Ok, now does it work in any other applications? Is it listed the sound settings?
What may be wrong is that some other mic or device bumped it from skype, so in skype
click on the call menu>Audio Settings...> and then check to see if the proper microphone is selected.

Hope this works, feel free to ask any other questions,

is it a laptop? (most of the time only laptops have a build in MIC) do you have the exact model for us?

Does it show up in the sound options in control panel? If it isn't it may not be plugged in ( The wire that goes from the keyboard to the mic on the screen area (If thats the way your laptop is setup that way) could be severed)
Or the drivers disappeared so its not being recognized. You can usually find drivers at your manufacturers website.

Sorry if this doesnt help but this is all I could think of, hope you other guys can help more
