Problem with Skype and microphone

  hopeofkingdom 23:09 01 Aug 09

Since connecting my Skype phone to my Vista PC I cannot use the microphone. There is no response when I do the test suggested, either with headphone mic. or without, it doesn't 'hear' me. Incoming calls come in loud and clear but I am unable to make myself heard.If it is my sound card do I have to be an expert to install it? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Firstly which version of Skype are you using? Suggest you use version 4 if not already.

Go to tools - options and under audio settings check that the correct mike is selected.

Also check that your mic isn't muted. Enter control panel and sounds.

Skype sound settings (at least in XP) are completely different to what might be expected with regards to a mike. See:
