First: Check if the device is installed and working properly - My Computer-(right click)-Manage-Device Manager - be sure there is nothing wrong in "Sound, video and Game Controllers" section.
If there is something wrong, you will see it immediately, then fix it.
If in that section all is OK, then
1) go to Acer FTP site and get Realtek driver there (ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/netbook/aspire_one_150/driver/Audio_Realtek_v.5.10.0.5772.zip).
2) Uninstall running Realtek driver using Control Panel and reboot.
3) When XP after reboot will ask for driver installation, just cancel this and install Realtek driver downloaded.
4) Check with Skype your voice recording and enjoy.
All this is valid if you do not have your microphone physically broken. Tested by myself - I had the same situation.

My chrystaleye webcam wont work with skype


SKYPE VIDEO PROBLEM
To test if the Logitech QuickCam is functioning, check the USB cable; make sure it is connected properly. Then click on Start - All Program - Logitech - Logitech QuickCam and see if you can get the camera to capture your image/video. If this works then the fault is with the Skype configuration. Sometimes the WEBcam settings drop off and the WEBcam need to be selected again. Open Skype - Tools - Options - Video Settings and select the Logitech QuickCam Also check the Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save. Avoid connecting the WEBcam to an USB hub.

When I syne onto skype people can see me but cannot hear me


*lights cigarette*


First Make sure that both you and the person you are calling are using the latest version of Skype.


http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full



If your contact cannot hear you, it can be either on your side or theirs.


Please confirm that you have done the following:


If you go in the Tool menu, then Options, you will get a section called Audio settings.


There you can chose the right Input device, in your case you want the microphone of your webcam, and once it is selected try talking and you should see a "green line" showing as you speak confirming that the device is properly recording.


If the green line is short, you might want to boost the volume by moving the blue dot to the right. You can also uncheck the "adjust my volume automatically" since it can put your volume very low every time a loud noise is caught by the microphone.


If the camera microphone is not listed, installing your webcam software again should make it available after a reboot.


After That, try making a test call (Echo/Sound Test Service). If you can record your own voice and hear it played back to you, then the problem may lie with the person you are calling. If so, ask them to follow these instructions.

1. First try to check that if your mic is working fine or not. Try to use any voice recording software to record your voice, if it works then your nothing is wrong with your laptop.
2. If you are using any proxied connection, it is possible that your proxy is blocking it. it happens in college, universities.
3. Try to reinstall the OS and then reinstall all the drivers correctly and then install Skype.

I am not able to turn the inbuilt microphone on in Acer aspire 4736Z while on a videocall with my friend on skype or yahoo msgnr. i can hear her but she cant hear me at all. also theres a constant...


It will be good to test the microphone in the sound recorder to see if the driversa re supporting , if not reinstall the drivers or choose to set to a earlier restore point.
If the mic is working good it must be seen if the Skype and messenger has some conflicts therby disabling the mic.
So take chance and uninstall the messenger to try if the fault clears.If not uninstall the skype and check with the messenger.
If the mic is not working at all it can be a hardware issue , a fault of the mic.

Others can't hear me on skype


Open control panel.
Click on Sounds and Audio Devices.
Click on Voice.
Make sure the microphone is plugged in.
Click on test hardware.
If it works there, make a note of the default devices in Voice playback and Voice recording.

You will then have to make sure the same settings are in the Microphone and Speakers boxes in Skype.
In Skype click on tools, the audio settings.
