Can't hear anything....

Novel Tourist

Recently Skype hasn't been giving me any sound.
I did everything the website told me to do in order to fix the problem, but it still won't work.. I can't hear any of my friends talk, I don't get the notification noise when someone messages me, and I don't hear the ringing when I call someone or they call me.

I've got the same problem! No sounds at all - no one can hear me - no noise - I've done the test, I've uninstalled and re-installed (including the hidden files) - I've done everything every help site suggests!

I had the same problem for a while and I discovered that it was an error in my audio settings. Go to skype tools>options>audio settings and you should see a box for microphone and speakers, if your friends can hear you then your microphone is working, leave it as is. Now change the speakers to the any of the other choices and test it by calling the skype test call. Test each of the choices in the speakers box and you should find one that works. : )

I had the same problem in my Windows skype. I could not hear anything with my headset on. I changed the Audio setting as follows:

Microphone: headset microphone (bluetooth hands free which I am using)

--You can select the appropriate headset of yours or default speaker.

Speakers: Same as above

Ringing: Same as above


Saved it and it started working.
