Headset Okay- Toshiba Satellite A210 running basic Vista. I bought a headset w/ microphone (setting up on Skype). Problem is I cannot figure out how to get the headset to work! I have found the sound, disabled the speakers and enabled the headset- no luck. When I plug in the headset, the speakers do not stop. Can anyone help?? Thanks Don

If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphonedriver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured inSkype.
To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories -Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back.If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype.
To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options -Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.

No sound when i talk w/people on skype; do i need to buy a microphone


Hello,

Yes, you need to have a microphone or a headset.

If you are using a headset with mic on it but it's still not working, then, you need to check the sound settings in your computer. Just go to: start/pear>control panel>hardware and sound> sound > recording... A microphone icon should show up there. Make sure that it's checked. It should look like this:

If it has an X on it, just right click on it and you can find enable. Click on enable.

I hope this helps.

Thanks

I have a Satellite M35X-S114 that has a mic problem. I was using Skype with no problem and then it just stopped working. I hear through the speakers and headset but no mic. I also tried a new headset with...


Sometimes programs like Skype will lose the Mic settings and chose another input channel. Check your operating system's audio settings under something similar to "Recording" and see if microphone is checkboxed and turned up. Also, make sure it is not muted on Skype and/or the operating system.

If you have Windows XP, for example, look for the audio settings icon (little speaker) just left of clock area. Open and go to "options". Choose "properties" then "Recording". Look that your microphone is "Selected" with a checkbox and is turned up. To hear yourself during this, you will need to go back and choose "Playback" instead of "Recording" and de-select "mute" (if checked) for microphone and turn it up to see if you hear yourself talking over the speakers/headphones.

Also, check the Skype settings for microphone and that Skype has the correct sound device selected for input - being your microphone and not another device.

Also make sure that there is not a manual, physical volume adjustment for the microphone on the laptop case itself. Could even be a mute button.

My microphone won't work. I can't hear my voice.Toshiba Satellite


Check which microphone device u have set up. Try changing it around. Also try just speaking closer to the microphone and into the mic. Some mics just are not good.
