Skype Quits on Sign In

I have just downloaded and installed the latest version of Skype on my Compaq Presario 2100 laptop running WinXP SP2 with all the latest updates. As soon as Skype tries to sign in, it immediately shuts itself down and quits. Any suggestions?

    You have already signed in elsewhere?

    I think I have solved the problem by downgrading Skype to ver. 1.3x. Apparently ver. 2 is incompatible with my Conexant AC-Line audio card.
