Microphone problems

Can anyone help - I am unable to get the slightest sound out of any of the mikes that I've tried. I've even tried a USB one. Mute is disabled, so it can't be that. I am trying to set up Skype. They cannot hear me, and testing in Control Panel/Speech does not work. Am I missing something basic here? (I am using WXP Pro).

Have you got your mic volume control up?

Be sure your current microphone is the one selected in the "Sound Recording" section of the "Sounds and Audio Devices Properties" on the Audio Tab

you can test it is working by using "windows sound recorder"

if it works OK start up skype then verify the setting is the same then try using skype test call
