It's possible that your microphone is muted.

Goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control

If you see a slider for Microphone, make sure that it's all the way up, and ensure that "Mute" is not checked at the bottom of the slider.

If you do not see a slider for Microphone, click Options > Properties and in the windows that opens select "Recording" and make sure that there is a check box next to Microphone. You should now be able to adjust the volume of the mic, or unmute it.

You can test to see if your microphone works in Skype, by calling the Skype Test Call contact, you will be asked to record a message and repeat it back. If you hear your voice, so should your loved ones. (If you've deleted the Skype Test Call contact you can re-add it by adding "Echo123" to your contacts.

    On the properties dialog, yes Microphone should be ticked. On the main screen of volume control, no microphone should not be ticked as this will mute your microphone.

    Could you try something for me?

    Goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Sound Recorder and try to record something. If it works, we at least know that your sound card and microphone are working.

    I just looked at your laptops specs online and apparently it does not have a built-in mic. I just took your word for it from your initial post.

    You'll need to buy a microphone that plugs into the microphone jack on your computer.

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.

I have an HP G60-120us notebook pc, running windows XP. I am trying to chat to some one on skype, I can hear them, but they can't hear me. How do I set up the built in mic on my computer.


Go to control panel, look for sounds then there should be a tab that says microphone or input. Raise the volume there. I think another way to do it is by right-clicking the speaker in the taskbar.

I am recently upgrade win7 hp nx9110 audio output device not installed msg getting how to resolve


Ok this is kind of common with Windows 7. Although everyone thinks its new its really not just a fairly bug free OS. The HP models running Win7 actually are using the Vista or XP driver for audio. I just ran into that issue a few months ago when upgrading a Pavillian model.

V6105NR MICROPHONES DO NOT TRANSMIT


Does your microphone work with other applications.  If you are running windows XP, go to Start>all programs>accessories>entertainment>sound recorder.  Record your self and play it back.  If you can hear yourself, then the issue is with skype.  Make sure you go through the audio setup wizard in skype to get the best preformace out of your microphone.  If no other programs work, then you may need to reinstall the drivers for that microphone and try it again.

Microphone setup


are you sure that you microphone is working properly?

if yes then there must maybe some problems with your microphone port in your pc..

but try this though :

in the volume control menu ensure that the microphone is not set to mute

what else u can try is u can try the mic with the other port and still if it doesnt work,the other person is still not able to hear then try and do the voice chat with some one else and if the other person on the different chat will be able to hear u then definately the prob is with the other person's computer it is not with ur computer.
