Is it just Skype? Can you record into another application (e.g. audacity)?. If not then you probably need to mess with the mixer (alsamixer) or KMix to select the correct audio input. Depending on your sound card there might be some alsa module options that need to be set. What computer is it?

I cannot use the microphone in Skype. The loudspeakers work, i.e. I hear but cannot speak to anyone, not even does the test microphone work. On the same computer my dual-booted Windows 7 works flawlessly.
