I was able to use skype until I was recently messing around with the recoding tab under the sound options. I believe I deleted something, and now only the external mic and stereo mix devices show. I didn't discover the problem until I tried to use skype again and have no mic available. I went into the IDT HD Sound options (trying to figure out how to fix it) and can see that there is an integrated microphone array, but it appears to be disabled with appearent way to fix the problem.
Thank you in advance for the help!

On Sound Window, on Recording Tab, right click on Empty Space, click 'Show Disabled Devices', and 'Show Hidden Devices'.
If Microphone Appears, right click and click Enable, select it, click Set as Default.
Check if it works, if not, you need to uninstall and reinstall the Driver.
1. Click Start, type: DEVMGMT.MSC in Search Field and Press Enter. It opens Device Maanger Window.
2. Go to 'Sound, Video and Game Controllers' category, and expand it. Right click on IDT High Definition Audio Device entry and click Uninstall
3. Click Start->All Programs=>REcovery Manager->click Hardware Dirver installation, select Sound Driver entry, and click Install.
Say thanks by clicking the "Kudos! Star" which is on the left.

We are trying to use skype with my HP Pavilion dv7. However, the microphone is not working on my laptop. I can hear the person I am trying to talk to but they can't hear me. What do I do?

I followed your instructions as best I could but with no effect.
I followed the first two points and (believe) I uninstalled the driver.
- under point 3: the "REcovery manager" is the "HP recovery manager," correct?
- I didn't see any "hardware driver" so instead installed the "audio driver."
Ahen I checked back with the integrated microphone, I was told the driver was installed. What I don't know is what happened in between.

I followed the instructions given in this thread, but the integrated microphone array still gives no output after reinstalling the device driver. What to try next?

I tried the suggestions posted earlier, but Skype is still refusing to recognize the microphone on my dv7. I went to Device Manager and the correct driver is installed; I went to Sound on the Control Panel and the little green bar lit up appropriately when I spoke to my computer. Why is Skype being so mean to me? HELP!
