Sony vaio vgn-NR120E has no mic specially when u r on skype i can hear the caller but my voice is not heard by him...tell me the solutionWhat's your problem?

You're on a laptop and it's talking about a sound card?

If you can hear audio or the voice from the caller then you don't need a sound card.

Yes you can purchase an external mic and it just plugs into the mic port on your system. I think that might be why the caller can't hear you. All computers do not come with a built in microphone. And if you are skyping and using a web cam, all web cams don't have a built in microphone.

With Skype for it to work properly & every time you really should get a USB Headset. or Mic, That is Skype capable. A small outlay will get a real great result. Because even if you do get your Mic to work, it is never work as good and often echo's a lot,

I have an hp g60-230us. installing skype, both parties see visual. I hear them they can,t hear me, Ihave mic volume full high, and have checked unmute.

Have your mic turned on.

Go to your toolbar, double click on your audio volume. Then click on mixer (if your on vista), Turn on skype audio to max.

Go into Skype:
Tools > Options > Audio Settings
Choose where the mic and audio are coming from, if your using a headset choose front panel or where ever your panel is. Otherwise its set on default.

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.

Mirophone is not working on laptop


Firs of all I like to remind you the model that you have doesn't come with integrated microphone. However It will work any standard PC microphone that you can obtain around few dollars or less from IT stores. All you need to plug the microphone to the right side second socket socket as illustrated below


If issue persist please post further I will provide assistance accordingly

Good Luck

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!
