How do I get the mic to work on my laptop? I have skype and I can hear the conversation just fine. But when I want to use a mic to speak to my friends, I keep getting something about my sound card. What do I do?

    Would you be able to post a screen shot of the message you receive?

    PrintScrn on the top right of your keyboard, go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Paint. Now go to Edit, Paste.

    Box out the little message you get with the tool at the top right of the toolbar on the left, the dotted-line box. Copy the image in the box by right-clicking on it and click "copy".

    Now go to File, New. Paste the image in the new canvas. Save as whatever name you want.

    Upload the image athttp://imageshack.us and post the link here, or if you have the option on your screen, click the "Insert Image" button, with the picture of a tree. Choose the file you want to upload (the screenshot you took) and put it here.

Hi bob_durek assuming you have the same problem with MSN messenger or any other software, please go to start -control panel- Sound. Then click on the voice tab and Audio tab and see under Voice Recording you see a device, meaning your mic. If you do see a device, click on Volume and make sure the "Select" is checked. Restart Skype and run the audio wizard to make sure everything is working. Dont forget to rate if my answer helped you. Thank you :D

Hi kasper,

I see that you are having issues with the system regarding the mic, you can hear your friends quite fine but when you start to speak they hear you but it lags or is choppy is that correct?

I saw on your notes that you've already done basically everything on the system untill reinstalling windows have you tried a diffent MIC to use and see the difference.

I hope that this helps.

Have a nice day,

My microphone won't work. I can't hear my voice.Toshiba Satellite


Check which microphone device u have set up. Try changing it around. Also try just speaking closer to the microphone and into the mic. Some mics just are not good.

Please help me


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.
