Default My mic just... stopped working.

It was working earlier today, but... now it doesn't, for some odd reason. I've been on Skype talking and such, but it apparently stopped working at some point. When I'm on Skype, people can hear like, my music and mouse clicking, but not my voice. Which, I think suggests the fact that my laptop is using its built in microphone or something. Anyways, is there anything I could give/tell you guys so you could possibly figure it out? I need my mic working. ._.

Yeah, pretty sure it's using the microphone on the laptop now, rather than using the microphone on my headset which I have plugged in. x.x

Check your Skype's settings.

It's not working on TS or Ventrilo either, so I know it's not Skype. It was working fine yesterday and this morning... ugh. ._.

Maybe the mic jack thingy on my headset went bad or my mic went bad or something? @_@ Kinda... dumb for that to randomly happen, though.

Still didn't fix it. ;_; In a little while, I'll plug my headset into my desktop PC and see if it works there. If it does, then I guess uninstalling and reinstalling the software will fix it. If not, broken headset.

Yea you can do that xD, Though I somewhat get the feeling it's the driver.

It's a HP laptop. But I fixed it. Reinstalled the sound drivers.

Oddly enough, I was going to ask you to do that before.
