    My internal microphone does not seem to be working as nobody can hear me or I cannot record a message. Can anyone help please.

    Control panel>Hardware and sound>Manage audio devices
    Or right click the sound icon in the bottom right corner of your taskbar and select recording devices.
    Do you see the microphone there? Is it enabled/disabled, or something like that?

    Two icons of the microphone appear, the default with a green tick. The icons show a picture of a desktop microphone rather that an internal one, I don't know if this is right or irrelevant.

    I configured a new microphone for a headset, which I borrowed from a friend, to make it work. I then changed the default to the other microphone icon and made it the default and the internal microphone now works. Skype does too. Thanks for the help though.
