I'm having the exact same problem. Both of us are running the newest versions. I hear the constant high pitched feedback on both my PC and Mac. Still haven't figured out a solution. Any advice?

I'm having the same exact problem, but we're both on Windows. It just won't stop!!!! This needs fixed, and fast.

Did this ever get resolved or does anyone know a way of sorting this.  I have the same issue and have a new macbook (3 weeks old) and will be using Skype almost every day.  I only get this when talking to someone else on a lap top and not when I talk to someone on a pc.....  Any help to resolve and remove the high pitched incessant beeping will be great.  Thank you

That sound is a form of feedback that occurs with skype and does not occur with other "egG" products.  One solution is to use headphones. This will seperate the incoming and outgoing audio streams. I hope this helps and I wish skype the best. But the beeping sond sure makes it hard to enjoy skype.

I know this is an old thread but has Skype done anything to help prevent this, I am having this problem severely.  Chirping screech gets extremely loud at some points, very unpleasant.

I'm having the same problem...did you ever resolve this issue?  I hear it constantly in my headphones, but the person I'm speaking with doesn't.

I have this issue as well. I run a PC, Windiws 7 and have the past months experienced this. I reasoned that my headset was getting really old, so maybe that was the problem, so I just bought a new one today, and the high pitch is still there. It is really annoying, and kinda ruins the experience.

I finally had to buy a new wireless headset (Logitech) and the beeping sound is gone...crossing my fingers!
