Preferred Solution: skype password token , not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I changed password for my Skype account reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed today and after all I spend some time to find out that this operation also changed password for my [email protected] account. I can now log in using [email protected] account only with
password that I set for Skype account (reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed). By the way email works with old password just fine. What the problem?! Why the same password for all now?!

I couldn't find the answer to this. Apologies if it is already posted somewhere

I have a Dell Precision 5510.
I have it hooked up to an external monitor using dual screen
The sound from a video on youtube (etc) works fine when the external monitor is unplugged, BUT NOT WHEN THE MONITOR IS PLUGGED IN. This confuses me.  Is there a solution?
Thank you.

A:5510: Audio from websites not working when external monitor is also hooked up. (But Skype sound still working)

Hello. What might be happening is after you connect to the external display, the audio switches to HDMI audio. To get the audio to emit from the laptop's speakers again, go to the Windows Sounds dialog and make Speakers the default playback device (right click). You might have to do this every time you connect an HDMI cable.

Mozilla Firefox

please help me find a way of sorting out this problem.
many thanks.

A:My 32-bit browsers and Skype are not working online but My 64-bit browser is working

only 64 bit browsers wiil work with 64 bit Operating sysytems....

Each of those you listed have 64 bit versions

Set up IE 8 first and get it connected to the net by going to Tool/options...hit the connections tab and fill it in.

When you install the others after fixing up IE... it will copy the connection information from IE and set up automatically.

Personally, I would stick to having just one browser...most of them do pretty much the same thing these days

If you lose your skype password. Skype Tech support is worse than useless. There has been an ongoing problem that they won't acknowledge where the password recovery email either takes 8-24 hours to arrive (and it expires in 6 hours) Or it never comes at all. If you manage to get a live chat with a human they will use the exact same recovery method, You can plead, beg, cry and scream and they will refuse to send you an immediate email "For your Protection". Bizarrely, any other email from the Skype.com domain usually arrives instantly. Which suggests to me that yes, my email is in fact set up correctly and is not blocking emails from Skype.  I've witnessed this with multiple people and multiple Skype Accounts. We can't *all* be doing it wrong.
There are several utilities on the web, but I'm not sure what I can trust. The free ones that I've found stink of malware. I'm supposed to download a special tool to enable the download? WTF!? I don't think so!
I'm willing to pay for a utility provided it's Portable.
I already have 4 people waiting for a solution to this in addition to myself. I consider myself an experienced computer tech and I'm considered a miracle worker by people in my neighborhood, but this is a nut that I just can't crack.

I've recently changed my Skype password to something as v$*irFvKN9jl but everytime when I start Skype I have to login by entering my username and password, can I make it automatic because searching for the password in LastPass is a bit annoying.


Read other answers

I'm a new Skype user (Skype Portable) and the only way I can get Skype to remember my password is to not sign out but use the Quit Skype option when right-clicking the taskbar entry. I found this by doing a global search.

Doing this leaves me signed in to Skype (Task Manager shows the two Skype entries), so I'm wondering if this could be a problem, security wise.

Also, if anyone does know of a way to get Skype to actually remember the password, maybe adding a line to an ini file (appinfo.ini ?) I'd sure like to know.

Thanks for any help.

Dear BleepingComputer Technician:
My mother-in-law was here recently helping my family with the birth of our new child.  After three weeks of using our computer, she suddenly wasn't able to sign into Skype.  Her password had been changed.  Then as we tried to reset the password we discovered her email address had been deleted.  She had just accessed and used her email the day before.  Her information was definitely stolen and I feel it was probably logged while using our computer.  The reason is that prior to her arrival my wife and I have noticed many pop-ups, especially when using Google Chrome.  Since we are living in China and I tire of being unable to access several websites, I had attempted to download a VPN browser software that a friend was using, and it was free of spyware/malware.  But in my haste, I downloaded and installed the software from a location that I am sure had spyware/malware software attached..  so now, I beg, please, help!
We are using Windows XP SP3..

Hello Everyone.

I've recently installed a 3Com wireless network. Since then, Skype has stopped working. It just comes up on the taskbar as 'Skype (Connecting)'.

What do you think could be the problem? Something to do with the settings in the router? The WAN Connection Type is PPPOE. Is this right?

Any help would be much appreciated!



A:Skype Not Working. Please Help!

Well it's pretty much positive that SKYPE stopped working do to the router since it happened at the same time. It's PPPoE if you have a username and password provided to your for your Internet service from your provider.

So a couple of days ago I noticed that Skype on my PC was acting weird. When I tried to open it, it wouldn't open. So then I turned my PC off and on and Skype still wasn't working. So then I tried to access it via the desktop short-cut and it opened, but it looked like 2 Skype windows were open at the same time, I then tried to close the first one but it wouldn't go away. Then I tried to sign in and it said that I was already signed in.Edit: Moved topic from Windows 7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

(not sure if this is the proper place for this post.)

for a month or so, skype has started lagging EXCESSIVELY for no reason. but only when in a call. I can hear the person clearly. though it tells me that there's a connection error between us. i also can't screen share. it tells me that it can't check my subscription. but EVERYTHING lags except the audio. meaning i can't add people to the calls because the buttons don't work. i can't talk to others while in the call because the skype window is lagging. ALSO, the ringing is being weird. so i'll hit the call button, and it will sit there for about 30 seconds. the person will answer the call, then it will start ringing for those 30 seconds that it did not.

i did try reinstalling like 3 times. it didn't fix the issue. so what should i do?

My problem is aggravatingly complex. Essentially, Skype stopped working about 5 weeks ago. Skype says it's a firewall issue, but the firewall was not an issue for over a year. And even when I turn off the firewall, I still have connection problems. After long waits for support from Skype and Comodo, and repetitious suggestions that I have followed over and over, the problem is still unresolved.

It all began right after a Windows XP update. I originally thought it had something to do with that, but Skype doesn't even acknowledge the issue. Then, 2 days ago, I found this webpage that says at the bottom: "Skype might start using 100% of CPU if you have TotalRecorder software installed and it is set as default I/O device for Skype."

The problem, I don't think, has anything to do with CPU usage. But it did begin when I was trying to record an interview with Total Recorder. I'd used it before, without problems. But this time I had set TR source from Skype to microphone, then back again. So, if there's an issue with TR & cpu, maybe there are other issues as well?

Skype support doesn't acknowledge this question either.

Like I said, I've tried all the solutions they've suggested; I opened ports, I changed the name of the skype.exe file, uninstalled and reinstalled, all kinds of things. Now, I'm not sure if my firewall settings have too many rules or what. Maybe it's best to just uninstall Comodo and reinstall, or c... Read more

I'd like to first say I do feel a bit silly posting this since I'm usually good with computers. But I literally cannot figure out the problem in this instance.

I have a Samsung laptop that runs on Windows 7, I have been trying to use Skype recently but it just won't cooperate. Skype was of course already installed and I tried using that, then after seeing that that wasn't working I decided to uninstall/reinstall Skype. I have now done this 3 times. It still won't work. To describe the problem simply, Skype will open and allow me to get to the first stages of logging in. The window opens and a box appears that would allow me to type in my username, but when I try type it in none of the letters appear and I cannot move off of this screen. I recently completely reset my laptop and cannot think of any software that would be inferring with Skype working, so if anyone has any advice I would be so so appreciative. If this is not enough information to diagnose a problem, feel free to ask for more. I really would like this fixed.

Thanks everyone!

Hi There

I'm not a techy person so be very specific. I have Windows Vista with a built-in web cam. Every time that I logged into Skype and try to connect with family and friends, I used to get a message that read something like this: "Cannot connect since there is another program opened that uses a web cam. Please close the program and try again." I don't have any programs opened.

I have programs in my desl top and not sure if they are causing the problem. They are as follows:
Cyberlink You Cam
Lightscribe System Software
Microsoft Silverlight

I tried again today but this time I did not get that message. I don't know what is going on. Also, I'm not sure if my web cam is broken. How do I check to see that my web cam is working properly or not??

I believe it's a common problem, though I couldn't find a solution to it.

So today at the morning internet stopped working properly. I have one PC, two laptops, and two smartphones here. The PC is connected with a cable, while other devices use Wi-Fi. And they all have the same problem - only Google.com and Skype works. On every device. So I believe the problem is either at the router or at ISP. Tried to restart the router - surprisingly, everything works for a minute or so. Later - nothing. So 6 hours passed and nothing changed yet.

Oh, and I noticed that everything works fine with VPN - that's what I'm doing now.

Also, I can succesfully ping anything.

A:Only Google.com and Skype is working

Try setting the router back to factory settings. Disconnect the power from the router for 30+ seconds, then re-connect.

You will subsequently have to re-configure your router to your desired settings (encryption, custom SSID, etc).

X-Trap is a famous anti-cheat program, that nearly every MMORPG Publisher out there uses for their games ( Not all of them )

What happens is that for some reason, SOME people have had issues with starting Skype, As it immediatly gets closed if X-Trap Loads. And others haven´t.
This has led me to believe that it may be system related.
So my question is... What could be happening on my system, that makes Skype act like this when X-Trap Loads? Possibly sharing files with another program? Something else running on my PC? Viruses? Malware?

what could be wrong. the router i am using is the befsx41 wired linksys router and i was wondering if i need to open my ports and if i do then could you tell me how to do it for my router

A:Solved: Skype Not Working

Exactly. Check your router's manual for how to port forward to your machines.. Skype's port needs are listed here: http://www.skype.com/help/faq/technical.html

Also, it's a good idea to use static addresses on your internal network because voip is highly dependant on these addresses not changing. So if you use DHCP locally, check in your router's manual to figure out how to use static IP's instead.

Hi Fred Knurke,

Have you tried uninstalling Skype using Revo Uninstaller (the free version is at the bottom of the page) and then reinstalling the latest build? Normally for most programs using the built in uninstaller in the Control panel (add/remove) will work, but Skype leaves traces behind, and Revo should be able to get rid of those for you.

If the cam isn't listed in Device Manager, that would indicate that it's not recognized by Windows.

not recognized = not found or not seen

So it's not connected, not connected properly, or it's faulty.

Hi, last night my Skype phone stopped operating, which had been OK for almost a year. I have a Sony Vaio laptop WinXP SP3. The phone is a wireless Philips VOIP321. The driver shows it's connected, and the Skype program shows all my contacts like usual as if nothing is wrong. Only thing is the antenna icon on the phone is blinking, shows that it is searching, but cannot pick up the signal. I've checked for updates, and reinstalled the Skype program, still no luck. The only thing that might have upset it, is that I created a Linux Rescue CD yesterday. I put it in my CD drive and had it boot the computer, then I removed it and booted normally. In all other ways computer is operating fine and as usual, except for Skype. Any ideas, thanks,...Tom

A:Solved: Skype not working

OK, I finally opened a bottle of wine, and after one and a half glasses, problem solved! But before that I uninstalled/ reinstalled Skype, uninstalled/ reinstalled Philips VOIP321 drivers, booted the poor machine several times, tried System Restore for the first time, successfully, I might add, still the stupid phone would not work. Then I'm thinking, I bought this Skype stuff in April of 08', wonder if the batteries on the phone are down. Well I don't have any AAA batteries on hand, I'll do the old take them out spin them around, and stick um back in. First thing that got me smiling was the little antenna icon on the phone was not blinking, yup, that was it, the darn batteries. Hopefully someone else will read this, and help them,...Tom

It looks like my computer got some redirected hostfiles; somehow they can be easily re-activated although I tried so many times already to delete them out with Ad-aware. I have AVG, Malwarebytes, zonealarm, superantispyware and more; however, only Ad-aware can detect the problems. Please help!

Hi, my browsers won't work on my laptop, but other programs such as skype and msn will. I've tried turning of the firewalls etc but that hasn't done anything.
I'm not very good with computers so any help would be appreciated.
I'm running windows 7.

A:Browsers not working but other programs such as skype/msn do.

Start with ...

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start, Programs\Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Hi all
I'm having a problem with my vista 64bit pc. The http protocol doesn't seem to be working properly all the time. Some times i can use the internet other i can't and its getting to be more and more not. However other programs like skype and windows live work okay, no problems at all.

I connect using a wired connection, although i have also tried wireless to see if that would help. I have run ad-aware, spybot and malwarebytes anti-malware, still the problem persists. I have turned off my zonealarm to see if that was stopping it somehow, nothing changed.

I usually use google chrome for the internet although i have tried firefox and IE, non work, when the internet is working its usually ok, no packet loss. then when it stops (usually after around 10 mins or so) i get 100% packet loss.

Now i know its something to do with my pc and not the router or connection as i have a laptop running xp pro that works fine on this connection.

Any help much appreciated. Its driving me absolutely nuts.


P.S. I have also tried this pc at my mums house on their internet, same problem.

Greetings to all.
My brother is desperately in need of help. His skype suddenly stopped working. When calls are made, he hears the person but the person doesn't hear him. I checked the speakers and they are fine but the microphone is not working.
The same with the inbuilt webcam. It doesn't initialise and skype doesn't recognise any webcam on the machine. Since the machine is new, I reinstalled windows 7 home thinking that the problem would be solved. But nothing happened. Here are the characteristics of the machine (from my-config.com)

I updated Skype and it now fails to load. I see the little blue icon spinning but it never turns green to say I am online. I have tried installing it again and even switched my connection. The only thing that fails on this PC is Skype. I am gaming online and my connection is rock solid.

Is there a fix?

A:Internet Is Working Skype Cannot Connect

Hello? Why no help? I have tried multiple fixes and still cannot connect to Skype.

Both of my mics work in windows; I can select them both as the default device and they respond to noise.

In skype, if i select MIC1 and make a noise, skype detects the noise.
However, if I select MIC2 in skype, it doesn't detect any nose.

Only MIC1 works in skype, but not MIC2.

Anyone know a solution?

I've tried re-installing skype and drivers etc. multiple times- didn't work.
