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.

When using Skype I can hear other person fine but she can barely hear me. I have tried to adjust sound on skype but it doesn't seem to make a difference

I had the same problem and I replaced and/or used "external mic for Notebook " for this purpose and everything is ok now..
pls use new mic and make a test call to SKYPE to hear your mic voice as well..

Take care and if it succeeds please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up

Please make sure that all the drivers are correctly installed. If you are using a desktop, check if the mic is connected on the correct jack. Please reply if this has helped. Thanks.

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.
