Everytime i get onto skype the person i call cant hear me but i can hear them. The video is fine.

Plug your mic in to the mic socket on the computer & switch it on, go to the speaker icon down near your clock(bottom right) right click on it & open the mixer turn the fader up on the mic or select the mic as your default record device,if you need more help then i will need to know what operating system your using i.e windows XP / VISTA / 7 etc.....
or find the sound & vidio setup option in skype.

Microphone setup

It's possible that your microphone is muted.

Goto Start > All Programs > Accessories > Entertainment > Volume Control

If you see a slider for Microphone, make sure that it's all the way up, and ensure that "Mute" is not checked at the bottom of the slider.

If you do not see a slider for Microphone, click Options > Properties and in the windows that opens select "Recording" and make sure that there is a check box next to Microphone. You should now be able to adjust the volume of the mic, or unmute it.

You can test to see if your microphone works in Skype, by calling the Skype Test Call contact, you will be asked to record a message and repeat it back. If you hear your voice, so should your loved ones. (If you've deleted the Skype Test Call contact you can re-add it by adding "Echo123" to your contacts.

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!
