Problems with Video Preview

I recently started using Windows 8 OS on an older laptop. Not sure if that fact will be relevant to my problem. After installing Skype again, I have discovered a slight problem. During a call, the other person can see and hear me perfectly fine. However, I cannot see myself in the preview. Skype tells me that my webcam is working fine, but nothing ever shows up in the preview box besides total blackness. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Skype, even older versions. I've also searched all over and cannot find a solution to this problem. Please help!! :C
