    Uh, yeah, I can't believe I left that out, but definitely update the video card drives as ectech points out.

    In fact you might also insure you have the latest Windows Updates as well.

    You should also run this command.. Some games require .Net 3 components.


    Dism /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFx3 /All /Source:C:\Windows\WinSxS /LimitAccess

    Link: Download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service pack 1 (Full Package) from Official Microsoft Download Center

    They shouldn't need .NET 3.5 for the games mentioned as they are all Steam based games and thus everything is installed when the game is installed, including the proper DX files. In fact I don't even have .net 3 installed, and my games run just fine....

    Oh, and you can check you .NET installs through Programs and Features and it'll show you all your .NET installs...

    This is under Windows 8.1, no tweaks.

    All that said, it doesn't hurt to try, but I'm thinking authenticity issues.

    Hmm, this may be an issue for another thread, but when downloading my Graphics Card's driver, it says my computer doesn't have the minimum required specs. I have .NET as well.

    I just updated the driver, and Skyrim still doesn't work. Same error.

    Update: Deleted the folder for DirectX as suggested by a friend in the registry editor, same error as well.

    Oh, goodie... now you get to re-install your OS

    Please be aware that DirectX is now is part of the OS, and that deleting it, or it's registry folders could have dire effects now, and later on. And I'm not surprised that suggestion didn't work. It wouldn't, and all you're doing is messing up the OS.

    Oh, and if your computer doesn't meet the minimum specs, especially the video portion, none of those games are going to work.

    And is this your video card? Graphics Card L19W961 (1360x768@60Hz) Intel HD Graphics (HP)

    The OS works fine, I've been on it for about five hours now. That's my video card, yes. I'm sure my computer meets the specs, because I played the games on high before getting 8.1. The computer doesn't meet the minimum specs when installing the driver Intel chose for me, not the games.

    All the drivers for your computer come from HP.com not Intel.
