Skyrim will not start up

Skyrim Crashes right after I press play
The screen opens up black for a split second and that's all it does.

I have updated my video carddriver to the beta, downgraded

Changed the sound settings

Deleted and reinstalled the whole game including removing mods

Deleting steam.ini and steamprefs.ini

Veryifying Cache

Changing sound settings

Updated my computer, scanned for problems, fixed the registry

Checked Conpatability settings

I thought I might get a fix from update 1.4, so far the beta hasn't changed a thing.

If there is anything else I can do, I am totally willing to try
