    Both of my mics work in windows; I can select them both as the default device and they respond to noise.

    In skype, if i select MIC1 and make a noise, skype detects the noise.
    However, if I select MIC2 in skype, it doesn't detect any noise.

    Only MIC1 works in skype, but not MIC2.

    Anyone know a solution?

    I've tried re-installing skype and drivers etc. multiple times- didn't work. :confused:

    Thanks for the reply.

    I can choose mics fine, but only one of them works in skype.


    All my mics work 100% in windows; using the voice recorder etc.

    No, it's the mic on my monitor, I sit quite far away and people can't hear me.

    oh.

    Tried it, didn't work.

    I also tried this with all other mics unplugged:
    Uninstall Skype
    Uninstall Realtek drivers
    -Restart
    Install Realtek drivers
    -Restart
    Install Skype

    Didn't work either.

    :confused:
