When you are installing the skype software, there comes a time when skype will offer you the option to test your hardware. Here you will try out the speakers and mic, and skype will tell you if they are in skype accepted order.
My friend actually installed it not too long ago, and after the install, I saw that skype gave him the option to make a test call right on the program interface window. We used it, and it made a call to a skype computer voice which advised us that if we could hear her talking, then our speakers are fine, and to now go ahead and speak into our mic, if the mic is working we will be able to hear what we just said into it.
That was a great little way to make sure our speakers and mic were in fact working, and they were.
Try that out on your pc and your friend's pc to test components individually. If you are unable to find the test call option, or the option to test components, you can uninstall skype and reinstall the latest version, which may not be a bad idea to preclude any other weird problems which may be at fault.
Hope that helps.

I have one Lenovo ThinkPad SL400 Notebook os win xp , mic problem 'while Talking in skype oTher person cannoT hear me. please help


In Skype's preferences, it allows you to configure your microphone(s). I would check here to make sure it's working properly from within Skype. It's possible that you just have it muted. If it doesn't show up here, fire up Device Manager and look for the microphone there. If everything looks good in both places, it's probably a network issue, maybe you should try something other than Skype?

When using Skype I can hear other person fine but she can barely hear me. I have tried to adjust sound on skype but it doesn't seem to make a difference


Hi,
I had the same problem and I replaced and/or used "external mic for Notebook " for this purpose and everything is ok now..
pls use new mic and make a test call to SKYPE to hear your mic voice as well..

While using Skype, the person I am talking to can't hear me. It says I need to install a soundcard. What is the solution?


If the person cannot hear you then, either your mic driver not installed or not working OR the mic is not configured in Skype.
To test your mic go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back. If this is OK then the mic need to be configured in Skype.
Normal 0 To configure the mic - Open Skype - Tools - Options - Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.

I'm on Skype, and the person I'm talking to cannot hear me. They can hear feedback sounds from their computer and their voice, but can't hear me talk. This a Toshiba with a built in video camera and...


The problem seems to be with your friend's setup, and possibly yours. Try adjusting mic levels and volume levels to where they don't interfere with each other. Ex.--you talk , they hear you at a volume that is too loud and it gets into their mic, creating a loop....feedback. You do the same too. Trial and error. Hope this is helpful.

I have a Satellite M35X-S114 that has a mic problem. I was using Skype with no problem and then it just stopped working. I hear through the speakers and headset but no mic. I also tried a new headset with...


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.

I can hear the other party but I can't hear them. it says that my mic is mute....how do I undo this?


You mean "I can hear the other party but they cant hear me"

Skype probably didnt change your microphone.

Go to Skype Tools>Options>General>Audio Settings and on the Microphone dropdown menu, make sure your headset is selected. If it's installed correctly and you talk into it, you should see the volume bar start moving. Click save and start talking!

This is assuming you've already gone into sound proporties in windows and made your headset the default microphone and checked the volume settings on it.
