    9.04 Ubuntu Studio Mic Problems on HP Laptop

    I just installed Ubuntustudio on my HP laptop and am not getting any signal from two different microphones.

    First, I plugged in my mixer and tested a condensor mic. I didn't get any signal from Ardour, Audacity or the Gnome audio recorder.

    I tried seeing if I could find a signal using the Pulseaudio meter, but no luck. I tinkered with capture device in my sound preferences and no luck.

    Next, I plugged in a simple desktop microphone and gathered the same results.

    Could someone help me or point in the right direction? I'm out of ideas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    These are very hardware specific problems so the model of your machine is critical to getting it fixed. I have a partial list here and there are links to other lists. You can also try a search of the forums or google. Be very specific about your hardware.

    This post helps:

    plus:


    If Internal Mic Volume is low in some laptops especially DELL, you can try it increasing. Click pulse audio applet and goto manager. Select Manager and click Devices tab. Under Sources select alsa input something like that and click properties. Try increasing the volume to 150% or so and test your mic volume using sound recorder. Hope this solves the low volume mic problem.
