Hey Guys

One of my favorite games is The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, It ran fine on my windows 7 PC however when i made the upgrade to windows 8.1 the game started to look like it was jumping frames however there was no other indication that it was so i was wondering if my windows 8.1 could be causing a problem if so is there any fix for it, I would love to be able to mod Skyrim again, any help you could give me would be much appreciated

Could be a graphics driver issue.

You probably can't do that comparison now between w7 and w8.1 so maybe as a test, turn the graphics details down on the game. If it improves without skipping frames, then its quite possibly the graphics driver and you may need to check your manufacturer for updated ones.

If it continues, then the skipping could be caused by high cpu usage, whether it's the game or a background process. Check the games website and see if an update is required.

Did you install the graphics drivers when you upgraded or just used the generic ones that came with windows? That would be my first suspect...
