I have a Toshiba Sattellite A215-S4757. Along with Skype already installed, it came with a built-in webcam and mic (also shown on a Skype sticker on the laptop). The microphone worked perfectly for the first few months before it suddenly stopped. After following the advice of Skype and several online forums, the mic can now only pick up the sound being projected out of the laptop (e.g. iTunes Library), but it doesn't pick up any external sounds. If there's any advice that can be given it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

SKYPE MICROPHONE PROBLEM If the person cannot hear you then, either your microphonedriver not installed or not working OR the microphone is not configured inSkype. To test your microphone then click on Start - All Programs - Accessories -Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back.If this is OK then the microphone need to be configured in Skype. To configure the microphone - Open Skype - Tools - Options -Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.
While most laptops comes with a built in webcam and microphone, this particular model does not. If you don't see a web cam built in to the top of your screen, chances are you also won't find an internal microphone. You'll need to purchase additional accessories in order to use your laptop with Skype.
of course it is possible,go to official site(toshiba),select Support & Downloads then select your laptop type,O.S. and webcam driver then download ,instal and then you can test it ,then configure skype to microphone.
I have a TOSHIBA L500 with WIN7-64
I have a problem with my mic, it started making this high freqency noise (when you put a mic close to speakers), so I had to turn the mic off in the control panel. Now I cant use the built in mic because it seems that it somehow deleted the driver. Can somebody help me with this.. I need to instal the built in mic for toshiba L500
If you have a laptop it will have a built-in Mic If you have a webcam with a built in Mic you now have 2 on your computer and you are going to have to determine which one to use (make it 'default') I would recommend using the webcam mic as default. You do not say what your pc or OS is so here is the setup for Laptop x Vista Set up Audio
Laptop x webcam/mic x Vista
TEST SPEAKERS Right click on speaker icon in System Tray Select "Playback Devices" The speaker icon ( checked as working) and volume level graph should be visible Right click on the volume graph and click "Test" Left hand speakers followed by right hand should be heard
SET DEFAULT & TEST MIC Click "Recording" tab. Set required mic as default - click on mic font to highlight and click "Properties" In lower dropbox display "Use this device enable" click OK Click "Levels" tab and ramp up sliders ( adjust to suit later) Return to "Recording". Test mic by speaking and make sure volume graph displays
Configure to Skype
If you have an earlier OS than Vista you may have to access your hardware from the Control Panel
