Hi,

Login to Skype. Go to Tools > Options > Audio Settings and adjust the level for the Mic there. Experiment with different devices from the list.
Also check Volume Control/Mixer and make sure nothing is muted or turned down low.

Hope this helps

    Also make sure the Mic is plugged into the Mic plug on the back. It's possible that you've plugged it into the onboard sound mic plug, instead of the sound card mic plug or vice versa.

I am trying to use a new Logitech USB desktop microphone with my Mac OS X version 10.4.11. It seems to be working beecause the screen icon fluctuates when I speak, but I cannot find a way to record...


please keep the microphone a bit away from ur screen... its because, powerful electro magnets will be ther in the microphone... wen u keep it very close to the screen, the waves cause the fluctuation in the screen which wil shorten the life off ur screen

I dont know if my computer has a built in mic


the dimension does not have a built in microphone, however it does have a microphone input (the blue jack in the picture below, yours won't look exactly the same but it should be blue) so you can purchase a microphone and plug it into the microphone input and be up and going.

Can't make myself be heard or seen. I can hear


If this the computer listed you will need a mic for them to hear you. The computer does not have one built in.
You will also need an external webcam as well for them to see you. You can buy webcams that include a built in mic.

Microphone not working


Hello.
1. Audio settings all versions

Skype:
Skype-->Main window…..>Tools -> Options -->Sound Devices-->audio device/USB/etc Audio Device (do NOT use windows default device)
You can also tick the ring pc speaker check box as this is a good backup to alert you even
if the main speakers are off or turned down.

Windows:
Start-->Control panel-->Sound and Audio devices
On the audio tab set the default playback device to your main soundcard (AC97/Audio-chip/add-on-adapter), etc.
Your installed audio device must be present there.
If not, reinstall audio device

2)Check if your micro (pink) and speaker (lime) jacks are really correct and fully inserted!
They sometimes stuck.
For test only you can use earphone instead of microphone for Line In.
Standard micro in Line In will NOT work.
Go to:
Start
Programs
Accessories
Entertainment or go to
Volume Control; right click on loudspeaker icon in Task Tray
Options
Microphone
Scroll down
Check "Microphone"
If the bar "Microphone" is available, the microphone is detected by Windows now go on
(If not, Windows has a problem with your microphone)
Just to check if your microphone is broken or bad, you can use your headphones instead. They really work!
Which one L or R is microphone now, I think it's L
Check "Advanced properties"

Check Micro "Advanced"
Open
Check "20db boost" or "1.MIC boost" depending on language version
Volume level can be left in any position.
Mute microphone!!!

3. Check audio now on windows base.
Start
Programs
Accessories
Entertainment
Soundrecorder

4. Once done, test with Skype Test Call echo123.
Good Luck

Please Vote.

Logitech microphone


have you checked the settings under control panel/sounds and audio devices?
open that up click the voice taband under voice recording press the volume button, check to see if the check box has a tick in it under microphone and that the volume is turned up. try the test hardware button to test your mic and adjust the levels from within the wizard.

hope this gets you headed in the right direction

Maybe a dumb question, but I have and old computer microphone ("AM-32") that hasn't been used in years -- I remember eventually getting it to work on a computer about 6 years ago. I now have a...


hi lorne;
please double check the port you plugged in, is it color coded? green are for the speakers, i think pink would be for the mic, try to reboot your computer while your mic is still attached to you pc.
