Re: internal microphone doesn't work
Hi, my name is Lynn.. I hope my suggestions will solve your issue. You did the correct thing as far as downloading the drivers from the computer manufacturer website. But now you need to find out the specified hardware manufacturer as well and go to their site for most recent harware updates and/or os fixes. Also, I would like to know more info about your Operating System (ie: Windows XP, etc.) to be able to rule out or solve any other posibilities. Thank You.. Lynn :)

First test your microphone to see if it is working properly. Click on Start All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder and record your voice and play it back. If it does not work, then reinstall the microphone driver and test again. When the microphone works then open Skype and configure the Audio settings. For details on configuring the microphone in Skype, click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r6522317-skype_microphone_problem
You can try this, it might be the problem. The microphone is by default, muted. The Skype program "should" un-mute it, but sometimes the notebooks mic is not fully compliant. So, to manually un-mute the microphone, go into the volume control panel by double clicking the speaker icon in the system tray. If the microphone section is not displayed toward the right, you'll have to activate it in the Options|Properties menu item. Put a check mark in the box beside microphone. Remove the check mark in the mute box under microphone.
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,
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525. I used Skype ages ago and returned to it a couple of days ago. No one could hear me. I researched for 20 hours, downloading drivers, checking EVERY setting possible and NOW have got the ANSWER. The wires in the Microphone Array are fatigued. My microphone works perfectly when I tilt my lcd screen half way down. Go to Webcam Manager, Tools, Audio controls, the microphone has 2 bars which go green when you talk into it. Tilt your screen and watch the bars go up and down. Not the answer you probably wanted but as long as you skype with your screen half tilted everything is good to go
First off, if they can hear you and you can't hear them, it's not your microphone. It is more likely related to your sound card, possibly a driver update could fix your issue. Go to Toshiba's support site here's the link for the portege model listed above: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modelLanding.jsp?ProductMenu_0=Portables&ProductMenu_1=Portege&model_find=S100-S1133&ProductMenu_2=1042298&moid=1042298&rpn=PPS10U&smoid=true&ct=MH&ListType=Model&x=27&y=7, and select drivers and look for the sound card drivers with the latest/most recent date, download them and update your driver to see if that fixes your issue. Since you post that your sound works in other areas just not chat or Skype, you might also want to do a Windows update on their site and choose custom for your choice so you can review hardware and software updates to add to any critical/security updates found on your PC, and that may fix your issue also. Good luck.
