    Need help solving the problem of sound when video-calling on Skype - sound quality is poor.

    When video skyping there is a hallow or echo crackling sound that I hear from my computer. It is as if it is coming from the other users computer, or the speakers aren't configured properly! I asked the caller if they can hear it & they can't, they hear me clearly.

    Have done a Echo Sound Test to Skype and can hear the test service without any problems or any noises except my voice and the play back recording is clear. I checked my speakers, they appear to be working in good order, and the problem only occurs when on Skype, it gets so bad at times I can't hear the caller because of the crackling interference.

    Type of laptop: Toshiba Satellitte C660-F526
    Purchased: 2012
    OS: Windows 7
    Skype Version:
    Speakers: Realtek High Definition Audio

    Please advise.
