Head to the Control Panel, and click on Sounds and Audio Devices.

Go to the Playback tab, and check that nothing is currently set to mute.

Under the Recording tab, verify that microphone is checked.

I found the sound and recording and the mic seems to be working, when I make a noise the green bar goes up. I can hear the other party on Skype but they cannot hear me.

Would you like me to remote into the machine and try to get it working?
