Hi the microphone on the webcam probably isn't working or its turned off or volume is muted / low. I would suggest you get a 2-5 usd cheap mic from a local store and plug it into your sound card mic plug. Problem solved.

I am trying to get my parents Skyped up! They have an old'ish Emachine m5 118 g1. I skyped them and visually eveything works great both ends. Audio wise - They can hear me, but I can't hear them. Any...


My first thought would be to make sure the headset is working with another application. Go to Start-All Programs-Accessories-Entertainment-Sound Recorder and see if you can record anything.
Then check the Skype Audio settings:
- Is the correct microphone chosen?
- Turn off "Automatically adjust microphone settings" - that is most likely the culprit if the hardware is ok.
- call "echo123" from Skpye and do a test recording.

Also - I assume your headset is working.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

How do i get the mic to work on my laptop. I can hear people but they cannot hear me when i use the skype programme.


Hi Grace,
IN Skype I would recommend you do a "test" call..(You can find how to make a test call under: Tools -> Options -> Audio settings) You'll see a link at the bottom that says: "Make a test call". In the same "Audio settings" page of Skype you'll see your audio devices. Make sure you have the right microphone selected. If it's properly connected and selected, when you are in this page and you talk into you mic, the little horizontal bar under the Mic selection should light up each time you make a noise.
Hope this helps. Ed PS: bare in mind that laptops such as the Toshiba Satellite A105 doesn't have a built in mic and you need to buy one separately and plug it in into the mic jack.

Hooking up a microphone to a computer


Any mic is fine. You will have to enable it in the sound mixer though.

Goto..
Start - Control Panel - Sound
Select Recording and then select Microphone.
Select Configure at the bottom of that window.
The next window will open and you will see Set Up A Microphone.

It will walk you through setting it up and making sure it is active.
