MacBook Pro :: Can't Delete Skype Dmg File As It Says Skype Is In Use While It Is Not In Use?

Jun 14, 2010

On the right hand side of my desktop when I download a program it seems to put an icon or doc on the right hand side. Like right now I have a skype dmg file I can't delete as it says Skype is in use, then right above that is a seperate skype icon that even if I drag to dock it still stays on the right hand side (like a copy), then I downloaded open office again and it put the install icon there (like when you open and you drag your program to teh applications folder)

Software :: Tried To Use The Internet And Skype, But The Skype Didn't Work At All?

Jun 5, 2008

I have reached this website after scrawling to find a solution on the internet. I hope someone can help me with this problem.I have a 4 years old G4 ibook (OS 10.3.7), and have been using it for internet, skype and foto-storage mainly.Situtation:Yesterday I tried to use the internet (Firefox browser) and skype, but the skype didn't work at all. Since firefox was not working properly either, I did force quit and restarted the computer. I attempted this several times until I could use both applications (never had any problems before). However, Skype didn't work, and in the end, I could not quit firefox at all. At last I did force quit again, and saw white screen with apple icon at the centre when restarting. No time-spinning mark, the apple just sits there.

Troubleshooting that I have done:
I called up support center, and they told me that it's very likey that the computer is stopping at "'carnel" stage (I'm sorry but I don't know what this is). The possibility that it's got something to do with HD is 50/50, so I may have to send it to repairing service in the worst case. They told me to try using Disc Install CD1 to check/repair something wrong in my computer. So I followed the instructions and inserted the install CD and restart the computer with "c" key. The computer read the CD and Installer window showed up. As instructed in a manual, I used First Aid in Disc Utility, and tried "repairing disc". After a while it said "1 HFS has been repaired". It also said that Macintosh HD doesn't seem to have a problem", so I quit the disc utility and restarted the computer.

Against my expectation, the same white screen with apple came up on the screen and sits there with no other movements.I'm afraid of trying somethinig without further so I hope I can get the same story or ideas that someone here might have.

OS X :: IChat And Skype Use Only One Speaker On MacBook Pro?

Jan 23, 2010

when using iChat or Skype, only one speaker (R) works. I was told that it was designed this way to save battery power and bandwidth and that it was originally designed this way when most users were on dial-up isn't this called designing for the lowest common denominator?

MacBook Pro :: 13" Use The ISight With Skype

Sep 30, 2010

I've had my 13" MacBook Pro for 10 months and I'd always tried to use the iSight with Skype here in Australia but it never worked. I just put it down to bad integration as I'd read on forums that it's a common issue. I finally took the MBP into Doncaster (Melbourne, Australia) Apple Store after I'd tried everything else and they gladly replaced the whole screen within the hour. I just wanted to say that I'm suitably impressed with the service they offered. The genius ran tests and tried to get it working and accommodated my request for a quick turnaround. Is this a common issue with the iSight and is this a common turnaround time for a repair?

MacBook Pro :: Skype - No Sound In Vista

Aug 12, 2009

I just got my new 2009 13" MacBook Pro. I have installed Vista and loaded my Boot Camp drivers. I am trying to use the built in microphone for Skype. It appears in the Sound menu in the control panel as a working audio input and sound recorder works perfectly as well. However, whenever I select the microphone in Skype, there is no sound. The mic comes up as a Cirrus Logic CS4206A(AB75) device. Skype won't get any input from the mic. Does anyone know how to use Skype in Boot Camp with the new MacBook Pro hardware?

MacBook Air :: Skype Download Icon Won't Go Away?

Jun 22, 2014

Last night I downloaded Skype on my MacBook Air that I bought a few weeks ago. 

I downloaded it from, and everything seemed normal. I can now call and talk to friends and family on Skype from my laptop. However, once Skype downloaded, an icon that looks very similar to a USB icon (except blue with the Skype logo) appeared on my desktop. I tried to eject it like a normal USB, and it worked, but the next time I opened up Skype, the icon appeared again. If I try to eject the icon while I am using Skype, a thing comes up saying that it can't be ejected because Skype is in use.

MacBook Pro :: ISight Webchat Via Skype To PC And Quality

Dec 4, 2010

Today I used for the first time the webchat feature in Skype. My laptop is a MacBook Pro i5 with Skype, MacOS is 10.6.5. My parents are using a decent Asus laptop running Windows 7 and the latest version of Skype for Windows. My connection is an 8MB via WiFi (n router). Theirs is a bit slower as it's via a dongle. They said that they could see me very well, no issues whatsoever. On my Mac the webchat was of very poor quality, pixelated, constantly freezing, massive delay. It was barely usable. Is anybody aware of any known issues between Skype on a MBP and on a Windows 7?

Pity I can't do this test, but I would like to see how their end of the chat was, I would like to understand if it was really good or just my parents' inexperienced opinion (they just bough a laptop for the first time). Once thing is for sure though, their chat wasn't constantly freezing and they could see my well 'like a tv'. I couldn't. On a slightly different note, just found out that my 'mighty' $1,499 MBP has a VGA webcam. The cheapest laptop you can buy in the UK for $299 has a 1.3MP webcam. Gutted. This clearly means that the quality of my webchat will never be particularly good and that having a grainy picture is considered 'normal' if you factor in the very limited resolution of a VGA camera (Unless you watch a teeny tiny window like a stamp) independently of the connection speed.

Skype stops working after 20 minutes - the other person can hear me fine, but I cant understand a word the other person is saying (very digitalized). This doesn't happen on the PC so I'm wondering if it's an issue with the MAC. Does anyone have the same problem? Any ideas how to solve it?

MacBook Pro :: Skype's Repeatedly Quitting Unexpectedly?

Apr 29, 2012

I'm using Mac OS X 10.6.8. I was just using skype an hour ago but now it keeps quitting unexpectedly. My internet hung so I forced shut it down, restarted in Safe Mode, exited it and started it on the normal mode. I opened skype in safe mode and it was fine! but after that, when i exited safe mode, the error message that skype is quitting unexpectedly keeps showing up! ive tried everything - deleted the files in the skype folder, reinstalled skype but nothing works! I have an anti-virus installed on my mac so I've scanned skype and nothing seems to be infected really desperate now because I use Skype on a daily basis.

Jun 7, 2012

I have had a Macbook Pro 15" for about a year now, and suddenly Skype seems to be crashing my computer.  The computer has 8gb of ram with an i7 processor, so i have no idea why Skype, is suddenly crashing up my computer.  Ive been using, Free Memory, to track how much ram is available on my computer at certain times, and now, when i launch Skype, it goes down to 18mb out of 8 gb. I don't know why this is happening??
