i'm using win 8 pro 64-bit on Asus N53sv laptop. Everything is ok in win 7. In win 8 behavior is the following:
The only way to force skyp to work is to reboot in Safe with Network mode. Everything is working where without any issues. I can realy quit skype there.
Booting without autorun and booting without non-windows services doesn't help. The same errors as in normal mode.
Need advice what to do. Really can't work without it and want to stay in win 8 as well. Seems that a problem in drivers, but how to determine in which one?
What happens if you run Skype in the Safe Mode With Networking?
In Safe Mode with Networking skype working fine. Messages are working, also i can quit Skype (can't in normal mode).
That's a pretty clear indication that something else running on your computer is conflicting with Skype.
From a run box type 'msconfig' and select the Startup Tab. You can uncheck the applications (disable all for testing purpose) you wish to stop from loading with windows.
Restart your Computer.
Now try running Skype.
You can also try turning services on one by one and see what causes skype to not working properly.
Alternatively, Go into safe mode w/n look at which services are running and write them down.
Restart in normal mode run msconfig, you can disable the services one by one. Just check the services that you have wrote down and restart the computer. Your computer will restart loading only those services (the same ones safe mode w/n uses)
Check Skype if it works then you know that one of the unchecked services is causing the problem. You then have the lovely time consuming task of narrowing down which one it is.
Tamim, i saw this your suggestion in another topic, thank you. Tested it and as i wrote in my first message the only mode where Skype is working is Safe Mode with Network. Reboot without startup (autorun) and also reboot without non-microsoft services lead to the same Skype behavior as in Normal mode/
What are the running processes on your computer in the normal mode?
you can also run Speccy and post the info from it (save as text and remove your windows serial no.,compress and attach then)
Here is speccy output: http://pastebin.com/5mzW6Pba
it is after windows reset. the only installed apps are chrome and skype. all the updates and drivers from windows updates. before this i tried drivers from asus (for win 7) - result was the same.
What happens if you remove the Sublime Text (sublime_text.exe)?
