Unit has worked well for two months but now refuses to load Skype details, showing on screen "System is starting up" but this never happens. My router is working fine on connected computers, and I have tried switching Ethernet connections with no success. Handset connects with landline and also responds to call button on base station, but Skype has disappeared.

close the voip philips application from the task bar. Then do the same for skype. Now Start Skype again followed by the voip software. If that doesnt work uninstall both software and reinstall installing the voip 080 first, then upgrading the skype. You may still receive a warning at first but it will work
Your skypin number should be associated with an account on skype. So all you have to do is to login using the associated account when you turn on your phone, do this by using the phone's controls to enter in your skype account and password.
I have the same problem but what i did is to ru my XP in safe mode with networking and saw that is working ok. after that, i just locked on which services are working on normal mode and not shown on safe mode. found the service that was doing the problem (HP netwoking for my HP J6413 printer) and now working on some way to make it load only after the skype and the driver loaded.
I had this same problem... If you use Microsoft Outlook for emails, then this might be the solution: Open Skype and click on View, and untick the 'Show Outlook Contacts'.
Hopefully this will cull the list of contacts and will enable the Philips voip phone to view contacts again... Perhaps it's because the Outlook contacts are vCards - something which the Philips phone can't recognise?
I resolved this problem by unplugging the unit for a few seconds, waiting for the system to reset, then pushing the reset button, and waiting for the system to reset a second time. After that, the phone worked perfectly again.
