Have you configured Skype from Tools? See: click here and click here

You certainly need to ensure that your normal audio device is the Default in Skype, whether onboard sound or a sound card.

i have had a look around but it does not seem to cover the problem of an error needs to close message as soon as connection is made.

Sorry I can't help, but have you tried the Skype forum? (find it via Google).
