Skyrim crashing, please help!!!
I bought Skyrim for PC the other day. And when i played, starting a new game. The game crashed to a grey screen. I had to restart the entire computer.
I know very little about computers and am unsure of how to solve the problem or why it is occuring. It has happened on a few games (My game crashing i mean). Namely, Total War Rome II, Sims 3 + Sims 3 Ambitions, and Total War Shogun 2.

I really want to play Skyrim please help.

Just in case my system specs are as follows:

Graphics Processing User (GPU) = GeForce GTX 660
Central Processing Unit (CPU) = Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz
Memory = 8.00GB RAM (7.88 Usable)
Resolution = 1440 x 900, 60Hz
Driver Version = 331.65
Operatin System (OS) = Microsoft Windows 8

I ran it through CanYouRunIt and it said i could.

And the speakers make an awful beepy noise constantly.

Nope, just trying to get it to work first lol. But it is the Legendary Edition, and so it has all of the Add ons (Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn).

hearthfire.esm
dragonborn.esm

have you checked your files via steam?
right click skyrim->properties->local files->validate local files/game cache
Lemonizerchimp 29. loka, 2013 13.46 
It said one file failed to validate but nothing happened, so i dont know how to find it or deal with it.
