my onboard mic was screwed. Do you have realtek HD audio input/output?
Its what i had, vista installed it all, was so happy then mic and line in wouldnt work.
I had to download the actual realtek drivers from..realtek.
Installed the HD part of the sound plus a utility and bingo :)

Or even simpler..is your mic turned on in audio properties..silly question but overlooked alot :) also does it have the mic boost

let us know

Control Panel--->Sound--->Recording tab, two microphones must be there... one the inbuilt mic and other the external mic... when u use external mic, set it as default, it should say "working" with a green tick on its name...then click on properties, confirm if Under Default Format , the lowest sample rate and bit depth available, such as 2 channel, 16 bit, 48000 Hz (DVD Quality). set the boost as +20 dB. Njoy Skype then...

also, if the name of both the mics are same in recording tab, change the one for external..."e.g. Microphone-External".... will work... As vista doesn't recognise two different mic devices with same name and will priortize internal over external...
