Hi I've recently come across an issue I've never encountered before and there just seems to be no way to fix it. I installed Skyrim Legends Edition from Steam, had a quick go of it and everything seemed fine. I then switched off my PC and gave my fans and chassis a clean then put everything back together and switched it all back on with a minor mistake where I plugged the VGA cable into the onboard graphics card which I do almost every time I unplug the cable from my PC then after correcting my error I logged back into my computer. Once I had loaded up I put Skyrim back on but everything was going twice as fast as though it was stuck on fast forward so I started raking the internet trying to find a solution to what I thought was a game based problem but to no avail.
After much hair pulling and frustration I decided to leave it a while and watch some videos instead until the other game I was downloading had finished but when I tried to play any video on my computer they too were also running on "fast forward". I've been all over the internet trying to find a solution (being trolled relentlessly by Google who, no matter what wording I use, gives me a million hits for tweaking tips to speed up my PC.)
I have tried every solution I have come across which has included re-installing my graphics drivers, switching my graphics card, changing the graphics quality setting in game, downloading optimizer programs and re-installing my OS but the problem has remained (strangely, even after the fresh OS install). I also tried changing the BIOS setting to make PCIe the first graphics device (a solution I got from here from another person who had a similar problem). This didn't work either. Here are my system specs,
