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.


Answers :

Hi Grace,\015\012
\015\012IN 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". \015\012In 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. \015\012
\015\012Hope this helps.\015\012Ed\015\012PS: 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.
