    i had the same problem too!! it was very frustrating at the time......

    make sure you have the latest version of Skype
    go to Control Panel>Ease of Access>Start speech recognition
    it should work after that, if not go into skype and play with mic settings again

    if not use a headset while u work it out, skype worked with a headset

    hope it works!! :)

    What i did

    What you do is:
    - Go to Control Panel
    - Go to Speech Recognition
    - Go to Advanced Speech Options
    - Go to Audio input
    - Go to tab Communications
    - Click: Do nothing
    Worked for me, i also have a macbook pro, i installed bootcamp too. Now skype works fine:D
    Let me know if it works:p

    If you mic is not usb powered it won't get power in bootcamp, major flaw, but thats just how it is. It simply will not work.
