Skype does not detect microphone

I have a Genius Eye110 webcam with a built in mic, I downloaded Skype and it says that "Skype does not detect a sound card" which it does. I can usemy camera but no mic

Re: Skype does not detect microphone

try to set the sound input to microphone.

 

In the call, Click Call quality >> Microphone >> Set the input to your microphone.

Re: Skype does not detect microphone

microphone test shows it is working OK, I can hear it through speakers too. Atempts to make a telephone call fail, because Skype cannot detect sound card, restart on PC does notcure this
