I truly hate skype, it is always my main source of headaches when I upgrade. The microphone just never works. Anyway, I need to use for work so I'm stuck trying to get it working.
I'm on a Dell Vostro 1400 (same hardware as many Inspirons) running F16. My internal mic works for any other application (for example sound recorder), but with skype it just doesn't. Sometimes I get the faintest recording, usually nothing. I've tried everything I can think of but it doesn't work. I can't remember what I've done exactly in the past to get it working. Any ideas? Btw, it works ok with F16 in a different laptop.
