View Full Version : [ubuntu] Integrated mic on Lenovo SL510 not working

January 20th, 2010, 07:59 PM
though its working on windows7, am unable to make it work on ubuntu 32
bit 9.10...
for that matter, even an external mic doesn't work here...

the sound recorder doesn't capture any sound; and even if i increase the input volume under volume control, all that i get is noise ("chissshhhh")

Please Help...

PS: I'm just a month old on ubuntu...

Did you tried to switch internal/external mic?

This was new to me as well, you need to select internal or external source, for example "alsamixer" in terminal, the hit tab to see input sources.
