check if your skyrim files in:
documenst/mygames/skyrim
and
steam/steamapps/common/skyrim
are NOT set to read only

one thread is enough

well: steam/steamapps/common/skyrim is onread only but i can't turn it of

of course you can. just uncheck the box and apply it to all

But than it turns back on

try your game it should work now

Your aspect ratio is at 16:9 correct, not 16:10? Just throwin out ideas because that resolution is not supported in 16:10 in the game from what I see.

Going with that also. Not being able to change the file attribute makes no sense unless the O/P does not have Admin privileges.

Right click on your game in your library, then click on properties. Click on the Set Launch Options button. Type the following in, exactly as it appears:

-w 1920 -h 1080

This should override the settings and force it to play at that resolution. I haven't tested this out on Skyrim but I know it works for other games (at least Valve games like half life or TF2)

Game plays fine in both 1920x1080 and 1920x1200 / 16:9 and 16:10 for me

In "documents/mygames/skyrim" there should be a "saves" folder and three other files.
Delete those three files, skyrim will recreate them at the next start, this helped me to fix the problem.
