For Skype voice conversations you should get a USB headset. Not a microphone. The quality of your conversations will be superior, you won't have to hold a mic so your hands are free to type and most importantly you will eliminate the possiblity of feedback (which could happen if your microphone gets too close to your PC's speakers). You can get an inexpensive Logitech one for around $20-$30.

Unfortunately your computer does not have a built in microphone. You can, however, buy an external microphone (around $10) and connect it to the microphone input socket (next to the audio output socket). Once you do this, you should be able to voice chat on Skype

Complete specifications for your machine is available at:

Sony vaio vgn-NR120E has no mic specially when u r on skype i can hear the caller but my voice is not heard by him...tell me the solutionWhat's your problem?


You're on a laptop and it's talking about a sound card?

If you can hear audio or the voice from the caller then you don't need a sound card.

Yes you can purchase an external mic and it just plugs into the mic port on your system. I think that might be why the caller can't hear you. All computers do not come with a built in microphone. And if you are skyping and using a web cam, all web cams don't have a built in microphone.

Im using acer aspire 4732Z. When i use skype the other person cannot hear my voice? What might be the problem? do i need a separate microphone?


Good day,

I will first want to ask that do your laptop have a built in microphone like that use for speech recognition? If yes, has your skype account been configured to use this microphone? if no, configure that in the settings tab of your skype account.
If your laptop do not have an in built microphone then get a head phone that has a microphone attached to it and configure it in your skype account.

Toshiba laptop Microphone Not working or Non-existant?


Click Start/All Programs/Accessories/Sound Recorder. Click Start Recording and talk to your computer in a normal voice. When you finish click Stop Recording. Type in a file name and click save. Open the file and play it. If it works you have a built in mike, otherwise buy yourself an external, which I recommend anyway, because the built in mikes are generally not good enough for voice recognition or VOIP.

Make sure that you have the Microphone pointed to your webcam within SKYPE. I know that with Ventrillo you need to set it up to see the device within the program. I would look for options within Skype.
