Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N250E/B Notebook

1 Answer

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-FZ220E. The person I talk to on Skype can not hear me and Skype gives me a message that my microphone is silent. I go to Control Panel/ Audio and look at "Recording Devices" and there are two. The top one says "currently unavailable" and the bottom one says "working." How can I fix?

The unavailable device could be the mic jack for the external mic. Try going into the skype options menu and select the mic audio there. It will also test it at the same time. Good Luck

Sony vaio vgn-NR120E has no mic specially when u r on skype i can hear the caller but my voice is not heard by him...tell me the solutionWhat's your problem?


You're on a laptop and it's talking about a sound card?

If you can hear audio or the voice from the caller then you don't need a sound card.

Yes you can purchase an external mic and it just plugs into the mic port on your system. I think that might be why the caller can't hear you. All computers do not come with a built in microphone. And if you are skyping and using a web cam, all web cams don't have a built in microphone.

My microphone records the sounds on my computer and plays them directly back through the speakers. How can I eliminate the microphone playback and have someone else hear me on something such as skype?


double click on the volume on the taskbar (System Tray - Next to clock) and Controls for Playback will open. If you can't see Microphone Volume here, click Options- Properties - and in Playback Volume list - Select Microphone by ticking against it and press OK. You will see the Microphone Volume on screen. Just tick inside the mute box of Microphone. Now the audio from Microphone will not play but you can still record it.

Your drivers might be incorrect. I have rechecked them again. If they don't work properly, you must check with it's driver properties. If you think it's still not working properly then try VAIO Recovery Center or visit VAIO Help Desk.
