Skype needs to be configured for people to see you.
Open Skype, Click on Tools tab, then Options, then Video Settings.
Select the WEB camera from the pull down list and click on your WEB cam.
Tick Enable Skype video
Tick Start my video automatically when I am in a call

In Automatically receive video from - select anyone or only people in my Contact List.

In Show that I have Video to - select People in my Contact List

Then Click on Save.

In the Audio Settings - make sure you have selected the correct mic. and the other settings, don't forget to save.

Close Skype - now when you receive a call or when you call someone they should noe see you.

Have fun.

My internal microphone isn't working, it says that it there and nothing wrong, but when you speak it doesnt pick up any sound


Try using different applications that use the microphones like skype or other chat software. You haven't mentioned which OS you are using. Depending on which one, you'd have settings that enables you to choose between multiple microphones like the mic of your headset and the internal mic.

If these do not work, your mic must have become defective and might need to be serviced or repaired.

Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.

Windows Vista:

1) Right Click the Volume Icon at the bottom right corner of your screen [The Task bar]. 2) Click [Playback Devices]. 3) Right Click the [Speakers] Icon and click Properties. 4) Click the [Levels] Tab; and there you will see the Microphone Volume slider (The one at the very bottom of the "HD Audio output" and "PC Beep" sliders where you can un-mute the mic playback.


Windows 7:
1) Click on Start (the Windows icon) and type sound. 2) Click on Sound under Control Panel. 3) Click on Recording tab. Select Microphone and click on Properties. 4) Click on Levels tab.
