DX Error 0x8876017C. I do not know what to do?

Hi Judith Lauren,
Most of the time this caused by problems with Direct3D acceleration.
You can try this
Click “Start” and type “ %appdata%skype”. Enter and delete 'shared.xml.
again “Start”> Run> "dxdiag.exe"
Disable "Direct3D Acceleration" from there. After disable Reinstall your Graphics Adapter Driver
Some time you can’t disable 3d acceleration. But you can change the option how 3D acceleration is used by different applications. This will depend on your graphic driver. Open graphic card control panel and find the option to change the 3D setting. If there is option like “Let the 3D application decide” or similar, select this option.
