I have a similar thing, if I alt tab to go browse the net or something and then click on Skyrim it opens to a black windowed screen. All you need to do at that point is hit alt tab and select it again and it comes back. Skyboost helped stabilize my game big time as well, of course there are still some bugs but it runs decently for the most part now.

I love Skyrim, but it didn't hold me as long as Oblivion or Morrowind did. I don't know why but I really just got bored of Skyrim so fast.

It was probably a combination of bad development choices on Bethesda's part, the game felt way to easy, even playing on Expert I could care less the entire game and blow through it without even paying much attention at all. The main quest, oh don't get me started. It was so bland, so boring I felt like it was a bloody side quest, It was more interesting freeing the man from the spider webs than fighting Alduin. Oh, that is another thing. If I killed the world eater, saved the world and killed the worst thing alive, why am I not properly rewarded? How come I just come to the top of the hill, see some dragons and that's it. I don't get any banquets, no recognition, it just ENDS right there. Nothing, no statues, I've seen hardly any, if any dialogue change at all.

I admit, completing the main quest of Skyrim just beats the crap out of you, it makes you feel like there is no point to keep going, you've just conquered the World-eater, nobody is really doing anything for you and you've still got to do this side quests and explore more dungeons? I know they say the dungeons were handcrafted, but they just have the same feeling, a very lineare one at that. Combined with how easy it was, you'd get better gear from doing the main quest and dungeons barely ever gave you great armour or weapons, if your lucky you'd find another dragon shout but I already know the main ones, so whats the point getting these useless ones I'll never use? The guilds were boring as ever, the Dark Brotherhood was stupid and completely boring, the atmosphere was a complete joke and the missions didn't make you feel like an Assassin or Hitman at all, you just went in and killed them in broad daylight without any penalties. I mean, the whole war was between the Nords and Imperials, yet you assassinated the emperor? Why didn't that change the entire fight? Just everyone acts like nothing happened at all? The companions guild was alright, but the werewolf things just took right over it and really sucked if you didn't want to be a werewolf. I never finished the College of Winterhold, so I'll withhold my judgement of that. The only fun one IMO was the Thief guild, it was a true blast playing through the quests as an actual thief, not killing anyone and completing the bonuses.

Some of the quests were fun, exploring was fun for a while but it just got useless after you get good armour from basic Smithing and Alchemy pots combined with Enchanting.

The game is a gem, but it didn't hold me over as long as the other Elder Scrolls. Still one of the best RPGs of the year though, but defiantly not the best RPG ever or even Elder Scrolls.

I think it's probably more of a windows issue than a engine bug. Alt- Tab x2 always works for me.

The alt tab thing is annoying but if you have it on your steam list or add it to your steam list then you can use steams game overlay which includes a browser so you can still be reading a walkthrough or something without alt tabing the game.

That border with black window happens to me every time i alt+tab, when i want to come back in the game, all you have to do is hit the taskbar button again when it appears and you're in the game. What i've also seen from time to time, is that after doing this, the normal windows mouse cursor stays on the screen, and is annoying, to make it go away, you can press tab, or any other key that takes you to a menu, where there is a mouse cursor. Other then this, i have a blocked misc quest, and once i've fallen through the floor somewhere in a house in Windhelm. Not counting getting hurt/killed by a cart or pot and watching your horse in jump animation while not moving anywhere. Overall I think these are minor and don't affect the gameplay.
What I don't understand is why they have made every seller/guard/bard/imperial/stormcloak etc. say the exact same things. They've clearly used different actors for different voices, but they gave them the same dialog to say. If they have a lot of MB space filled with voice, why don't they have them saying different things?
