Skype says there is no mic?

Since today my skype says I haven't got a mic. I do have a mic on my laptop. Also, when I click on soundrecorder, it says there is none. 


I tried everything. I followed all the steps from the guide. It just doesn't works? 

I have Windows 8 and I'm also not really used to it yet. So I'm not so handy with everything.


Can someone please help me or tell me what to do?

Re: Skype says there is no mic?

You have a hardware problem. Check Device Manager and check for any disabled hardware. Reboot the PC in safe mode and try the Mic and check the Device Manager as well.
