Just signed up with Skypes and purchased a video and connected it to computer.  I see the picture but cannot hear my voice on the test.  Do I have to download something or purchase something else to get it working.  What about a download or will that affect my windows 7.   Also, it said first call free.  Thought skypes was free?  Please help. Thanks so much.

I'm the same, today Skype was so bad, I couldn't even hear myself or the other person.  Then a message came up, that something was wrong when I went to the audio test screen. Finally, I made a call to a landline and I could hear them, but they couldn't hear me.  I couldn't hear me either on the call.  Great flaming balls of Crap!!!  It was father's day.

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

When I tried to call my contact on skype from my laptop using Windows 7 Professional, a pop up message said, "this computer has no recording capabilities". However the computer has recording capabilities. I turned on the microphone and tested with skype voice. When i responded to the advice to speak after a beap I did so but later my voice could not be heard. Besides the microphone is producing an irritaing sound and have to reduce volume significantly. WHAT SHOUD I DO?

It's true!  Nobody from Skype monitors this at all!  And it hasn't even recruited power users to provide community support. 

 

But they still offer this page to mollify us, to make it seem like they care.  They clearly don't.
