Trouble with microphone

I just set up Skype for the first time.  I'm on Windows XP, trying to use a Logitech combo microphone / camera.  It is not working even though it is set as the default in the control panel.  I ran MS Fix It, but no result.  Probably I'm overlooking something stupid, but yes the USB connection is plugged in. Any suggestions most appreciated.

Re: Trouble with microphone

What is the currently installed Skype version? In Skype go to Help -> About Skype.


What do you see when in Skype you go to Tools -> Options -> Video settings?


What device is selected as Microphone in Tools -> Options -> Audio settings? Is there more than one option available in the selection box? Can you see any response on the Volume bar when your make any sound?
