I recently had to get the motherboard replaced and now when using skype, no one can hear me. I can hear them just fine. I am able to hear my music when using itunes or playing a CD. I don't know how to fix it!

In your sounds icon in the control panel, check to see what the computer thinks you are using for sound recording. For instance, the microphone should be listed if you are using one. If you have a headset, it should be listed instead of a stand-alone microphone. If you are using a mic, it should be plugged into the pink jack on the sound card (or motherboard).
Echo will ask for you to speak and then your words will be echoed back. If you don't hear your voice you need to make sure Skype is using the right microphone input. If you are using a desktop PC with a USB camera, you may want to make sure you have the input settings set to the camera as they default to the on-board sound card.
Likewise, if you have some sort of device that could have diverted the mic input away from the microphone you need to check that too.
Assuming you are using Windows 7
<Start>, <Cotrol Panel>, <Ease of Access>, <Speech Recognition>, <Set up Microphone> Follow prompts and instructions. Once your Microphone is set up, your Skype will work.
Please check if the color of your connector is in exact place. If you want to used mic please insert it to color pink or red then if you want to hear sometimes using your headphone plug it the connector for audio in green. Usually if your head phone has mic then the connector has two different plug for mic and audio out.
You need to check if the mic/s is working?
Are you certain the Logitech webcam has a built-in mic?
To check if the mic works go to Start - All programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and test record your voice and play back to check, also try it with the laptop's built-in mic (if it has one) and the Logitech mic.
If both mics work then you have a choice of which one you can use in Skype, most likely the best one would be the Logitech one.
You need to configure your audio settings in Skype. When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Select Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.
