BSOD when opening Skype ks.sys

Heyo everyone, its my first post and I really need help, I get this error after I reinstalled my OS using HP image DVD's but thats not the problema cuz I've reinstalled again using a clean copy of Windows 7.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Is Windows fully updated, including Optional updates?

Yes, run all updates.

Be sure to also install any optional updates....your video and audio drivers look outdated, and I suspect that is where the issues may lie. Windows update should install newer drivers for you.
