Are your speakers plugged in? Is your volume turned on? Try restarting your computer. Try wearing headphones. Make sure the other user has microphones plugged in and they are not muted. If you are wearing headphones, set it to the default device. If you not using headphones, set the system speakers to the default device. If you do not know how to this, google is your friend. Hope this helps.
Start up Skype and click Options under the Tools tab. Click on Video settings. Skype should then start the built-in webcam's video and you should see yourself in the window. Be sure that the radio button is on to Show that I have video to... people in my Contact list only. If instead, the radio button is on for no one, then no one will see that you have any video capability. If you have made any changes, be sure to click the Save button at the bottom right of the Skype options window. Finally, be sure that your partner is in your Skype's Contact List.
Hi. Try to check the settings of your skype account especially for the microphone. You may try using other microphones also just to check if the port is working or the mic that you are currently using is working also.
The "Invalid WIN 32 application error" is coming as the Skype setup you are installing is an older version and is incompatible with your Windows 64bit system. To install skype you'll need to install the newer versiion of Skype. You can download the newer version of Skype from this link---
Computer to computer calls are made by adding the contacts from your email lists or by adding an email name and asking Skype to locate them. If the user has Skype, you can call their PC. The other user must have Skype. You can ask Skype to search your address book for Skype users to make this process go smoother.
If you are trying to make a PC to telephone call, you have to add money to your account. This is called buying credit. Land calls are 2.1 cents per minute. PC to PC calls are free. You can dial any number using your keypad.
You must have a microphone and speakers to make a call to a land phone or other PC. If you have a camera on your PC, you can make video calls from PC to PC. If the other person has a camera, you can see each other. The button that says make calls is clicked and you follow the instructions on the screen. The red button is to hang up the call.
No, there is no built-in microphone on your machine, you have to buy one separately. NB! It requires a combined headphone/microphone jack. The regular jacks work for
the headphones, however the microphones will not work. See here
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.
