Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N250E/B Notebook ?

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-FZ220E. The person I talk to on Skype can not hear me and Skype gives me a message that my microphone is silent. I go to Control Panel/ Audio and look at "Recording Devices" and there are two. The top one says "currently unavailable" and the bottom one says "working." How can I fix?


Answers :

The unavailable device could be the mic jack for the external mic. Try going into the skype options menu and select the mic audio there. It will also test it at the same time. Good Luck
