Microphone works, but won't work over the internet

Hello, I've got a Toshiba Tecra M9 computer with a built-in microphone, Vista OS. The mic appears to work fine as I am able to record with it using the Windows 'recorder' accessory. I can see the mic levels and they appear fine. I use 'Poptox.com' to make phone calls over the internet and it works fine with other computers and mics, but not with this one. I can hear the other person fine, but they don't hear me. I've tried with both 'chrome' and 'Firefox' browsers. Does anyone have any ideas ? Thank you ! Paul

This may be of help, it may be possible that an update has changed settings.

Thanks Menzie. That may very well make sense. I just tried installing 'Flash' and am not able to do it. I have to work through that one and maybe it will be the answer. Paul

I did finally get Flash installed. That didn't fix my problem though. The mic still works on the computer, just not online.
