5800K crashes on Skyrim startup

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have this setup as a steambox for my TV but I can't seem to get Skyrim play at all. Starts up to menu then repeatedly freezes and flashes. I tried messing w/ sound changes and still no go.. Seems be an issue w/ APU chips?

Hey,

Please provide us with some more information. What PSU are you using? What mobo?
Cooling? Is it just Skyrim, or other games as well?
Would love to help, but 5800K crashes with Skyrim' isn't enough, no offense or anything, I really want to help you.

hello
are you using the in cpu gpu please?
if yes, check that you have enough ram shared with the gpu to power your game.
I could also be ram or the gpu, but if new not likely.

Have you tried reinstalling the game? And has it worked for some time, or just never?

What operating system are you using. My 3870k runs Skyrim at high at 1080p on Windows Vista with no issues.
