    I'd like to first say I do feel a bit silly posting this since I'm usually good with computers. But I literally cannot figure out the problem in this instance.

    I have a Samsung laptop that runs on Windows 7, I have been trying to use Skype recently but it just won't cooperate. Skype was of course already installed and I tried using that, then after seeing that that wasn't working I decided to uninstall/reinstall Skype. I have now done this 3 times. It still won't work. To describe the problem simply, Skype will open and allow me to get to the first stages of logging in. The window opens and a box appears that would allow me to type in my username, but when I try type it in none of the letters appear and I cannot move off of this screen. I recently completely reset my laptop and cannot think of any software that would be inferring with Skype working, so if anyone has any advice I would be so so appreciative. If this is not enough information to diagnose a problem, feel free to ask for more. I really would like this fixed.

    Thanks everyone!
