I have a problem with my skype on my laptop. I can receive messages (not sms) from my friends but I cannot reply them. When I send messages but it shows "pending" .

I uninstalled Skype and downloaded again, deleted all caches and history on Skype Settings but it's still same..

What should i do to solve this problem?

I'm using Windows 8 64 bit.

  • Do you have recently installed YouTube to MP3 converter or similar software on your computer? – herry Dec 17 '13 at 19:14
  • No, I didn't. I was using Skype last night. This problem occured this morning. – iwocan Dec 17 '13 at 19:21

Sounds like an internet related issue.

You could try to perform a ipconfig /flushdns,netsh winsock reset, and netsh int ip reset in a command prompt ran as an administrator.

Also, have you restarted your computer since the issue started to occur? A fresh boot usually fixes most issues.

  • Thank you. I did everthing that you wrote but it's still same. I really don't know what happened. I was using Skype very good last night. – iwocan Dec 17 '13 at 19:20

I finally found the problem..

Skype Version 11 and Windows 8 doesn't work together. You should delete your files in Program Files(X86)/Skype as well as Appdata/Roming/Skype then uninstall the Skype from Program and Features. Then you should install an older version of Skype (i.e. Skype version 9) .

It works for me and i hope it works for you too..

  • Simply deleting files from Program Files is a poor solution and will undoubtedly cause you problems elsewhere. – Dan Atkinson Jul 25 at 10:04
