Re: Skype display problem

Do you have an nVidia display adapater? 

 

If so, see if the suggestions in this post help:

Re: Skype display problem

I haven't seen a solution for that problem with the sis card, but you're not the only one who's had it:

You might make sure you have the latest driver for your display adapater.  Other than that, I don't have any ideas at the moment.  Maybe someone else will chime in with a more helpful suggestion.

Re: Skype display problem

I solve the problem so far.

After formatin my computer I download latest driver from sis (ver 3.92). But it has problem with skype.

Now I uninstallthe driver and install ver 3.65g which download from my laptop official site.

Now it seems everything is OK.

Thanks for your help.
