherwise.

* New appcache will be created during game inspection sequence <- Steam load.
* New Skyrim.ini will be created during hardware inspection sequene.
* New SkyrimPrefs.ini will be created during game settings inspeection sequence.
* 1 file will always fail to validate. It is related to how Steam detects yor graphic card and does not have any effect to your game.

Not only did it crash with no mods installed but that time it crashed my whole computer . it straight shut it down.

So?
This procedure is for Skyrim.
Try it out.
joethetoe Aug 13, 2014 @ 9:14am 
I did it. my whole pc crashed that time

What?!

That process does the following things:

When reinstalling or validating files, Steam checks your data against the appcache folder. This folder gathers information about your games. Sometimes that data can get corrupted of otherwise messed up, so Steam does not notice that something is actually wrong in your Skyrim master files and does not replace them properly.

By removing the cahche, we forced Steam to inspect all your games again and compare the validation data against fresh information in your appcahce folder. That is all.

I can't see how that could crash your computer. If this is the case, then there is likely something going on with your computer.

Unsubskribe/uninstall all Mods that contain companions.
Start the game via SKSE.
Save.
Install one companion-mod ... start game, look if its ok.
Install another companion-mod ... start game, look if its ok.
....
Some of the companions have problems to run with others and coused crashes.

Just had the same problem ... had about 50+ Mods installed, game was working perfect.
Then i installed some other Mods and about 6+ companion Mods and my game goes ctd.
I uninstalled all those Mods and the companion-mods to, so my game runs perfect again (i look at the date of installing and uninstalled all those i installed latest).
Now i goe step by step with installing other stuff ... install one, look if it works, then other one and so on.

Still CTD with no mods enabled so i think when i reformated something got screwed up im just gonna reformat again:(

You dont need to format_x ... its useless, the (hidden)_infos are all over your hard_drives.
Untill you dont format_all_your_drives ... and that is not what you want (it will take you more than one day to install the system and all the updates, then all your programs/software and so on).

I have the same problem and just live with that, that i cannot play Skyrim from Steam ... i now allways have to run it via SKSE).
With no other game i have such problems, it started when i bought and installed the DLCs for Skyrim (dont know wich makes so much trouble but i supose it is Dawnguard).

Perhaps you can try to generate_FNIS before starting the game via SKSE.
