Re: Green Screen on Windows 8

I am having the exact same problem. With the same computer and getting a green screen. However other apps do not have the same problem. Please let meknow if you figure out how to fix it. Thanks.

Re: Green Screen on Windows 8

I feel all of your pain and offer a solution:

I purchased the same computer for my g/f's younger daughter as an early Christmas present. Wal-Mart special for $179. Racked my brain for several hours dealing w/HP Customer Support before my g/f's older daughter found the above link on another forum. Works fine on the new computer so far. Hope this helps all of you.

Re: Green Screen on Windows 8

yes, it works when in explorer, but when you try the app on the HP (wasn't able to get the $179 laptop as they were sold out but got the $279 HP 69BF Notebook 2000). When I open in internet explorer my video is no longer green. But when I use the app, my video is still green. Installed the newest version twice now. Did this fix your app version too?

Manker, use "desktop" in start, double click Skype shortcut to run Skype 6.0, don't run App.
