Question about Creative Labs Live! Cam Voice Webcam
All of the sudden I've got a fixed yellow line down the center of my screen during SKYPE video calls....Anyone know how to fix the problem?? OS is Windows XP 2nd edition....latest version of SKYPE available...
I found this solution in http://forum.skype.com/index.php?showtopic=105497 - it worked for me.
1 - click "start" and choose the option to "run";
2 - type "dxdiag" and confirm in OK;
3 - a screen will appear with "DirectX Diagnostic Tool";
4 - chooses the "display" tab;
5 - disable the options "DirectDraw Acceleration" and "Direct3D Acceleration"

Re solution #4. Disabled only "Direct3D Acceleration". The yellow line has gone. With both disabled the picture is pixelated.
Thanx James T.

I have had the same as solution #6 however, sometimes it works and other times it does not!! if it does not, then i have to live with it. I went to download another driver too but it seemed to be a really big pain and now im living with it. sometimes works and others not. It also seems to be worse with the latest version of skype. I shouldn'[t have installed the newest version. I had better luck with older version but I do not know how to get it back!!!

I have fixed the yellow stripe problem on Skype by going the the intel link, scanning on their site for driver updates and it showed an update for me which I installed and the yellow stripe has gone. Here is the link and hope it helps others.

Solution #5 worked for me but I also had to turn it down 2 notches to make it go away. Thanks for the help everyone.

I turned the hardware acceleration down as "guest" suggested, but I had to turn it down several spots. however, once I turned it back up, the video was still working normally.

This does not help. Any other ideas?

This can be fixed by right clicking on the desktop and selecting - Properties - Settings Tab - Advanced Button - Troubleshoot Tab - move hardware acceleration pointer one notch to left - OK - OK.
