Webcam not working with Skype

I have bought a new Creative Live! Cam Socialize HD AF.

 

It works fine with Skype on my laptop and works fine with Creative software on desktop however on the desktop i cant get the image correct in Skype.

 

Here is a picture of what it shows:

Why is this and how can i fix it? Is it a hardware issue?

Re: Webcam not working with Skype

Can someone help me with this?????

 

It must be a Skype compatibility issue with some hardware in my desktop as it works on my desktop with other webcam software and also works on my laptop on Skype.
