I just had the same prob. Thought for a while I ahd a machine fault. The solution is a bit buried but basically you have to "turn off" the line input feature of the Realtec high definition audio properties. Get to this through the device manager and sound,videoandgamecontrollers It will work. If you cant find change your question and I'll get back to you.

Try plugging in an external microphone. If it works, then your internal microphone has failed. If the external microphone also doesn't work, then try reloading the Realtek Audio Driver. There is also the possibility if you have previously used an external microphone, that the jack's connections have become unreliable such that the system thinks that an external microphone is still connected after it has been unplugged. With this situation, plugging an external microphone back in will obviously work.
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.
The fact that your internal mic works and then goes out, is more likelly a drivers problem.
I would run your device manager with all external devices disconnected and look for flags.
If you have a device problem, it will show up here.
Remove and flags and allow your operating system to reload drivers after a reboot.
If this has not fixed your problem, try to boot into safe mode and check your internal sound devices their. Sounds like a driver conflect.
Hope this has helped,
If you have a WEB camera you need to configure your video Webcam settings. Open Skype click on Tools - Options - Video Settings - select your Webcam model.
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. If you still have problems with your mic. then - To test if the microphone is working, go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and record you voice. Can you see your voice recording, the green line should vary as you speek. If you see a flat green line, then the microphone is either faulty or the wrong microphone is selected.
This is not a problem with mic. Settings in System was changed so that mic has been muted. To enable goto contol pannel and Select Sound & Devices and Select Advanced in Device Volume there you will get Master Volume Settings Menu So that uncheck the Mic option and check for Mic Setting in that.
hope this will be helpful.
Thanks & Regards
