Try Skype with another party to see if you have the same results. It could be a problem with their equipment.

In Vista, go to Control Panel->Sound->Recording tab. Check to see if a microphone is listed. See if anything is disabled and then enable the device.

Hope this helps.

What do you do if the built in microphone for the Toshiba Satellite M305D-S4840 is not working (not picking up sound)?

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

I have a toshiba satellite a200 with a built in microphone, it says that's it it working but when i go to record my voice nothing is there. It is just static. Or when i'm on skype the other person can't...

There are two main sources windows uses for Audio In (what you are trying to do) usually there is a Mic or audio in port (headphone jack) and there is a built in microphone. You may need to tell windows to listen to the built in microphone instead of the mic in port on the laptop. To do this right click the speaker icon in your system tray (down near the time) and click on Recording devices. If you are using windows 7 you will see your available recording devices with a sound bar next to them and you will see movement on the sound bar as you make noise. Just make sure you set your default device to the internal microphone here and you should be all set.

How do i get the mic to work on my laptop. I can hear people but they cannot hear me when i use the skype programme.

Hi Grace,
IN Skype I would recommend you do a "test" call..(You can find how to make a test call under: Tools -> Options -> Audio settings) You'll see a link at the bottom that says: "Make a test call". In the same "Audio settings" page of Skype you'll see your audio devices. Make sure you have the right microphone selected. If it's properly connected and selected, when you are in this page and you talk into you mic, the little horizontal bar under the Mic selection should light up each time you make a noise.
Hope this helps. Ed PS: bare in mind that laptops such as the Toshiba Satellite A105 doesn't have a built in mic and you need to buy one separately and plug it in into the mic jack.
