So, if anyone can help me with this problem... I'll declare you Skyrim King of All Time. lol
Installed Skyrim on an older PC with a new install of Windows 8.
Brand new Steam install, not uch software on the PC.
It gets to the start screen, the music comes up, and where we're supposed to see the menu options to start a new game, continue, load a game, etc, instead there are little boxes where the text should be... hollow square outlines.
Also, no mouse shows up, and pressing "Enter" does nothing... in fact, no keyboard controll at all.
No problems in anything else so far on the PC.
Tried rebooting, and that didn't work... this is so odd, I don't even know where to start. Tried lowering the resolution, etc, graphics are already set to low quality.
