You can download the Skype 2.1 beta version from skype website. Then install it.

After installing login to your account.
Then go for the green button at the left hand bottom of the skype window.
There go to options --->> sound settings.
Toggle with your sound out options.

Then just test your skype volume for your mic by using echo testing.
If it doesnot work even then restart you system, it should work then.
