Verify video chat settings

If there is a video or sound problem, change the driver on the problem device.

I can't see/hear my friend

My friend can't see/hear me

I have the exact same problem.  I can hear a barely-audible high-pitched series of buzzes like the phone's ringing, which stops (presumably after the person picks up the phone).  I can't hear the person at all, and after a bit they hang up (they probably can't hear me either).  It wasn't like this before; my settings are the same as before, so what gives?

I should add that I can't hear the ring tone either (just the barely-audible sound previously mentioned)

Turning up the speaker volume does not help?  Did you try the suggestions that I posted?

Upgrade your Audio Drivers per  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ypx-dpz1zSc

Are you using a USB microphone headset instead of the two-prong variety since many of the two-prongs do not provide full Duplexing http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duplex_(telecommunications)#Full-duplex
 
I have my Microphone settings at https://mail.google.com/mail/?hl=en&shva=1#settings/chat set to my PC settings and PC Speakers set to Default. Does not matter if I use my PC mic/speakers or my USB headset http://shop.skype.com/headsets/usb/iss-talk-5115-everyman/

I'm not an idiot! Yes my speakers work for everything else, and i have not touched the settings since the last time gchat worked.  I've been using built-in microphones from my laptop this whole time.

@sleepstandingup, sorry that you felt treated like an idiot.  Unfortunately, we don't know from here everything you have tried, so we have to check every silly thing, although we probably won't ask whether you turned on the power!

We still don't know what operating system you use, what browser and which of the suggestions made above you have tried.  It is of no help to us to know that you "have not touched the settings since the last time gchat worked" because all operating systems and browsers constantly update themselves and these updates have been known to break other applications regularly.
