I went to my graphic card brand's web site and search for some updates, and updated them.

Re: Skype not opening after upgrading to Windows 8.1

I'm not sure where to look to find what type of system I have. Can someone tell me where to find it? I'm also having the same problem and want to have it fixed asap.

We have the same problem too. I have installed the desktop version which works fine. But that’s not the point (Microsoft now own Skype you’d think they would have tested their own Apps before the upgrade release for Windows 8.1)
