Good day
Look at the top of your skype program where you see, Skype, Contacts, Conversation and so forth, look for and click on "Tools" after you click on Tools a little window will pop down and then click on "Options", then look to the left and click on "Audio Settings".

The window to the right will change at the top you will see "Microphone" click on the drop down box to the right of it and a list of all your microphones will come up click on each and test until you find the one that you are currently using.

I have attached pictures below to assist you.

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.

I understand that you are not able to us the microphone with Skype. As per the information provided in User Guide for the model it seems that the model has an Internal microphones .

Try configuring the internet microphone to use with Skype.
Open Skype - Tools - options- Audio settings- Set the input device as internal microphone and check the operation.

When on skype the person i am calling cannot hear me but i can hear them


It sounds like your microphone settings may be incorrect. Make sure if your computer has an internal microphone that the settings are set to use the correct device. You can check in the Skype preferences.

If you have an external microphone (one you must plug in to the computer) try testing it on another computer to make sure it has not malfunctioned.

I have a toshiba l305-S5957 and can't find an internal mic for use with skype


While most laptops comes with a built in webcam and microphone, this particular model does not. If you don't see a web cam built in to the top of your screen, chances are you also won't find an internal microphone. You'll need to purchase additional accessories in order to use your laptop with Skype.

Microphone does not work


Yes, sometimes Skype messes with your hardware settings and sets it up to what "skype thinks works best", if you have System Restore turned on, try going back to the time before you installed that version of Skype.

Also, look in your Device Manager settings for anything screwy.
