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.

I have Toshiba Satellite proA200- EZ2204X lapotp. I have installed skype and Action VoIP on my laptop. But the far end people are not able to hear me weather I use inbuilt or External Microphone. Plz


You have to make sure there are drivers installed for the microphone device you want to use. You can check that in Control Panel, Sound, Recording tab. If you have a microphone installed all the settings you can set for it will be there.
Also, make sure that whatever program you are using is set to use the recording device you want. This is normally set to 'system default', but can also be accompanied by a drop-down list of all recording devices on the system.
You can test all installed recording devices from the Control Panel, Sound, Recording tab to ensure that they do work correctly. If they do work there, but not in the program you are using, then the problem is in the program settings.

First test your microphone to see if it is working properly. Click on Start All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder and record your voice and play it back.
If it does not work, then reinstall the microphone driver and test again. When the microphone works then open Skype and configure the Audio settings.

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.

Others can't hear me on skype


Open control panel.
Click on Sounds and Audio Devices.
Click on Voice.
Make sure the microphone is plugged in.
Click on test hardware.
If it works there, make a note of the default devices in Voice playback and Voice recording.

You will then have to make sure the same settings are in the Microphone and Speakers boxes in Skype.
In Skype click on tools, the audio settings.
