It's probably the microphone that needs setting up. First, check to see which microphone the system is set up to use by going into Control Panel, click on 'sound' and then the 'recording' tab. See which device is set as 'default communications device', click on the 'properties' button and make sure, under the 'levels' tab, that the microphone isn't muted and is set at 100%. Next check in Skype settings that the same 'recording device' is being used as a microphone - if it isn't then select it from the drop down list of available sources. Go through Skype's set-up program to make sure that you can record/playback sounds.

Thanks. Tried this without success. I have however discovered that I need to install new driver updates, which I have done and it is now working fine.
