OH NO! this is getting worse: now it just did that WITHOUT Skyrim. It just stopped working and we had to hold down the off button. This has never happened before.

No errors. And now it's completely dead. Every 5-10 mins it just does he same thing. I wont bother turning it on Cus I know what'll happen. I'm starting to fear my PC is gone...why did Skyrim do this to my PC?

Is it worth mentioning: I had installed virtual drives and on my computer they'd disappeared? No option to open an j drive or anything?

Any app or game that is graphic intensive puts a load on your PC. Your graphics processor and CPU will work harder and get hotter. If one or the other overheats bad things can happen. Repeated or excessive overheating can result in permanent damage to components. You should have stopped playing Skyrim and fixed the problem. Now you will have to try and figure out what went south and if you can fix or replace it. You will want to inspect your system for proper air flow. Make sure your CPU heat sink and fan are free from dust etc, and that the fan is working properly. Do the same thing with your graphics card and power supply. Booting up into the BIOS setup screen puts minimal load on your PC, its pretty well just sitting there at idle. If you want to listen and locate the fan noise thats where I would do it.

Okay, thanks for the suggestions and I will try it, but if it's the case then: why is it crashing even in just regular operations and safe mode? Is even that putting pressure on it?

It could be crashing now because something was damaged when it overheated. It could also be that some files got corrupted when it locked up. If it freezes in the middle of a read or write to the hard drive the file system can get messed up. You may have to repair Windows on top of sorting out any hardware problems.

if i were you i'd stop playing around with it before you do more damage. do as the others said and open your case up and see if you can see any damage . or take it to a shop and have them check it for you.
