My dell620 xp plugin microphone is not working. I installed skype and put on a tigerjet webcam (w/ mic). No audio on a call to or from. I checked the webcam by switching my wife's webcam. Same issue. I reinstalled drivers and got a visual response on the windows sound check but not on skype's. Now I am getting lost. Kent

It turns out that when Magic Jack is turned on Skype audio will not work. That "not working" manifests itself as a dead microphone port. (I use MJ for all my daytime calls and never thought to turn it off. A buddy of mine suggested it as a what the hell effort.) Most of the time it is something simple, right? Kent
