I have Lenovo with Windows 7, my speakers and microphone working fine, but when I use Skype I have announcement "can't access your sound card" the camera works fine. I did check the settings and I read all the instruction on and everything is good, but I can't make calls.

I did "test call" with Skype and most of the time it works.

What is the problem?

Run System Update, and make sure all of your drivers are up to date (especially the Conexant audio driver). There was a fix in one of the versions.
