This question already has an answer here:
So, I've got Skyrim downloaded and everything, my computer more than meets the requirements and when I go to press the play button on the startup window nothing happens.
I've updated my video card drivers, updated my firewall setting, and searched google for any related problems people are having with the game. The only thing that I can find is that people are having the game crash due to some sound problem.
Well, I would try some of the solutions to that problem but my game won't even start at all.
