Microphone does not work in Windows 7 64 bit

I need help very badly with microphone not working on Win 7 64 bit. I see many people are having the same problem. Any solution to this problem? Dpalmagra.

Go to Tools -> Options -> Audio settings. What options do you see there for the Microphone?

I see Microphone/Line In (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC)

If you go to Sound Control Panel – Recording devices, do you also see Line In (IDT High Definition Audio CODEC) as the active microphone selection?

I am having the same problem, when I check the driver it is 32 bit not 64

Is this the problem and how do you install 64 bit?

Re: Microphone does not work in Windows 7 64 bit

I just downloaded and installed the latest version of Skype.  I have a HP Pavilion laptop running Windows 7 (64 bit).  My built-in mic works in other applications, but not Skype!  I see it is selected as the audio input/mic in the Skype audio settings.  However, though I see a green arrow next to the speakers indicating they are working (and they are), I don't see one next to the mic. Thanks,
