Is it possible to play the game without sound?
So, I just finished my new pc, downloaded skyrim and attempted to load it up. One problem, skyrim reports that it could not detect a sound card and will not run. I was wondering if there was anyway to make the game skip this and run regardless.

Can we assume your sound card drivers installed correctly and your sound card works with all your other applications?

Yes, the sound card works fine with everything else, it's just skyrim.

Run dxdiag.exe

*UPDATE* I fixed the problem today. Found at that my speakers were the problem and didn't work with the game. Compatibility issue. Plugging in headphones made the game run. Thanks for the help anyway.

Wierd. Speakers shouldn't make any difference to whether soundcard is detected or not.

I know, but apparently that was the problem.

Does Skyrim require a particular configuration that your speaker setup doesn't provide? I found this Skyrim Sound Help thread from a few years ago.
