    The settings are in the Skype program
    I remember that a USB Mic sometimes causes Skype not to configure itself smoothly

    Are they two exact same (hardware ) laptops?

    Usually Skype configures itself to the default Mic

    Actually I spent a few hours on this once, and set up Skype with a USB Mic, ( which took ages on all the Windows Settings, then the individual Skype (Mic) settings; then test (using the Skype test.
    All went well. Until the next week when it all stopped again!

    Eventually purchase an older plug in Mic (jack) and it fixed it (after fiddling with all the settings again of course)

    That's just Skype for you.
