    couple things to try:

    I'm going to base this off of Ubuntu, if you are using something else you'll have to either post again so I can alter the instructions slightly or just do the appropriate adjustments yourself:

    open terminal
    sudo apt-get install alsamixergui
    go to applications, sound & video, alsamixergui

    check to make sure that the mic is up and not muted

    then open skype
    open the options
    sound devices
    look at "sound in" and see what options there are, do a test call with each of them and see which one functions right (some might spit out errors, if it does just move on to the next one, I have 10 options for sound in and only one of them works right (I know, not sure why they have so many options but that's how it goes)
