Many Skype users experience almost the same problems.  The most common of them is with their microphones.  It’s the “your microphone is too quiet” problem.  It is when you could see or hear the person on the other end, but they couldn’t hear you.

I‘ve tried to discover the best possible way to resolve this and I’ve come up with a few suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Suggested Fix “Your Microphone is Too Quiet” Problem:

Adjust the Volume Settings of your computer. On the lower right corner of the screen, double click on the speaker icon and a dialogue box shall appear.

On the “Options” drop down menu, select “Advanced Controls”.  Another dialogue box shall appear, on the lower portion select or check the “Microphone boost” or “Loud” option, then “Close”.
