When you launch the game there is a splash screen with a "data files" option. Click that and make sure all the DLCs are ticked. That is the most common cause of this problem. If that isn't the solution then post again.

When you click on the game, then Data Files do the Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn .esm files show up at the top? Have you any other mods installed? We'll start with those. And you may want to download Boss from nexus and run it if you have other mods.

Thinking along the same lines, lol

Hmm, well, you prob didn't need to uninstall the original. I'm guessing correct me if wrong..let's see...

So have you tried verifying the game files?..(right click on Skyrim in library select bottom function click 2nd tab (local files) and verify...

Someone just posted the same thread mate. you might wanna look through the past couple of forum pages for this thread, it's identical and I don't think there's any point us repeating ourselves..

Did not see the other thread.......... did the data files there was nothing to tick there......did the verifing files in local tab as well got a message stating that 1 files failed to validate & will be reaquired
BustaCapInYoEye Aug 25, 2013 @ 2:24pm 
as well no other mods are installed

Every single game I have ever bought in 25+ years has worked. So there's something you're not doing right. I dunno, all out of ideas, but did you have problems with the original digital download?..

I've had no real problems either till now and I been playing computer games since the Comodore 64 days "27" years also the 8088 & 8086 days and that's been 21 years when "DOS" was the premier OS ...... So i know how to install software (Pulling out what hair I have left) :-( . This here is just a nightmare "STEAM" driven nightmare I believe... The original and the legendary edition were both retail versions not downoads so it wouldn't be messed up files do to a less than perfect downoad......Losing hope.....I miss the good ole days

Do you mean all files were ticked? Or that there were no files there to see. And again, load order is important even for the DLCs.

fired up the game after reinstalling it and data files showed no mods to select.....wondering if they are there to play????

I'm just guessing...on a long shot...that the bundle hasn't been registered....

This didn't occur to me but it seems possible (nothing said so far excludes it).

Busta: In the box should be a CD-key, have you entered this into Steam (click "add a game" in the bottom left corner of Steam followed by "activate a product..." and follow the instructions from there).

Also, this would be a little less confusing if you used the correct terms. Mods are user-created content. Dragonborn, Dawnguard and Hearthfires are all DLCs. Sorry to sound pedantic but I've been wrong-footed a few times by the incorrected usage of these terms.

those 2 things might just be the problem.....it didn't ask me for the cd key i thought that was funny but didn't argue about it...thought it was because of the original installation....didnt know i had to register it either.....in the past games just asked for the cd key even if you had the original and bought a upgtraded version and most did not require you to register it.....bad thing is i don't know what is normal & what is not with STEAM. I hate it actually but if i want to play skyrim i have to deal with it i guess......also sorry about mod vs DLC confusion i was calling it mods because it came from a disk and not downloaded but thanks for the info cause I hate mis-labeling something..........Dan,Steve thank you both for your help and the others as well I'm off to do those things and hopefully will be enjoying the new content soon......THANKS-A-BUNCH
