In the system preferences there should be a tab for input and, if you don't already have a USB headset or other external mic, then the internal mic should already be selected. You should be able to see in real time what the mic is receiving by talking. There is an input level bar that fluctuates. If this does not show anything, then you probably do have a problem with your mic. do this first though before checking out skype.

Here's an example

I call my friend and i cannot hear her while she is talking.


There are two obvious reasons (and a number of not-so obvious ones) for this.
1. Have you got your sound on (and adjusted properly) ? You might have your sound turned down or off on your PC or just within Skype. To test if your sound is working, try making a test call using the Skype test call facility.
2. Your friend's microphone may not be working, they may not have one or its sensitivity in Skype may be turned down or it may be 'muted'. Ask to check that her microphone is not muted. Ask her to make a test call on Skype and adjust her microphone sensitivity so that she can hear herself sensibly.

On my version of Skype the test call has appeared in 'contacts' but now it is accessible from the menu at the top left of the window from the call > audio settings menu/page. You can change your volume, microphone and speaker sensitivity settings on that page. You may have a different version of Skype of course.

I cant see an icon for an internal mic


I'm not sure which operating system you are running and I'm not sure if the problem is in skype or in windows.

So try this. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Sound Recorder and you can test the microphone to see if it is installed and the volume works. if it works here, then your problem is within the skype software. Open skype and look for how to set the microphone. it might be under something like settings. You can always click the help on the skype window and type in Microphone.

If it does not work, then the microphone is not set up as a recording device in your audio properties or it might be muted. You can click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the audio and volume properties. You want to make sure the microphone is set as a recording device and that it is not muted. Don't be afraid to explore the tabs an buttons if you change something and you are not sure you can always click Cancel.

You can also get to the Audio Sound properties by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound.

I understand that you are not able to us the microphone with Skype. As per the information provided in User Guide for the model it seems that the model has an Internal microphones .

Try configuring the internet microphone to use with Skype.
Open Skype - Tools - options- Audio settings- Set the input device as internal microphone and check the operation.

When on skype the person i am calling cannot hear me but i can hear them


It sounds like your microphone settings may be incorrect. Make sure if your computer has an internal microphone that the settings are set to use the correct device. You can check in the Skype preferences.

If you have an external microphone (one you must plug in to the computer) try testing it on another computer to make sure it has not malfunctioned.

On your Skype menu go to "Tools" at the top of your menu.
Select "Options" and then select "Audio Settings".
There is a drop down menu for "Microphone".
Try selecting each option until you see the "Volume Bar" start indicating that your mic is working.

Microphone does not work


Yes, sometimes Skype messes with your hardware settings and sets it up to what "skype thinks works best", if you have System Restore turned on, try going back to the time before you installed that version of Skype.

Also, look in your Device Manager settings for anything screwy.
