So ive recently bought a new computer and started getting all the programs i more or less use daily.. the problem is that i cant seem to skype working properly, just doesnt record any sound at all while its certainly not my PC since i can recor sounds in the recorder or use any other kind of voicechat, this only goes for skype....
I've tried numerous things to get it to work i.e re-installing sound drivers, re-install Skype, trying older versions, mix around in both windows and skype sound settings..
The only thing i've noticed is when i turn on micboost in windows my friends hear distorted buzz but thats it, and i get a popup saying that my mic's is set on really low volume output...
Thanks in advance!
According to Skype settings, you are using a microphone connected to your soundcard (Realtek High Definition Audio). When you go to Windows Sound Control Panel -> Recording devices, do you see the same microphone selected as your default recording device?

i see no other options. thats the only one
Edit: screenshot just to well, show skype isnt responding
If you are sure that the Realtek HD audio driver is up-to-date, then you can try to reset Skype settings.
Quit Skype or use Windows task Manager to kill any Skype.exe process. Go to Windows Start and in the Search box type %appdata%, press Enter. The Windows File Explorer will popup. Locate there a folder with the name Skype. Rename this folder to something different, e.g. Skype_old. Restart Skype.
still nothing, tried calling Echo and was just silent, did try though basically blowing into the mic and then i could hear a slight slight buzz but thats basically it
