* Are you running the latest version of Skype?
* What error messages have you received?
* Have you checked in Event Viewer?
* What software have you installed in the last week that may be creating problems?
* Have you worked your way through
* Have you tried a System Restore to a date PRIOR to the problem?

Windows 7 64bit
skype freezes my laptop


I have a similar problem. I've got Windows 7 Home premium 64bit. When I use skype, after some time of video chatting everything freezes and the only way is to press the switch on button for 5sec and then turn the laptop back on again. It happens after random periods of time and not every time I use skype. I've checked and in the Windows log the following errors are described: source- CAP12, event ID- 4107. I think I've got the most up to date skype version- Can anyone please say what it means and what could be causing this problem?
