I cant see an icon for an internal mic


I'm not sure which operating system you are running and I'm not sure if the problem is in skype or in windows.

So try this. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/Entertainment/Sound Recorder and you can test the microphone to see if it is installed and the volume works. if it works here, then your problem is within the skype software. Open skype and look for how to set the microphone. it might be under something like settings. You can always click the help on the skype window and type in Microphone.

If it does not work, then the microphone is not set up as a recording device in your audio properties or it might be muted. You can click the megaphone at the bottom right near the time and adjust the audio and volume properties. You want to make sure the microphone is set as a recording device and that it is not muted. Don't be afraid to explore the tabs an buttons if you change something and you are not sure you can always click Cancel.

You can also get to the Audio Sound properties by clicking Start/Control Panel and look for Audio or Sound.

We have purchased a new acer laptop and are trying to use Skype. The other person cannot hear us, I think it is the microphone but cannot workout why it won't work


First check the volume mixer by the clock on your computer and make sure it is turned on. Also check the volume setup in Skype.

Your laptop may have a mute button somewhere close to (but not on) the keyboard. Make sure that is is not muted.

I downloaded skype on my HP Pavilion to talk to my daughter at college. We can see each other & I can hear her, but she can't hear me. I don't know how to get my internal microphones to work. Please...


You can try this, it might be the problem. The microphone is by default, muted. The Skype program "should" un-mute it, but sometimes the notebooks mic is not fully compliant. So, to manually un-mute the microphone, go into the volume control panel by double clicking the speaker icon in the system tray. If the microphone section is not displayed toward the right, you'll have to activate it in the Options|Properties menu item. Put a check mark in the box beside microphone. Remove the check mark in the mute box under microphone.

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.

Skype Mute


  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. In the Open box, type sndvol32.exe, and then click OK.
  3. Click Properties on the Options menu.
  4. In the Adjust volume for box, click Recording.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Microphone box, verify that the Select check box is selected.
All the properties listed on the Playback section of the Volume control are independet of the recording settings. So you could record through the microphone by selecting it on the recording section, and mute it on the playback section. Then, you could record sound, but wouldn't hear it through the speakers while you are recording.
