On my new Asus N56JR laptop, whenever I try to launch skyrim, it says "Failed to initialize renderer. Unknown error creating renderer," The laptop is equiped with an i7-4700HQ and a 760m.

I have tried deleting skyrim.ini and skyrimprefs.ini and verifying the cache integrity. I have also tried running as administrator and in compatibility mode. I have also tried turning the sound quality of my speakers down to 16 bit rather than 24 bit.

I have also tried Fallout new vegas, except the error is "Failed to initialize renderer. Unknown error creating the Gamebryo Render."

Does anybody have any idea how to fix this?
Im on windows 8 (8.1).
(and yes i tried restarting my computer)

My old sound card had an option for 192kHz in it's playback options. When I was screwing around one day and set it that high, several games (including Skyrim) began to crash immediately when they were started. Try setting the playback to 24 bit @ 44.1 kHz or 48kHz and see what happens.

Edit: Some screenshots so you know what I am referring to...
