Using Skype - Intneral mic no longer works

Hey everyone - I am stumped and I know it's got to be something very easy to fix. I have been using Skype video for quite some time on my Compaq Presario V2000 PC and it worked great without the use of an extra mic (I could talk right though my laptop). All of a sudden it no longer works unless I plug in my internet headphones. This is okay, but is kind of annoying considering I know things worked before.

I'm wondering if there are any regular Skype users out there and if so, why can't I use the internal mic anymore?

Re: Using Skype - Intneral mic no longer works

Its due to your internal laptop MIC's failure! Plz check at any Compaq Service station! Becoz its internal hardware error! Becoz there r no seperate drivers for MIC! If your speakers are working great then MIC should work or else try to get repaired it!

How do i get my mic to work on my Samsung 350V 15.6 Inch 6GB 500GB Laptop

Go to control panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Recording.

If you can see your microphone in the list Right-Click and select "Make default device"

Once you've done this Type "Sound recorder" and see if you can record your voice using it now. If you can and the Mic still doesn't work with skype, it is a skype issue; so have a look through there.

My Mic in Dell Precision m90 stopped working after i downloaded Skype? Any suggestions on how to get it working again?

Have you checked the sound settings in Skype? Usually skype lets you to set your sound equipment individually rather than using the windows general settings.

Especially if you have onboard mic. Try the call settings sound options in skype and check to see if it is working.

Microphone not working when using skype

You just have to enable it in volume control ..(just engage the sound settings in control panel and you will find the point where you have to enable the mic and its volume ..or double click on the icon for volume in the tray system on task bar ...and in the volume control tab options and in there select the mic or the pink rear entry ..and enable it ..)
Another thing to do open skype ..and look in the settings or preferences..and make a call set-up ..or something like that ...basically you run a check for devices ...Im not sure how its called..I know its called like that in yahoo ..but on skype may be called check devices ..or check sound..and video ..and during that it will check them one by one ..and also enable if needed..

My Skype mic is not working. The receiver can hear me but I cannot hear them. Please assist.

This problem maybe from his/her side, or it's also possible from you speaker settings, if you are sure that there's no mic problem from your friend, follow the instructions below; (this is to be done on your skype settings)
Sign in to your skype account > Options > click Audio Settings on the left pane > Move the Speaker slider towards the right hand side (High) > Click Test (the green play button), if you can hear the "test sound" save the settings and try calling your friend again.
(This is to be done on your friends skype settings) Let him/her log in to his/her account > Options > Audio Settings > Mic volume (slide the volume to the extreme right) > save and try again. You can also do the settings while you are on the call with him/her so that you can see/know the changes instantly. If there's no problem with the mic or speaker, this will definitely fix it.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

It seems like your mic doesn't work. Are you using headphones with microphone?
Go to sound properties and check if microphone is enabled.

Sound Input problems

What you have to do is go to your speaker volume icon in the taskbar, right click and go to open volume control and click mute microphone. If mic does not show click Advanced. This dissables the onboard mic but allows the use of your external microphone, rectifying the tinny sound.
