    Yes, this does work and even on Ubuntu 11.10. I've gotten a G770 (same specs as G570 but with 17" screen) to work. My sound.conf was empty but I entered the "options snd-hda-intel model=asus" and restarted the system, and the MIC works perfectly now.

    You must edit /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf

    Code:
    options snd-hda-intel model=asus
    I'm using Kubuntu 11.04, and I had "model=thinkpad" by default. Changing to "model=asus" and reboot alsa with:

    Code:
    sudo alsa force-reload
    Note: Sometimes, when I've tried to reload service alsa, it failed because pulseaudio was working. Reboot and go.

    You could test it with:
    Code:
    arecord -D hw:0,0 -vv -f cd ~/test.wav

    Lenovo G570 is a crap! The laptop box started to disintegrate. Avoid it!

    Thank you, aruizcon!

    I had the same problem and your solution worked.
    I just had to restart the system, because alsa didn't want to reload
    the modules (saying "unload failed: these modules are still loaded...").
