> First check the microphone and speaker if they are properly plugged in or they are active. Also, check that they are not set as muted. If required then test the microphone by using with other device and be sure that they are not defective.

> If you have not updated the Skype then download and install the latest version as the newer version can eliminate any issues of the older version including no sound problem.

> Also update the audio/microphone/webcam drivers if possible. You can use the Update Device Drivers function of your machine’s operating system. It can be done by going to the manufacturer’s site as well. Check in the sites for any new versions of the Drivers for your system.
