    Everytime I start skype while in windows, the computer crashes and I get the blue screen... I think it has to do with the sound drivers, because when I'm using msn messenger also in windows suddenly the microphone mutes itself..
    I tryed updating the realtek drivers with no help, updated skype, no help, I uninstalled the realtek drivers and the laptop did not crash anymore but I had no sound, any advice like for example how to get the microsoft drivers to work on the laptop without using realtek??
    For whatever reason with the microsoft drivers,I think the sound is trying to come out of the digital outlet, I can see the ligth inside the jack, but nothing comes out of the laptop's speakers...
    By the way, the vista version is Home basic.
    Thanks

    The vista version is better... same with msn messenger, plus I want the laptop to work as intended, not getting dump crashes every time I start an application...

    Right... then why did you buy a MacBook? :rolleyes:

    Also, what crashes are you talking about when starting an application?

    If you want it to work as intended then USE the Mac version! An Apple computer has no designation to play nice with a foreign OS.

    I'd like to help but I haven't a clue what the problem is.
