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?

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!

Headphones with mic model # na

Most headsets do not come with a volume control interface but your mic can be adjusted by going to Sound and audio devices via the control panel of your start menu. The volume can be accessed through the audio tab. Also, depending on the program you are using i.e. Skype, Team Speak or other, your volume settings can also be adjusted within that program as well. Hope this helps.

System freeze

Hey Alex, it will be driving you nuts I expect. I have had a similarly annoying situation with thi set-up and Skype. I used it to record interviews, and using the mic channel allowed me to take the sound from the pc right into the conversation giving me a very good recording that could go right into the programme with the effects etc. A couple of days ago, after a skype update, it was gone. I am working on this as I write to you and if I can get the device to start I will let you know. I think it is something to do with what they call the 'null driver' which is really already there with windows. These things fiddle right at the kidney, or perhaps the large bowel of windows. Good luck, and please let me know if you get anywhere.

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.
