Be sure to contact the Skype Support like this might be a known issue and they might have the solution.
There is also information and on the Skype Forums.

Skype - Support

Skype - Forums

Also check with the manufacturer of the system, their drivers and documentation support online and ask
their forums (if any).


You will probably need to reload the drivers of the device and any camera control software.

Login as an administrator.

Double-click Control Panel / Device Manager - Imaging - writing down of the brand and model of camera.
on this subject and on the tab of the driver is version. Now, click on update drivers (who are unable to do anything as MS
is far behind the pilots of certification). RIGHT click on the camera - UNINSTALL - REBOOT - it
will update the driver stack.

Now, go to the system manufacturer's website and download the latest driver for the camera and the other related camera
software (if not more recent get the same).

Download - SAVE - go to them and RIGHT CLICK - RUN AS ADMIN - reboot after each driver.

Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

Then let windows updates on however prevent loading of drivers who are often older than the
those that you have installed. If updates suggests a pilot and then HIDE it and watch manually to see if their
really is a more recent version (at the time system manufacturer and the sites of the manufacturer of the device).

    I have a network of offices with windows 7 and XP PC 6 PC 7. Each day network neighborhood loses the xp computers. I can always ping them but they do not appear on the network. The PC xp always had access to the internet and can still ping windows 7 PC normally, but I can't connect to the shares or see them in the network neighborhood. The question seems to come and go during the day and can be due to the network traffic? I am lost at this point. A reboot of the xp PC is not resolved, but a restart of the server main window file 7 pc solves it for a while. Help!

  • When I open my pictures folder I can't image, what I see is a generic file name... Y at - it an option that I can use if I can see my photos without having to open it? __

    There is none

    When I go to the images and select views and select Extra Large icons, I can see the images above the file name.  Frankly, I don't know how to avoid having the picture show, even though I never wanted that.  He has no control, I know to show representations of just generic file or show pictures showing images being the default value.  Maybe something is happening with your system.  If this does not work, after return and we will try to solve the problem.

  • Lightroom does not import photos from camera or office. I can see them in the section overview of Lightroom, but when I click on import, said simply that they cannot be read.  Help!

    Lightroom does not allow me to import pictures from my camera or my office. They appear in the preview of little Lightroom and I select the ones I want to import, and then add my info etc and manipulation of files metadata, but then when I hit just IMPORT keeps saying that they cannot be read.  SO FRUSTRATING.

    To change the permissions on a folder, click the padlock icon in the corner of the info box. You will be asked your admin username and password (can be the same as yours if you are the only user on the computer). Then, you will be able to change permissions.

    But I agree that user is not the real destination folder. To be sure, right-click on the destination in Lightroom and then choose 'Show in Finder' get info on this issue.

  • I can print is more than a Web site. I can in other browsers, but not Mozilla. Help

    I used to be able to print any time I had to. Printing became so small that I couldn't read. Then the pages I printed out from the website, printed white pages. I contacted Thunderbird because it was first noticed on email when I tried to print something on a Web site, I was told that it was a problem of Mozilla. So I then tried to print directly from the Web site and got the same thing. Nothing. The page is completely blank when printing.

    These suggestions are not the problem and I contacted HP and they have run all diagnostics and they say that the problem is not with the printer or the software. Print all other browsers, but not Mozilla

  • cannot sync my email, it says to use an updated browser that I did, but still cannot get it to sync

    what I put up a new e-mail account, because I thought that I could sync it, but I connect to my account and it says: not verified email account, so I check and send it me email account on internet explore, and when I open and try to verify the account he said I use an outdated browser. My Firefox browser is the most recent but I can't sync my email so I still keep internet explore just to check my email on the computer. Am I crazy or I do something wrong?

    I do not understand the synchronization of your e-mail account.

    First of all, neither Firefox nor IE will make 'e-mail. But they both will allow you to access your e-mail via a Web webmail site.

    In order for Firefox to check your configuration of the synchronization, you need to access the e-mail that Mozilla sends you to activate an account in Firefox when using Firefox. Then when reading this email in Firefox and click on the activation link in the email. You can try copy'n "paste from IE [and your webmail] in Firefox and see which would work, but it has not worked for me, a few years ago, when I tried with an older version of Firefox and version 1.1 of the previous synchronization."
