It may be that your Government or other authorities are blocking Skype transmission over the Internet. That happens in the UAE.
Try using a personal VPN service to solve the problem. Skype works perfectly every time.

Hope this helps

Problems with sound on skype

You did not specify which operating system you are using. For Windows Vista, go into Windows control panel, then click on sound and check your settings. Make sure the device you are using is checked. You can click on the device to see the levels that are set and click on the advanced tab to adjust the quality settings.

I cannot get skype in the last two weeks. why^^

If you are using the latest version, v5, then try uninstalling and reinstalling the software. If you are using an older version then upgrade.

If using Vista this fix may also help:

1. Exit Skype on your PC

2. Go to "C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Skype\" directory

3. Delete your account (I deleted all my accounts)

4. Launch the Skype

5. Enjoy.

If you are still having issues then contact Skype directly. There customer support is quite good. (

I try to sign in on skype and it says, "Skype can't connect. Get help fixing this probolem."

  • If you are on a network that uses a proxy server, make sure your proxy settings are correct.
  1. In Internet Explorer: In the menu bar, click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings.
  2. In Skype, in the menu bar click Tools > Connection options...
  • Make sure your firewall allows exceptions.
  1. If you are using Windows Firewall, click Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall, and make sure that Don't Allow Exceptions is NOT ticked.
  2. If you are using a different firewall, click Start > All Programs and select your firewall. Make sure that exceptions are allowed. If Skype is listed in the Exceptions tab, remove it.
  3. Sign in to Skype. When prompted, select Yes to allow Skype to connect to the internet.
  • Ensure that Skype is able to use port 80 and 443 as alternatives for incoming connections.

I can login to Skype with my older Sony with XP,but I can't login with my new Toshiba with vista. What's the problem with vista?

Dear sir, there is no problem with Vista, but unfortunately Skype does not support Windows Vista as of version 3.2. But in rare case it works fine with Vista but you have to install new audio video drivers plus your Vista should be updated. If it will work for you then good enough otherwise you have to wait till the new version or till skype supports Windows Vista.
Thank you very much and hope it was helpful for you, dont forget to write us about how did you go.
Regards Fahad
