My HP laptop microphone is not working. There is a slot shared by the speaker and microphone /headphones for 3.5 -cable. There is a second speaker on the laptop. I do not know if there is a second microphone on the laptop. My voice cannot be heard by others on skype etc while I can hear theirs. No change by plugging in external microphone or headphones. Microphone is not showing up in device manager, which is below
