Hi there and welcome to Just Answer, my name is Richard and I look forward to helping you.

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble. I know that can be frustrating. Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

In Skype, can you please go to settings, then Audio

Then set the Microphone onto one of the other devices in the list and see if the Microphone is then working by placing a test call.

Let me know how you go please
