Skype upgrade

Just upgraded Skype to version and now, when I run a sound test it fails and says "Problem with Sound Card". Can anyone help?

This usually happens where the microphone is not plugged in to the USB port - or if the mic settings are wrong.

Go to Tools - Options - Audio settings - and check that you have the correct option listed against Microphone - then click Save.

This latest update changed my setting - but it was easy to select the correct one.

Thanks all and, Sea Urchin your post did the trick.The update changed my settings too. I failed to spot it and I've altered it now...many thanks.
