    same problem with skype video calls only

  • HTJAMES Jun 02, 2008

    A vertical yellow line appears on my skype screen. If I reduce the hardwae acceleration more than two steps, the screen goes black. At one or two steps the line is still there. At times a thin yellow line extends along the bottom right hand side of the screen. At times there are negative ghost images on the right side of the screen just like an old TV set on rabbit ears. ( you may have to ask some old guy about that.)

    I just bought a new Logitech webcam and have the same center yellow vertical line problem, and ghosts of other images on the left side of the line.

Right click on the desktop, go to Properties --> Settings --> Advanced --> Troubleshoot --> Drag the Hardware acceleration pointer to the left or adjust it then apply...this should solve the problem..

Same here... this annoying yellow line (wide vertical line) is really disturbing! It happens with some other model of webcam as well so I guess it is related to the software rather than to the hardware... any suggestions?

Using Skype 4.1 everything works fine with one small problem. Picture of party I am speaking with has a vertical yellow line down the center of his/her picture. How do I get rid of that line?

check your internet speed and make sure it is pretty good.

check also the other party's cam, maybe some hair or other tiny object is blocking the camera lens.
