i just wonder why i cant run Skyrim without getting a damned BSOD, i cant even gett past the loading screen without my whole damn computer crashing!
i've had this problem now since the release of the darn game, i even pre-ordered it so i had it on release! so you can immagine how annoyed i am to still have not had the chance to play it!
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition
CPU Cooling Device: Cooler Master V10 CPU Kjøler
GFX Cards: XFX Radeon HD 5970 2GB GDDR5 (and i have two of them in crossfire)
RAM: Corsair Dominator DHX+ DDR3 1333MHz 8GB
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula, Socket-AM3
Power Supply: Silverstone Strider ST1500, 1500W PSU
Main Hard Drive, SSD: Corsair SSD Force Series 2,5" 120GB
Secondary Hard Drives: Western Digital Caviar® GreenPower? 1TB (i have two of them)
so....here it is, theese are my specs, and i beg for some helpfull answers becous this is seriusly ******* annoying!
If you are not overclocking anything and everything is running at stock speeds then try either re-installing the game, re-installing graphics drivers, downloading and installing the latest graphics drivers or disabling crossfire mode.
Try doing each of these one at a time and if the game works then you obviously found the source of the problem that is making your machine crash.
i am running at stock clocking speed, i have tried with and without crossfire, i have formated the computer twice and made sure i have the latest updates everywhere and that every driver is up to date, i have read that there are some problems with Skyrim running on computers that have two or more GPU's, and they said try and run without crossfire, but i have a problem where on each of my GFX-Cards i have 2 GPU's, so even without Crossfire i still have 2x GPU's active!
is there a way to single out a GPU and deactivate it? since i have 4 of them in my computer, is there a way to shut down 3 of them?
Very weird. In my expirience, BSOD comes most times from faulty RAM modules first (skyrim does load a decent ammount of info into the ram), lack of power delivered to a componenet when it is stressed or driver issue.
However, there are a few other things that might be it:
Do you have a 64 bit system or a 32 bit?
I'm not sure whether this is relevant (because it's an old post) but maybe you could try and roll back to a driver version which works... also check for mods addressing your card, amd and/or crossfire.. Good luck
