hi, recently encountered a skype problem. 1 night everything is fine, suddenly, while using skype video, my video suddenly disappeared. Then my show video option was gone as well. When i checked device manager, it shows unknown device. Tried reinstalling but nothing happened. Then i check my windows update and there is an update for my webcam. I downloaded it and the webcam worked fine using webcam toy. But when i opened skype, it became unknown device again. Tried resintalling and even windows update doesnt have a driver update anymore. PLEASE HELP ME GUYS

Here are some more methods you can try. Do these in order and then try running skype after ea method.
1. Turn your router/modem off. Wait a few minutes. Turn it on again.
2. Turn your wifi on and off your computer (Not sure what laptop you have. Sometimes there is a w-ifi switch on some laptops. On others they have to press an f-key of some sort. )
3. Run the cmd as adminstrator. Type ipconfig /release. Wait a few minutes. Type ipconfig /renew. Wait a few minutes
4. Try installing skype portable @ http://portableapps.com/apps/internet/skype_portable
Skype portable will not reinstall over your current skype program.
5. Try downloading an old version of skype such as Skype 6.9.0.106 or Skype 6.3.0.107
from this website http://www.oldapps.com/skype.php
Hope this works
