Audio input/microphone problem with Skype

872 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Antonmzhelskiy02
I've just installed Skype for the first time on an HP laptop running Windows 8 . I can't get the microphone to work at the moment.
I'm pretty sure the problem is related to the external USB soundcard I use to record audio from a turntable and cassette player into my latop. This was a necessary addition when they stop having seperate sockets for audio in/out.
When I plug the usb soundcard in, it does produce an additional microphone icon in 'sound' but enabling it doesnt make a difference.

Any suggestions for getting his working so I can be heard on Skype?

thanks in advance!

You need to change which device is used for recording in the control panel. You should have more than one to choose from.
thanks for the reply. I only have one option in the recording panel which is 'headset mic' and it says not plugged in.
So where do you think you have a mic plugged in?
What is the model number of the laptop?
get a head set if that doesn't work replace your sound card
