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?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
