Skype audio problem

Brand new Pavilion dv6, I downloaded Skype. I can see my friends, they can hear me, but I can't hear them.
Any suggestions on what to do. I've tried all the audio buttons, and I can hear all the regular sounds that Skype has. Is there a button on the computer itself that I need to press, to make the microphone work? My friends think it's my microphone, and it must be. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Here are the steps for configuring Microphone on skype....

Start Skype. Click on Tools > Options in the main menu.

Skype Options

The Skype Options panel will appear. Find the Audio Settings tab, click on it.

In the Microphone dropdown menus, select the devices on your notebook. Click Save.

Re: Skype audio problem

I tried the suggestion for the HPmini audio problem but it has not fixed the issue., When skyping, I can see the person and hear then but they can only see me. We perisistenly get the red box message that the internet connection is poor and we should turn off video to get the sound ---- doesnt' help. Besides going into Skype - Tools-options-audio, is there someplace else I can search on the Mini for a resolution. It is not an internet connection problem as skype notes because my full size laptop has no problems with skype --- neither did my asus eeepc netbook. Help, please!
