    If you right click the speaker icon and select recording devices, do you show any microphones in that window? The default mic should have a green check mark.

    You can then select it and configure, which might help.

    Does you sound work normally otherwise?

    My most probable response would be you need to fine some additional drivers. If you can find a Win 7 legacy driver for your system you might try that. If all else fails and you cannot get it to work, you might try a Vista driver.

    If you open the sound, recording window, and right click, you might try "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices".

    Have you tried other type of microphones? I have never used skype, so there may be something with it that needs updating.

    ok well no luck with the disabled or disconnected devices.
    ill look for a win 7 legacy driver.
    Issue with finding the mic driver is because i do not know the name of the mic device.
    pretty sure skype isnt the issue either cause the mic wont come up on ventrilo either.

    ok i fixed it. I went to toshiba and they had a new sound driver for windows 7 64bit.
    installed that and it was discovered.
