I agree with Mike, but would like to add a couple of things. I had the same problem with a Gigabyte board (new install) and found that I had to change the CMOS battery. I put in a new batter, and "voila" it worked fine after that. Also, not knowing your level of experience, make sure the front panel connections are on correctly. Generally speaking, if you look at the lettering on the plastic ends that plug into the board pins on the front panel connector, the lettering should face the edge of the board and not be facing the middle of the board. That too has caused a similar sounding problem in the past. Other than these two potential solutions, more information is definitely needed.

you most likely checked all the obvious settings, checked, volume control, within Skype it is not on mute.
also within Skype, you can also perform audio and video testing, to confirm the issue is not from your end.
If this still fails, and you can not hear the other party ... the issue may be at their end.
They will need to check their settings and skype settings.
the mother board may be the problem it has happened to me before i checked all the wiring and all the slots and made sure everything was plugged in correctly, i also took the clock battery out this resets the mother board and it can solve small problems like this one unplug it from the wall when you do this to make sure it resets everything then put it back together after about 5 min and it should work properly again
go into your Control Panel, find and double click on Sounds and Devices- click on the Voice tab, under Voice recording - change the Default device: to the device you are using. this is not a monther board problem, its software problem, as long as you are sure that the mic is working
