That one file will always fail. It is relatd to how Steam detects your graphic card and does not have any effect to your game.

- Exit Steam
- Go to Steam folder
- Remove folder named appcache

- Go to Documents\My Games\Skyrim
- Remove files Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini
- Note, that extensions might not be visible, depending on your folder options.

- Close your computer

- Start your computer
- Start Steam
- Verify Integrity of Game Cache

One or more files may fail to verify:
"This is normal for most Steam games. The files that fail to verify are local configuration files that should not be replaced as part of this process. You can safely ignore this message."

Tried an earlier (older) save?

This sounds very strange. Game usually crashes after Bethesda logo, if it is missing parent (master) data from mod or DLC that is required by a child mod or DLC.

If you really did what I suggested, then you should now have fresh master files, fresh appcache (for Steam to compare your game data) and fresh configuration files.

Have you previously modded your game? When you open the Skyrim Launcher and check behind the Data Files view, what files can you find from there?

maybe i have some virus or something, maybe i should reinstall whole computer, but i really dont wanna do that
me14920 Aug 25, 2014 @ 9:13am 
Hmm...I wonder is it crashing right when the sound first starts playing. The "sound" thing sounds suspicious
me14920 Aug 25, 2014 @ 9:14am 
No pun intended of course. :P
