Crash to Desktop everytime i load the game up
not played the game for a while and wanted to start again, loaded the game up, the titles loaded and then crash to the desktop. Ive uninstalled the game re-installed, i have no mods that i know of, no DLC just the basic game.

Any Help would be appreciated

Download TES5EDIT & Boss. That will help you with you`re problem.

Miine does this when i use a mod, just turn all your mods off then try again if you dont have any mods check you skyrim folder just incase

When you press to start the game and the little scenice window of Skyrim appears, do not press play. Scroll down to the data files and press enter. A window will appear showing the load order of your Skyrim files.
Order should be
Skyrim.esm
Update
If you have any DLC's they should be in the order of:-
Dawnguard.
Hearthfire.
Dragonborn.
Any mods you want to add should appear after the above.

If you data files are in the correct order then the next thing to do is check the integrity of your game cache. To do this go into Library, RIGHT click on Skyrim. Scroll down to Properties and chose Local Files. Click on verify integrity of game cache.
Don't be alarmed if it states 1 file failed to validate as Steam downloads file which you can see at the bottom of the monitor screen.
Another thing you can check under Steam are that your steam client and video driver are updated.

my current order is:

HighResTexturePack01.esp
HighResTexturePack02.esp
HighResTexturePack03.esp

I dont have Skyrim.esm, updates or DLC's

Have you used mods before? They can leave lingering problems in the saves, so I have read. If so, then TES5EDIT and BOSS should apparently help, though I've not needed to use them yet myself (oh no! voice of doom!).

You just posted while I was posting. Having no Skyrim.esm is a problem lol. Verify the game cache.
Roscaria May 11, 2013 @ 12:12pm 
Skyrim.esm and update files are there but can be hidden. Don't worry about them. If you only have the Texture files showing in your data files then it's not a load order problem. Check the integrity of the game cache as mentioned before. The try playing Skyrim afterwards.

Skyrim.esm and updates may not show up in the data files but you can still have them present.

Oh, I'm so used to seeing the NMM list that I assumed it showed in the normal loadup screen. You learn something new every day eh? :)

i havent used any mods before and just tried playing the game again and it still fails, it crashes if i load a saved game, continue the current game or start a new game

Did you wait for the updated file to be downloaded before playing?
