I am trying to set up the microphone so I can use Skype

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Skype?

I purchased this Dell in May/17 and have not used Skype. When I go on Skype they recognize me but when I try to call Echo to test quality of sound nothing happens

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Skype?

Just to call Echo.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

Does the webcam work with Skype?

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

Are you using the built in microphone or an external microphone?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I found that my microphone does work and that my problem seems to be with Skype.. I downloaded Skype again, but it still does not work.
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

Do you see any error messages?

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No. I think that my problem may be with the fact that I have a new computer with Windows 10 and Skype built in to it.
Am I on a free trial or will there be a charge?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No, do not secure connect yet
Tech Support Specialist: Josh, Support Specialist replied 8 months ago

This is a paid service; not free.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
