    Thanks, but that didn't solve my problem. Mic will not unmute ever since I downloaded the latest Skype version 5.1.112

Hi
If before you coud mute you mic it mean tha something had happen with a new version of skype, uninstall skype and install an earlier version.
If its ok now , just wait for a new version of skype, probably it will be fixed.

How do i unmute my microphone on my laptop. i went i the volume control but it does not have a microphone line on it


Depends on what Operating System you have; Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 (or 8.1). Also, what HP laptop do you have? does it have a built-in microphone?

Failure to unmute


You pushed the button firmly on the front of the mic and it stays yellow and no sound? Did you try unmuting it in the computer settings? Maybe the hardware button is broken but you can still unmute it in software?

Desktop, accer computer, can't unmute microphone? How do you unmute the microphone?


Hi queen17186...
Go to the bottom right hand side of your computer screen, look for the speaker icon, double click the speaker icon, a window will open and show you the volume control, make sure none of those are checked "mute".
Then go to the top of that window left hand side and click on "options"then click "properties" scroll down and make sure "microphone" is not checked.
This should clear your microphone problem.

On the desktop screen, go to the bottom right hand side where you will see several icons along with the time. Look for an icon that represents a speaker. Or simply hover the icons and locate an con that reads conexant audio manager or something of the sort. Once you open the manager, you have the several options. click on microphone. Here you can adjust your microphone volume as well as mute/unmute your microphone.

How do I unmute my microphone on skype?


Solution for Skype 5.0:
In the upper right of the window during a Skype call, there should be an icon of a microphone with a slash through it. When it is highlighted in red, this means that your microphone is muted. Make sure the icon is white to be unmuted (pictures below).

Another problem could be which microphone you have selected in your Preferences. Go to Skype->Preferences... and click on the Audio/Video tab. There should be a drop down menu labeled "Microphone:"; make sure the correct microphone is chosen.
