My microphone stopped working

I have Toshiba A 200 1 n3 laptop. i used to talk with my clients and friends through skype. One fine day My head set stopped working. Even inbuilt front mic sends low voice and lot of noise. I checked the settings of the Mic and everything is normal. i tried to repair the driver (realtec audio ) and it still doesnt help. i even updated the driver but the problem remains.
there is no problem with speakers.
Someone suggested to format the PC which I dont want to do as i am not sure it would help.
Any solutions??? How can I confirm whether it is software..driver problem or windows or hardware problem ???

Try use a headset and see if it works or not, if yes which is most likely, then try and reboot your lap top, you need to switch off the laptop, and make sure to to take off the battery just for 1 or 2 seconds and then try again, hopefuly it will work if not means the wire of your speakers or the speaker itself is difinetely messed up
hope it was helpful and good luck with it

Try this.
Check to see if the mic boost is on that will caus some issues.
Another thing check the headphones where the mic is located take
See if there is any obstructions you can take a vacum to it sometimes things fall in and it will block everything.
You don't need to format that's a little extreme.
Another thing you can try is check to see if you have a mic kicking around somewhere borrow one or whatever and plug it in and see if that works if so then it must be the headphones.
Sometimes the wires can break inside the casing that the wires are in and it's barely making a connection and it's just grounding out and that's why you have the problem.

Why can my friends not hear me talking to them on Skype?


On a Mac mini made in 2010 or later, you'll need to use an external microphone to communicate as they're not built in. Plugging in a pair of Apple EarPods or headphones into the headphone jack should work just fine.

USB microphones will also do the trick (but you'll need to adjust some audio settings in Skype).

Hope this helps!

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.

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.

Sounds like the settings in the skype are wrong, you need to go into the tools - settings or properties. test the video there make sure you see yourself there, if you don't see yourself in the skype video settings page then its not working, also go to the sound settings, make sure the green bar moves when you speak, if it does not move the settings are wrong, you need to select the right microphone from the available on ths list there on the audio settings page in skype.

It sounds like a driver or hardware incompatability issue. Go to the Toshiba web site and see if they have updated Windows 7 drivers or other support for your system first.

Second, you may be able to get the mic to work using the Windows 7 compatability mode which mimics Windows XP.

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.

The person I am calling /trying to talk to can not hear me


You need to configure your microphone settings.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
I don't know the audio/microphone setting for Phone Serve.
