Can't send IM's

Got a weird bug today which hasn't occured for me for the past 3-4 years that I have been using Skype.

I can't send any IM's. When I hit the Enter button nothing happens. I can send "Smileys" by choosing them from the "smiley-menu" but I can't send them by typing the commands in the chat window.

I have tried reinstalling Skype, installed an older version, installed a newer version and restarted my computer several times. It's only in Skype I have this issue and the Enter button works fine at the login screen when I start Skype.

 

I'm using Windows 7 with the latest updates and a homebuilt computer which hasn't had any issues similar to this one before.

Any help here? It's getting really frustrating and it still hasn't fixed itself. I've tried absolutely everything I can think of with no success at all.

Re: Can't send IM's

Just noticed that I can also copy what other people have said and paste it into my chat window and press enter and that works perfectly. But I still can't send anything that i write myself.

Re: Can't send IM's

Whenever I send an IM to anyone, I just see a dark circle right next to my message. It never goes through, nor do I receive any messages. What is going on?

Are you and your conatcts "Online" on Skype? The status icon (the one next to the name) must be solid green with a white checkmark inside.
