Not sure how to navigate with Windows 8 (new laptop)

I recently purchased an HP laptop with Windows 8.  iWith my older laptops, I had issues with sound.  With my new laptops, this skype has a totally different look and feel. I can't tell what the hell I'm supposed to do to video call someone.  Also, there's only a sound test (not a video and sound test). I only added $10 to my Skype credit.  Perhaps it costs more?? Please help.
