Mic isn't working in Skype

I need my mic for communicating in skype but somehow Skype tells me not being able to recognize my voice. I checked everything (Control Panel / sounds and audio devices / voice & audio) but can't find the problem. It shows me Default device "C-Media CM6501 Like Sound Devic" but when i press on test hardware, no voice is recognized. So what's the problem? Do i need a new sound card or does logitec usb desktop mic fix the problem?

for any help, thanks in advance!
cheers

    The sound is function! And the yellow ! is not there, so I guess this is an audio chip problem. I bought this board here in India so it must be from China. I think i will go for the PCI sound card solution as i hate to send the motherboard to the above mentioned address. It will definitely take more than 10 working days!
    Just one more question:
    How to turn off the integrated audio in the BIOS?

    Thanks a lot,

Your logitech will not fix your C-Media CM6501driver.

det60,
Does your sound function? Can you hear sound through speakers or headset?

You did the right thing by testing the mic in control panel, audio device. Lets look at one other place.
Open control panel than open system. Click the hardware tab & than click device manager button. Scroll down to Sound, video and game controller. Click the + sign. Do you see a yellow ! point? If you do see the yellow ! point than you need to reinstall your sound driver software. Or better yet download the latest audio driver for your board from Asus web site listed at the link posted here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-E%20SLI&SLanguage=en-us
CMedia beta driver. Version: V5.12.8.1802

If there was no yellow ! point than your audio chip is defective.
Your audio & mic are intergrated into the board. The audio chip controlls both audio & mic. This is a very common break down for Asus boards, (made in China).

Your board was made in 2006 & it's warranted for three years.
You have two choices.
1. You can buy a PCI sound card & install that into your system.
You'll have to turn off the intergrated audio in the bios as well.

2. You will have to call Asus & talk with the tech dept.
812-282-2787 IL EST
A tech will ask you for the serial no# located on a white sticker on your pink printer port Lpt-1. The tech will have you re-run the test you preformed (setting up the mic). Than they will issue you a case no#.
Than you'll have to call CA, RMA dept. 510-739-3777
You give the RMA dept your case no#. They email you instructions. You pay to ship your board to Asus tech IL.
Than around 10 working days they'll ship (free) it back to you (replaced with another board), but working.
Same model no#, different serial no#.
(I so hate giving out bad news!)

The choice is your's.
Good luck & best wishes

    To get in to the bios. As soon as you turn on the PC start pressing the Delete key on the key board every 2 seconds.

    The Bios menus will load. Instructions on how to move around in the bios are loacated at the bottom of the screen. (The mouse does not function while in the bios).



    It will help if you have your manual while in the bios. If you missplaced your manual you can download it from Asus, just click the link below.

    http://support.asus.com/download/downloa...



    Go to pg. 4.4 in your manual. Look for onboard Audio & change to disable.



    det60, I know this was helpful & you did vote thank you but I was thinking this is more of a fixya. I do this to help people like you. I do not get paid nore would I want to get paid. I just love helping people.

    Votes are important to me, not to FixYa.

    Listed below is another link for PCI sound / mic cards. These are US prices but you can get an idea of price to sound card specs. From 4.1 to 7.1 sound cards.

    Best wished det60.

    Oryan, Have you tried to test your mic through windows? Open control panel, open Sound and audio devices, click the voice tab than click Test Hardware. Follow the instruction on the page. If you mic fails this setup than odds are your mic is also defective. You can follow the instructions I listed above for det60.

    Good luck & best wishes

How do i get my mic to work on my Samsung 350V 15.6 Inch 6GB 500GB Laptop


Go to control panel > Hardware & Sound > Sound > Recording.

If you can see your microphone in the list Right-Click and select "Make default device"

Once you've done this Type "Sound recorder" and see if you can record your voice using it now. If you can and the Mic still doesn't work with skype, it is a skype issue; so have a look through there.

While using Skype, the person I am talking to can't hear me. It says I need to install a soundcard. What is the solution?


If the person cannot hear you then, either your mic driver not installed or not working OR the mic is not configured in Skype.
To test your mic go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder. Then record your voice and then play it back. If this is OK then the mic need to be configured in Skype.
Normal 0 To configure the mic - Open Skype - Tools - Options - Audio Settings for the Microphone THEN click on Save.

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.

Mic not working on Acer 4315 laptop using windows 7 OS


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,

You need to check if the mic/s is working?
Are you certain the Logitech webcam has a built-in mic?
To check if the mic works go to Start - All programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder and test record your voice and play back to check, also try it with the laptop's built-in mic (if it has one) and the Logitech mic.
If both mics work then you have a choice of which one you can use in Skype, most likely the best one would be the Logitech one.

You need to configure your audio settings in Skype.
When you open Skype click on Tools - Options - Audio Settings and click on Select Microphone and select the microphone you are using and save the setting.

If you still have problems get back to me with all details and error messages.

Skype microphone


When you are installing the skype software, there comes a time when skype will offer you the option to test your hardware. Here you will try out the speakers and mic, and skype will tell you if they are in skype accepted order.
My friend actually installed it not too long ago, and after the install, I saw that skype gave him the option to make a test call right on the program interface window. We used it, and it made a call to a skype computer voice which advised us that if we could hear her talking, then our speakers are fine, and to now go ahead and speak into our mic, if the mic is working we will be able to hear what we just said into it.
That was a great little way to make sure our speakers and mic were in fact working, and they were.
Try that out on your pc and your friend's pc to test components individually. If you are unable to find the test call option, or the option to test components, you can uninstall skype and reinstall the latest version, which may not be a bad idea to preclude any other weird problems which may be at fault.
Hope that helps.
