Hi all !
I have troubles with making my microphone work on my Toshiba laptop, AMD64.
I can hear my voice clearly in Vista, but in Ubuntu ( Hardy ) it's just quiet ! I tried both in Sound Recorder and in Skype. The last one is the reason why I need sound recording. What should I do ?
Thanks.

I'm not sure what you mean by interpid and how to check it. Can you please explain ?

It might be the simple route.

Double Click on your Sound icon in your panel, check you Recording tabs, and make sure your volume is set high enough.

This solution was given before and it's not working.
