    After a reinstall, and a few days of struggling to find the drivers i needed for my pc.
    I think i got everything up and running, until i tried to play Skyrim.

    my screen looks like this when i run the launcher.

    but without game running it looks normal.
    and the game wont launch past that part.

    (n)

    any ideas what i need to do to fix this?

    thanks.

    That looks like a driver problem to me. Exactly what graphics card do you have and which drivers have you used?

    Its weird because i can play a different game with no problems, im trying to reinstall Skyrim currently.

    I have a Nvidia GeForce 9600gt.

    Im not actually quite sure how to check which version of drivers i have :$

    Just previous to the graphics going all funny like that, Skyrim wouldn't launch at all. it said that the application configuration was incorrect. then my PC prompted me to download microsoft visual c++ 2008 (or similar) that made the game launch, but in the funny colors.

    IT RESOLVED ITSELF.
    not sure what the problem was, but its running smoothly now.
    thanks guys.
