Re: Skype black screen

Hi, I recently came across the same issue on a customer computer that IE would just be a blank screen. It also affected Skype, that it was just a black screen. I couldn’t resolve it and had to just downgrade them to IE8 but recently I have discovered the cause as it just occurred on my laptop and another app that uses the IE control had a ton of errors come up about D3D10Warp.dll.

 

I took ownership of the file and gave myself full rights to it and then replaced it with one from another system and after closing and re-opening Skype I had a working app and IE was also fixed. On a 64-bit system you should put the file in C:\windows\syswow64, on 32-bit put it in C:\windows\system32 and your problem should be resolved.

Re: Skype black screen

After hours of trying to fix that problem(had the same), it turned out the solution is quite simple.

1. Uninstall "Microsoft LifeCam"(NOT THE DRIVER)
2. Restart your computer
3. Have fun with your webcam!

Hope it works for you as well :wink:

Re: Skype black screen

@abhilashnikhare, please try to install latest webcam and graphic card drivers for your OS. It seems like you have default Windows 8.x drivers installed and you should go to the manufacturers website and install proper drivers both for webcam nad graphic card.

Please try that and see if it helps.
