Does she have a microphone plugged in? I dont think the 6400 has a built in mic.

If you're sure your mic works then open the sound mixer (click the speaker icon by the time in the lower right) and click "options" then "properties" and select recording. Click ok. Make sure "microphone" is selected.

Hope this helps!

When i skype no one can here me is there a mic

There is a mic in Skype and people can hear you if you have your mic on so the person your talking can hear you. There has also been an update on Skype really long ago and that update you can only mute yourself now. Here's a photo of a test call. Try doing that to test if you they can hear you.

Dear Sirs, i use windows vista and own this laptop but my microphone is not working on skype. i can see the video and hear the other person voice but the other person cannot hear my voice while he can see...

Hi. Try to check the settings of your skype account especially for the microphone. You may try using other microphones also just to check if the port is working or the mic that you are currently using is working also.

I have a inspiron 6400, i can hear pc-pc chat but the other side can't hear me, pl. help

Sounds like your Mic isn't working.
Try removing it in device manager and letting Windows re-install the device.

If it's not a built-in Mic and you are plugged into teh port on the side then you might want to try a different Mic.

I unplugged my headset to listen to music on youtube..when I plugged them back in, nobody can hear me talking on skype,,,I have played around for 4 hours and still I cannot be heard. HELP


Please check if the color of your connector is in exact place. If you want to used mic please insert it to color pink or red then if you want to hear sometimes using your headphone plug it the connector for audio in green. Usually if your head phone has mic then the connector has two different plug for mic and audio out.

Select your Receive and Show video options - suggest you use
Only people in my contact list
Click SAVE (your settings)
To add people to your Contact list - Click on Contacts (at the top) - then New Contact and follow the instructions.
You can also test your Skype by click on Echo / Sound Test Service.

Micro phone not working in my DELL Inspiron 6400

There is NO built in microphone with this laptop. You will need to purchase an external microphone and plug it into the mic in socket.
