I've installed Skype multiple times over the last few months, and each time, I've had the same problem - when I try the test call, the connection takes a really long time, and the voice is terribly chopped. Just the initial "hello" takes more than five seconds with all the gaps in it... at this rate, I won't be able to use Skype.
However, I have no internet issues (quick downloads, quick uploads) and there are no audio issues. I'm typing this while listening to online radio, and it sounds perfectly fine.
I have the same hardware and application without problems. If the internet connection shows no issues, but only the Skype application is having troubles, I would suggest to troubleshoot the Skype applciation. Check in Skype for any possible other applications causing "load" on the Skype application;
- Click on the sentence : manage other applications using Skype and see if there is anything "odd".

The first place I would start is looking at the Hard Drive. If the Hard Drive is bad then it can cause a failed install. You can also run another reinstall. Every once and a blue moon a fresh reinstall will not install right and you have to restart.
Have you Googled the beep codes? This is most likely your solution. You should do the RAM test on your system.
Blue Screen Of Death
Remove all USB attached devices.
You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode). Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC. Opening case. Remove all RAM. Use static precautions!
Re-install Windows. Clean install works best. All data will be lost.
Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.
It is the operating system which requires refreshing in a computer. So removing the present windows and instaling new one would definitely solve the problem, but b carefull as u ve to face some trouble with regards to the drivers
I personally think all AIO PC's like the Vostro 320 are lemons because they have heat issues due to poor ventilation. The internals aren't easily accessible to the average user. And when one thing breaks inside the customer almost always has to send the whole unit back to the company to get fixed.
That being said, wireless adapters do frequently die due to overheating.
Luckily wireless adapters are very inexpensive. www.newegg.com has several decent usb adapters for less than $10 and with FREE shipping.
I've personally purchased this exact model several times and never had a problem with it. It's super small and plugs into an open USB slot. Most times your operating system will even auto install the drivers for you too so it really doesn't get any easier than that.
first check your is working or not
then open control panel - administrative tools - services - printer spooler services - double click the services - click stop button - next click start button - choose automatic then give the print if not coming connect other pc to ur printer check printer
Remove the power cord.
Locate the 120V / 240 V ac selector switch. (within 4 inch from the power inlet)
Move it back and forth few time.
Make use it's set to the correct voltage selection.
Reconnect power cord and power up.
This AC selector switch can get shifted and set to different position.
I guess the obvious question here is do you actually have a webcam fitted? If we assume yes then does the camera actually work? Again assuming yes, and assuming we're talking about skype then go into tools>options>video settings. Your camera should be listed, if it is and you are just getting a blank screen, you could try installing a program like many cam http://download.manycam.com/ Now it gets a bit weired. Open the many cam program and go into sources and select your webcam and (hopefully) it should show it working. Assuming it is then re-open skype as before and select manycam as the camera and it should then work. I've had to do this work around on a few HP laptops where the built in cam wouldn't work on skype.
This problem is usually caused by an error in the ports of Skype and MS office 2007. If you are using skype, you uninstall it completely in your computer. Install MS OFFICE 2007. You can then install SKYPE back to your computer.
Let me know if it still doesn't work by replying to this solution.
This is a fairly common problem, in particular with older machines. Perhaps ones that have OEM sound cards (like Dell, HP, etc) that might be more or slightly different then the common retail versions. (The same can happen with similar OEM video cards too).
What happens is that Windows Update incorrectly thinks it found a better sound driver for you. And will probably install it automatically for you if you chose the "Express" setting at the update web screen. Instead run the "Custom" option and only install the important/urgent updates but don't check the "Hardware" update for the sound card.
To get your old sound card working again you might have to uninstall the sound driver that the update installed previously. Go to "Control Pannel", "Add or Remove Programs" and check the box "Show Updates". Find the sound driver and uninstall it.
If this still doesn't fix the problem go to the Computer manufacture's web site and down load the latest/last official sound card driver for your machine. Some times this is complicated as a particular model can have more then one sound card offering. If this is the case, download all of them. Install the driver. If you get a message about "unsupported sound card" or similar, then try one of the other drivers (assuming there were multiple choices).
