Unable to hear own voice via microphone, I can hear sound
I have a Toshiba Satellite M35X-S329 laptop computer. All of my volumes are on (nothing is muted). I have gone through all of the volume checks to see if there is something wrong, but nothing yet tells me why I am unable to hear my voice via microphone. I am trying to use my computer to make phone calls via SKYPE service. Can you help me. I also have a service contract on this computer through your store.

Re: Unable to hear own voice via microphone, I can hear...
For you to comunicate through Skype, you don't normally need to hear your voice when you talk. But if you want to you can.
Try to double click your speaker icon from the lower right side of your screen ( where you can find the system clock). A window will open and will show you several volume controls. From that window click the File and go to properties. From there put a check on the box beside the microphone. click Apply and Ok. Click the File menu again and this time put click Advance Controls. A clickable Advance menu will come out at the bottom of your Mic Volume control. Click it and enable the Mic Boost. Click Ok and then uncheck the mute box from the Mixer Window. You should be able to hear your voice or a strong feedback from your speakers.

This is the issue regarding the Internal Microphone in the Computer.
Your contacts cannot hear you, until you have enabled the Microphone in the Computer.
You will find the information to enable the Microphone below:
1) Double-click on the Volume Control.
2) Select the "Properties" option from the "Options" menu.
3) Select the "Recording" option in the "Adjust volume for" section. Click the OK button. Check the box labeled "Select" under the microphone volume and you should now be able to adjust the volume for the microphone.
1) Right Click the Volume Icon at the bottom right corner of your screen [The Task bar]. 2) Click [Playback Devices].3) Right Click the [Speakers] Icon and click Properties.4) Click the [Levels] Tab; and there you will see the Microphone Volume slider (The one at the very bottom of the "HD Audio output" and "PC Beep" sliders where you can un-mute the mic playback. Windows 7: 1) Click on Start (the Windows icon) and type sound.2) Click on Sound under Control Panel.3) Click on Recording tab. Select Microphone and click on Properties.4) Click on Levels tab. The default Microphone Boost is set to 0. Increase it.5) Close all the dialog boxes, and the microphone will be ready for use. Hope this helps.
Right click on the sound icon by the clock.Choose "open with volume control."...select options menu tab.---properties---make sure microphone is checked, click ok...make sure mic is not muted. it comes this way standard for security.
Is your microphone built-in or external?
To test your microphone click on the record program to test it.
It is located in - Start - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound recorder.
Record your voice and play back to test.
We need to know what is happening when you try to play a sound. Do you hear anything? This is a laptop and you can turn the sound on and off by using your keyboard--pressing the function key at the bottom left of your keyboard and then pressing the sound volume key which is one of the function keys at the top of the keyboard (the ones with the little speaker pictures on them). Your Toshiba may also have a volume control on the side of the machine. You must also check the control panel (the icon that says sounds and audio devices). Does it show a sound device when you click on it? Check to see if the "mute" box is checked. If so, uncheck it. When you click on the Sounds tab, can you see Windows events at the bottom of the screen with little speakers beside them? If so, can you click on one of the events and then click on the right arrow just to the right of the sound events? Is the arrow dark or light when you click on the sound event? If it's dark, you should hear the sound. If it's light, you need to go to Toshiba's website and download the correct sound drivers for your computer.
You need to check that all of your sound devices are enabled. Most laptops will shut down certain devices when on battery to conserve power.
There are setting available to alter the microphone gain in the sound settings part of the control panel. Under Sounds and Audio Devices Properties. Check the sound recording section under audio, make sure the microphone is enabled and that the volume slider is not at minimum. Under XP there is a test hardware button that should help.
