The first problem is that when I verify the integrity of game cache, it always says 1 item failed to validate and will be reacquired. I have a new computer and I put Skyrim on this computer via Steam. After a clean, fresh install, I had this problem with verify integrity of game cache. I reinstalled the game and still have this problem. I put the mods I wanted into the Skyrim directory (via Nexus Mod Manager), and started a new game and got to Riverwood, and did the verify game cache thing again, and it still said one file failed to validate and will be reacquired. Right after that, I used this verify game cache tool again, and the same result happened. I hope there is a way to solve this issue. I'm afraid of starting a new game and then this becoming a big problem for me hours into the game (I'm talking about things like save game corruption).
Also, every now and then (maybe three or four times from Helgen to Riverwood and accomplishing tasks around Riverwood), the screen would have a flickering of a dark color on the screen. It would occur for a small fraction of a second, and the dark colors took up around 40%-50% of the screen in a random array. It would be with straight edges and angular structures. I hope this helps people get some idea of what I'd see. I'm worried about this being an indication of a problem with my game files, and I am afraid that this problem could lead to problems with the game hours into playing it (again, I'm talking about something like save game corruption).
I hope I can be helped with these issues. I will appreciate all the help I'll get in this thread.
