Re: internal microphone in gateway turned off, now will...
You may need to raise the level by going back into Control Panel -> Sound. From there, click the Recording tab -> right-click Microphone and select Properties. Finally, click the Levels tab and raise the level.

I suggest you go into control panel and device manager and see if your internal mic is listed there. If it is right click on it and see if it is selected as your default mic. I believe it may be un-selected. If that doesn't work I would just use the external mic with Skype as the internal mics with most laptops aren't that good anyway.
make sure you dont have the mic muted on the sound controls through control panel. Also both of these programs have preferences and you might need to check that your internal mic is selected as the input device.
To test the microphone, click "start" button, then "Control Panel", then "Sounds and Audio Devices". On the popup window that opens, click on the "Voice" tab, then click on the button that says "Test Hardware". After several seconds this will bring up a test program that will show a noise level meter when you're speaking into the microphone. (The default device listed under voice recording should be "Realtek HD Audio Input".)
open up your volume toolbar, advanced and make sure that your mic is not muted, turned down or that your mic +20 boost is turned off. You can always uninstall sound drivers and have vista find them again on boot up, but Vista is such a new platform that your mic hardware may not be compatible. Good luck, I have never had good results with the windows mic.
1)Double click on the speaker icon in the system tray to bring up windows volume control.
2)Go to options, then properties.
3)Select adjust volume for recording.
4)Make sure microphone is ticked.
6)Select the microphone in the windows volume control.
Your microphone is now on. Just set the appropriate volume for the mic.
