Microphone just stopps working out of the blue

Both my mom and I have a HP Pavilion dv 1000 notebook computer. We have been using them to make skype calls and after several weeks, both microphones just stopped working, mid coversation. I tried an external microphone but it didn't pick up sound. The only sound the person on the other end of the line could here, was when I pulled my microphone jack in and out of the port. It would make a clicking noise on the other end. Do you know what may have caused these mics to suddenly die and how do we fix them or get an external mic to work?

Re: Microphone just stopps working out of the blue

Try un-installing Skype and see if the mics work after that...Maybe Skype is causing the issue. If both computer's mics stopped at nearly the same time it's gotta be a software issue....or both computers got a virus. The odds of the microphone hardware going out at nearly the same time has to be very low...but not impossible.

Re: Microphone just stopps working out of the blue

Hey! I have the same problem with my Toshiba P105. I use Skype and the microphone stopped working suddently. It happens to be that it does not work with Linux either...!!

I thought it was a physical problem... probably that my daughter pulled it up improperly. But now I see that it might not be what caused the problem.. Does anybody has an idea about what is going on?

I understand that you are not able to us the microphone with Skype. As per the information provided in User Guide for the model it seems that the model has an Internal microphones .

Try configuring the internet microphone to use with Skype.
Open Skype - Tools - options- Audio settings- Set the input device as internal microphone and check the operation.
