Problems with the recording feature

When I try to make a call or video call, or when someone tries to call me, the call does not get completed. I have uninstalled and re-installed Skype a couple of times and that didn't help. Then I tried to complete an "Echo, Sound Test", and then I got a message saying that there is a problem with the recording feature.


Any ideas for how I should deal with this problem?

Re: Problems with the recording feature

This message indicates that there are problems with your microphone. What settings do you have for Microphone in Tools -> Options -> Audio settings? Are there more than one option available in the selection box? Do you see any response on the Volume bar when you make any sound?
