Skype is very particular about webcams using the latest drivers. If you installed the software using a CD the chances are the software is out of date.
Visit the Microsoft hardware support page
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/download.aspx?category=ICE&type=LifeCam&sku=68A-00001
Fill in the details and click 'GO'
Aquaint yourself with the information available by clicking on the link:-
"Microsoft LifeCam Readme and Troubleshooting Information"
All the information you require should be found here, Including the latest software to download and Customer Support
Check out any additional software you have to download if you are running Vista or Windows 7
Procedure to install software from the website:-
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Microsoft
Run the installer and choose your options when prompted
Connect your webcam when prompted.
Once you have your webcam installed you can configure it to the chat program of your choice.
When using Skype do not run your webcam using the Lifecam software but let Skype have full control

Goodluck... if not post a little more details on the prob. and ill get to the bottom of it for you...
