Skype doesn't work well on my laptop! HELP!

Hello every one,

 

I have a little trouble with using skype on my new laptop.  The video call quality is not good.  It is laggy and not clear.  It is like you are watching a slow video and your disc gets scratched. 

My laptop has core i7 processor, graphic card Radeon 1GB, 4gb ram, and window 7 home premium. However, Skype works very well on the other laptop of mine, and this one has only intel pentium processor, graphic card on board, 4gb ram, and also window 7 home premium. I could even open skype and play game on this one, but I couldn't on the i7 one.

Can anyone help me to fix this problem? or explain to me and show me how to improve my video call quality?

 

Thanks a lot
