It Says that there is a built in mic but the people i chat with can't hear me. i don't think it's properly set-up. how do i set it up for skype and ym?

Make sure you have correctly installed the drivers for the microphone.
Running Skype, navigate to Skype-->Preferences--->Audio/Video from here you will able to select the device of your choice by changing the mic
Running Yahoo Messenger, navigate to YM-->Preferences-->Voice & Calls from here you will able to select the input device by choosing your mic These steps reference Mac, but PC should be similar.

My laptop is compaq presario cq40. my microphone is not working but i can hear the voice of the person on the other side

Firstly please check that you have pugged the microphone into the correct (red) socket.
If that is correct the problem is likely to be in the audio settings. You don't specify which operating system you are using. My answer is for Microsoft Windows XP but Vista and Windows7 will be broadly similar.
  1. Click 'start' or go to 'my computer'
  2. click on 'control panel'
  3. click 'sounds and audio devices'
  4. click 'advanced' button in the 'device volume' box. This should open a long window of audio volume controls.
  5. On the tool bar click 'options'
  6. click 'properties'
  7. There is a drop down menu with the label 'Mixer Device' - click the down arrow at the right hand end of this menu. If there is more than one device listed select 'wave device' from the list.
  8. Further down the properties window there are 2 options 'Playback' and 'Recording'. Click on 'Playback'and then look at the list of devices in the box labeled 'show the following volume controls'
  9. Make sure that there is a tick (check-mark) against microphone.
  10. click ok
  11. Now look at the devices listed in the long window of 'volume controls' make sure that there is NOT a tick (check-mark) in the 'mute' box against microphone and that the volume slider is up at or near the top of the scale.
  12. Make sure that the 'mute all' box (far left) is not checked
  13. click on the 'options' tab on the tool bar once more
  14. Click on 'Recording' and repeat steps 9 to 12
Your microphone should now be working but I assume, from your question. that you are trying to use Voice over Internet Protocol / Skype / Messenger or other chat program. If so you will now need to go into the appropriate program and test the audio properties. Exactly how you do this will vary with each different program but most have a fairly simple test wizard. With Skype the easiest way is to select the test call button.

The devise does not hear my voice what should i do?

The first step is to go into your volume control panel and check to be sure that the microphone fader is not muted and is turned up. Also, what application are you attempting to talk to someone with -- telphone, IM chat, game chat?
