Default Mini9 webcam and Skype - 05-15-2009, 04:43 PM

I have been trying to VC with my daughter so we can see/talk to each other while she is in Costa Rica. She has a Dell m1330 laptop running Vista Home.

I have a Mini 9 running XP. We both loaded Skype (ver.4) on our lptps last night and connected to each other for exactly 1 minute 5 seconds then my computer totally froze and I had to shut down via the power button. We tried it twice and it did the exact same thing after 1min5sec. again.

No clue as what to do next...any suggestions out there?

Try reinstalling Skype, and maybe try running the webcam drivers from Dell.
