    Actually, it turned out that this wasn't the exact solution. I found that I had both the Windows firewall and McAfee firewalls both enabled. As soon as I disabled the McAfee firewall, I was able to complete the Skype setup and it works like a charm! Thank you for the hint that allowed me to figure it out!

Exit/Close your current Skype by clicking in system try Skype icon (down near the right corner green spot) and choosing “Quit” from there if needed.
Open firewall, in programs, delete Skype.
Run Skype and allow to connect
This also effects SP2 users who should follow above procedure.
With SP2 firewall.
Disabling external firewall will enable XP firewall by default.
So if you disable any other firewall XP firewall will now block your connections.
So remove Skype from XP firewall program list as well and for more info contact http://tinyurl.com/m7ghqz

I have no driver for ACER ASPIRE ONE ZG5


Hi, welcome to FixYa.

First, what is your operating system. I assume you are using either Windows XP or Windows 7.
Get the driver from here:

I have downloaded skype successfully onto my acer aspire netbook. where will I find it on the netbook?


Hi,

You can try to search it on your computer if you're using Windows XP. Open my computer than Press Control + F type the name of the program then select the your hard drive the click on Search.

Windows Vista and Seven: Click on Start then on the lower left under All Programs or Programs just type Skype. and you'll see the installer. The next time you download a file make sure you verify the specific location where you save it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I wipe out an aspire one netbook?


Use a Windows installation CD and re-install Windows; the CD version must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Acer WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.

I try to use skype on aspire 1 but fail the call test: I cannot


First: Check if the device is installed and working properly - My Computer-(right click)-Manage-Device Manager - be sure there is nothing wrong in "Sound, video and Game Controllers" section.
If there is something wrong, you will see it immediately, then fix it.
If in that section all is OK, then
1) go to Acer FTP site and get Realtek driver there (ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_150/driver/Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772.zip).
2) Uninstall running Realtek driver using Control Panel and reboot.
3) When XP after reboot will ask for driver installation, just cancel this and install Realtek driver downloaded.
4) Check with Skype your voice recording and enjoy.
All this is valid if you do not have your microphone physically broken. Tested by myself - I had the same situation.

Downloading skype onto my acer aspire one netbook


For aspire one you need to download the Fedora 7 package from the Skype Website.

Afterwards, just do what your aspire asks you to do. When everything is installed, just press alt+F2, type in "skype", en press "Run". Skype will start up. That's it
