Skype and Vista

I have always enjoyed using Skype and when i upgraded to Windows Vista i thought setting up Skype would be a doodle, how wrong i was!

When making a test call i can hear the recorded voice telling me what to do but when i talk into the micrphone.... nothing?

I use the following settings:

1) Microphone (volume)Windows default device

2) Speaker (volume) Windows default device

3) Ringing

Or do i have to go into the control panel -> Hardware and Sound and alter something there.

Any help or advice would be really appreciated.
Big thanks

Usually the microphone setting (in Skype Tools options) will have a drop down menu and if say your mic is a logitech then choose that rather than the default for windows.

I had exactly the same problem. Do you have a Dell PC or laptop? After much trouble shooting and two new headsets later I found out from Dell technical support that a sound driver they had pre-installed on my new Dell Vista-laptop was incompatible with Vista! They directed me to their website to install an updated sound driver version called R147073.
