Question about HP Compaq nx9030 Notebook
Firstly, what version of Ubuntu and Skype are you using? Also what machine.
There are three areas where the issue could be - within Skype's settings, withing Ubuntu's settings or with the microphone/soundcard.
I'll cover some quick attempts at solving, assuming it's the first two.
OK, first make sure Ubuntu's settings are correct. If you can access the sound settings (generally there is a Speaker icon in the top right). Right click, 'open volume control'. Often you need the 'boost' level as well as the usual microphone - if you have 'Front Mic', sometimes you need 'Front Mic Boost too', likewise if you have 'Microphone', you might need 'Microphone Boost'. In the Volume Control, click preference to add the 'boost' level.
If that didn't work it might be your Skype settings. In Skype options, 'sound devices' try changing the 'sound in'.
If those didn't work it might be hardware (or another trickier software issue) - try testing your microphone on something else.
