External Microphone Volume goes low automatically

Hi ,

I dont know if this question was asked before . I have bought a new DELL Inspiron 1564 laptop . With windows 7 operating system . Now when i use skype or yahoo or other application to talk to my family and friends they complain that they can hardly haer my voice so i have went to Control Panel > Realtek HD audio Manager . There the external microphone was my default device so i clicked on it and i found that the volume was very low some where aound 4 . So i increaded it to maximum and continued the conversation and they were llike they can hear my voice perfectly then again after few sec they complained so i checked again and the voice was at 4 again . when ever i increase the volume and start taking the voice volume drop to either zero or minimum .

I have to keep on increasing the volume constantly to talk . Yesterday i had a converstion with my mom for 20 mins and i had to keep on increasing the volume 10 - 20 time every minute it is reallly annoying me . And i willl tell you one more thing its not head phone problem i have boought 3 headphone of different brand thinking the low voice was because of head phones

Please some one help me . Hopefully someone will come up with a solution to this and quickly . If not i will go to the shop from where i had purchased the laptop and ask him install XP on it

Not sure if it's the same on a laptop.

Right click on the Microsoft Speaker icon in the taskbar. (it's actually easier than using the Realtek control panel.)

Select "Playback Devices" then select the "Communications" tab.

Select "Do Nothing" then click the Apply button.

if you have skype, goto tools, then options, then where it says automatically adjust microphone settings, uncheck it that should fix the problem

Microphone volume won't stay put
I want to lower my microphone volume from 100 to 50. When I do it, it will stick around for a little while (while I record something), but then it will jump back to 100 sometime after I'm done or even before I start. For some reason, the adjustment just won't be saved. I'm hitting OK to close the...
