Skype Blue Screen of Death

  1. Sep 30, 2008 #1
    Hi. I have an HP Pavilion dv6000 running Window's Vista with a 2.0 GHz processor and 3 GB RAM.

    For some reason, whenever I have a video or voice chat on Skype (version 3.8), my computer gives me a Blue Screen of Death.

    As you may guess, this is very annoying when trying to have formal meetings.

    Is there any solution to this?

    Is Skype and your graphics card driver up to date?

    Yes. Both of them.

    It seems your problem is fairly common.

    I would post your problem over there.

    My original problem ended up getting fixed in a Skype update a long time ago (I also have a different computer now).

    Your problem is likely caused by something different.
