Hello. Today i am having issues with my pc's sound system. At random times, my microphone cuts out and picks up what i am hearing instead. People cant hear me over skype when this happens, but they can hear themselves. Anyone got any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks,

Did this problem always occur on this computer since you've owned it, or is it a new problem? If new, how long ago did it start?

Also, is it a Desktop or a laptop? And what version of Windows are your running on it?

If the problem is new and it's happened within the last 5 months, you can rollback your Windows system to point in time prior to this problem occurring using Windows SYSTEM RESTORE.

If that doesn't work, have you tested your Microphone on a different computer? If the problem goes away, it could be your Microphone is faulty and will simply need to be replaced.

Best of luck,
