Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Skype hi I am experiancing problems trying to download skype I have never tried to download anything before as I feel a bit computer illiterate!! Whenever I press the download skype box a box pops up asking if I want to run or save the file . I then click to run it, as soon as I do this another box pops up saying the publisher could not be verified and am I sure that I want to run this file, I again click run. then another box pops up it says c:/documentsandsettings etc underneath is what I presume is the document name and then at the end it says .exe is not a valid win32 application. I am not sure what I need to do to my computer in order to download skype and have a friend moving to aus that has it so if anyone can help I would be most greatfull. Thanks

First of all try removing Skype from your system, then download again, and re-install the Skype software. You may find this cures the problem.

Hi Lolita,

Please try to clear and remove the skype again that been installed to your computer go to START then CONTROL PANEL pick a category "ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAM". The currently installed program will appear to view and find the "SKYPe 5.5 & skype click to call" click the two to remove. And then try to install and download SKYPE again.

Hope this would help. Thanks for using FixYa : )

Whenever we try to open skype a dialoge box apppears showing fatal error failed to load library d3d9.dll.


You will have to re-install the Skype application in order to get rid off the error.
Please follow the below step:
1. download and install the Revo uninstaller application online(It's free).
2. Look for the "Skype" application and select the "uninstall" option.
3. Select "Advance" scan and remove all the remaining files of skype.
4. Reboot the computer.
5. download the d3d9.dll file from the following website http://www.dll-files.com/pop.php?dll=d3d9
6. Copy the d3d9.dll file and paste it at the following location C:\windows\system32
7. You will have to register the dll file before installing the skype application. To register the dll file:
Click on "Start" menu and select the "Run" option or Simply Windows key+R
Then, type regsvr32 d3d9.dll and click 'OK" .
8. Once the dll file is registered, you can install the Skype application and continue using it.
I hope this should fix the issue.
Thanks, Vicky

Skype doesn't quite work...


I have the same hardware and application without problems.
If the internet connection shows no issues, but only the Skype application is having troubles, I would suggest to troubleshoot the Skype applciation.
Check in Skype for any possible other applications causing "load" on the Skype application;
- Advanced
- Settings
- Advanced
- Click on the sentence : manage other applications using Skype and see if there is anything "odd".

It would be nice to hear from you to see if anything helps.

Error drive c


hi abrb1220,

connect the hard disk to another pc, if the same error appears, means that the HDD is "dead", doesn't worth any effort because it's time is over.
