You can get a headset just about anywhere they do come with a microphone as well attached to it the headset it would be easier to Skype with the all in one set up. Once you purchase one it will looks like this picture below. WalMart has them Bestbuy and even the Dollar Tree may have them they are not that expensive. Thanks for using FixYa! please post a vote for me if I was helpful John

Can I use a plug in microphone to use skype on a Dell precision M70


I haven't set up Skype before, but it seems quite reasonable that if the Sound control panel is set to use the external microphone, that would work. Have you checked to see if the sound input is set to an internal microphone built into the laptop, or a line-level input? That could be your problem, especially if no such microphone is present.

Trying to use skype. does the acer 5517 have a microphone


This model Acer laptop does not have a built-in microphone.
To use Skype you need a micphone or a WEBcam with a built-in microphone.
Logitech have this type of WEBcam.

I am trying to use skype on my acer 7315 does it have a built in microphone? thanks!


try clicking start --> Devices and Printers and check for any microphone device in that list. If there is one, and you dont have one connected via USB port, there most likely is an inbuilt microphone.

Where is the built-in microphone.No one can hear me on Skype, yet it says microphone volume is low onscreen and I reset to high, but it still reads LOW


Microphone should be located on the lid of laptop above the screen by the latch release button. You will see a small rectangular hole (if you have a built-in webcam it is to the left of it)
