View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intermittent behavior with my laptop's internal Conexant microphone

Except for the fact that the microphone worked for a few hours yesterday, I essentially have the same problem that all of these people described in this thread last year: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=371517

I have been trying all sorts of things with System ---> Preferences ---> Sound, but I can't get it to work again. When the problem went away yesterday, I was baffled because I hadn't done anything to fix it.

PS: Speaking of intermittent behavior, why does the elapsed time field in Sound Recorder sometimes goes WAY faster than real time after one hits the record button? The behavior here seems completely random, with the timer sometimes going at a real time rate, and sometimes not, for any given combination of settings.
