cant get voice recording with my microphone which is properly plugged in to the colour-coded line-in/out straight in to a headset. need it set up for an urgent call with some mates tomorrow afternoon. Cant make sense of the skype instructions so what am I doing wrong? :help: I c ant hear my own voice with the skype testing service which suggests that it needs to be configured properly in which case as I've followed their instructions what do I have to do? Thanks
all i get is this red error message saying that my voice is really quiet
What version of windows you running? Have you checked your mixer settings?
Does anything on there help?
Maybe your microphone is muted; Right-Click the little speakers icon in the bottom-left of your screen, and check on there to see if you've muted yourself.
Are you using a desktop/laptop and have you plugged it into the back/front?
check with any other headphone. if other are working fine it means problem in your mic. otherwise check the compatibility of skype and your OS. Also you can check your headphone on other messenger.
Thanks for the advice, think it's now sorted :D
