Crash on Bethesda logo
Clean uninstall-Reinstall, verified cache. Got an Error code: 80. Rebooted computer, voila! game runs as far as the Bethesda logo and crashes with no code.

Like I said before, no mods... nothing.

That means you're missing a Master File, simple as that. Check your load order, and assuming you really have NO mods, make sure you have the skyrim.esm and update.esm and DLC .esm files ALL ticked. If any single master file is missing, a CTD at Bethesda logo is always confirmed.

Thanks for the tips, I haven't used mods ever so I don't think that's an issue, ill try these out when I get hone tonight. I have noticed one of the secondary installers wouldn't run, something like netDotX or something.

If it is a missing master file, how do I get it back?

Ok... After another Uninstall/Reinstall and it still isn't working, Checked my Load order and Skyrim.esm and Update.esm not only were not ticked but werent even on the list... How do I get them back if Reinstalling the game doesn't work?

After doing some research, it appears the Skyrim.esm and Update.esm no longer show up in Data Files in the Vanilla Launcher... Correct? So i am going to get another load order program and see if i cant find the problem.

try that ^

After running BOSS, it tells me that a lot of my files have "Dirty edits" and shouls be cleaned, and when I run tests in TESV Edit, Skyrim and Update.esm always start unchecked, and I cant make them stay checked...

After MORE research, I tried deactivating all the DLC, leaving only Skyrim and Update.ESM running and the game still crashed.
Nod Jul 24, 2014 @ 8:36am 
When I verifyu the game Cache, it says one file failed and will be reaquired, but isn't ever reaquired... could that be causing the problem?

Dude, just go directly to your Skyrim directory and check from there. Skyrim.esm and Update.esm are never shown in the vanilla game launcher so you cant tell just by looking at it.

In my Data folder I have Update, Update.bsi, Skyrim, all kinds of Different Skyrim.bsi folders, but I don't have any folders with the file type .esm

It's in the Data folder. steamapps/common/Skyrim/Data. There should be a Skyrim.esm and Update.esm. What does your load order look like? Posting it here would help

Load order on TESV Edit looks like:

Skyrim (Unchecked)
Update(Unchecked)
Dawnguard (Checked)
Hearthfire (Checked)
Dragonborn (Checked)

When I check my first two options they go back to being unchecked after closing the program.

Unless the Elder Scrolls Constructions Set files are the .ESM files (In which case it's just not showing as .esm) then I don't have any ESM files in my data directory.

@Grimus, Ill give those a read.

OP watch some tutorials how to install and run skyrim. Make life alot more pleassant :)

Microsoft framework-DXenduser are up to date?

Your system specs can your PC handle skyrim?

Show loadorder.

Type in search: %appdata%

Your loadorder list is there.

I suggest watch or read some tutorials and then install skyrim with mods.

If you still have trouble go console.

Btw DON'T USE BOSS is outdated and wrong advice USE LOOT instead it's the replacer for BOSS which is updated and superior to BOSS these days.

Use a Mod manager called Mod organiser instead of only through steam its alot better and you will have alot more fun installing mods.

But my advice stands learn PC first then how to install skyrim and mods and how to play or your in for world of hurt and frustration.

Good luck.

You don't use TESVEdit to check load order. --_-. That's not what the tool is for. Use Nexus Mod Manager or Wyre Bash.
