error: driver_irql_not_less_or_equal_e22w8x64.sys

[ Edited ]

I just got a new laptop with windows 8. Installed Skype for desktop and ran it, chatted with friends an the other day, I turned the computer on and I was unable to get into skype.

 

Every time I write my account name and clicked log in my computer crashed.

 

The error I get is "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal_e22w8x64.sys".

 

I'm feeling extremely dissapointed to have purchased a great laptop and due to a low quality OS , windows 8, I'm unable to use Skype.

 

I tried getting the app version of Skype, I had not wanted to make a microsoft account but I made out as a desperate attempt to get Skype working. I installed it and it didn't work either, it just opens and closes the blue Skype app screen.

 

I'm pretty upset because this all made me create a windows app account thing, which I did not want to make, and it ALSO made me merge my skype account into that filthy windows account trash.

 

Can someone help me solve this problem, please?

Unfortunately it looks like your laptop comes with bad drivers. e22w8x64.sys points to something called Killer NIC, which may be more aptly named than it seems at first. A bad network driver can cause problems in anything that connects the to internet.

 

I would take the laptop back and switch it to some other model that's not broken.

You can install the previous Skype 6.0.0.126 version using this msi-installer:

Thanks, this problem was driving me crazy~  But the older version of the skype works fine now.

btw, the remove/reinstall Killer NIC driver does not work for me, I guess I will stick to the old version of skype until they finally have someone look into the question and try to solve it.
