Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop ?

Skype doesn't quite work...

\015 Hi:I've installed Skype multiple times over the last few months, and each time, I've had the same problem - when I try the test call, the connection takes a really long time, and the voice is terribly chopped. Just the initial "hello" takes more than five seconds with all the gaps in it... at this rate, I won't be able to use Skype.However, I have no internet issues (quick downloads, quick uploads) and there are no audio issues. I'm typing this while listening to online radio, and it sounds perfectly fine.Any hints are appreciated.\015

Answers :

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;
\015\012- Advanced
\015\012- Settings
\015\012- Advanced
\015\012- Click on the sentence : manage other applications using Skype and see if there is anything "odd".
\015\012
\015\012It would be nice to hear from you to see if anything helps.
