I have been using Skype for years on my desktop running Windows Vista, and more recently we use a laptop as well. Recently the audio does not work with the desktop. Have tried calling the Echo test service several times, and each time i can record a test message but cannot hear the playback. All of my connections are correct. Please help!
In Skype go to Tools -> Options -> Audio settings. What do you see selected there as your Microphone? Is there more than one option available in the selection box? Can you see any response on the Volume bar when you make any sound?
