Skyrim wont load
Hello everybody,

Last night when I went to bed my skyrim was working perfectly, but today when i wanna start up a game skyrim just closes and takes me to my desktop.

It can open the first two screens but when i want to continue the situation appears.

I've tried reinstalling my game and im not running any mods/huds.

Anybody who have had the same problem or know the solution?

I have had this problem before and it eventually went away on it's own. Look on the internet to fin out what files are all ok to perma-delete because there might be a trace of a mod or somthing that is messing with it.

but keep your most recent save, unless your making a new game or whatever.

Like The Holy said: reïnstall and keep the save game. Probabily some mod tha gives you a hard time...

I agree with the posters above.

As a last ditch effort, you might want to try verifying your cache. Before doing so make sure you back up your Skyrim.INI and Skyrimprefs.ini and and your saves to a safe location(files usually located in My Documents/My Games/Skyrim). Now delete all those files from the My Games/Skyrim directory and go to Skyrim in your Steam Library and right click Skyrim, go to properties, click the tab "Local Files" and then click "Verify Cache Integrity".

If you have corrupted files these should be downloaded from Steam automatically. Now try to use the Steam launcher to launch. The game will automatically rebuild the Skyrim.INI, SkyrimPrefs and Renderer.Info files. If the game successfully launches, fantastic.

You can either keep the new .ini files the game generated and try putting back your saves and try to launch the game or try putting back your backed up .ini files and saves and try to launch. If the game still crashes you may have a corrupt save and need a full installation.

I'm by no means an expert here but this has been my experience, I hope this helps you.

I know for a fact that there are two files or maybe 3 that you absolutely have to keep otherwise skyrims usless.
