    I am unable to record sounds or use skype with my system. When I attempt to record using the ubuntu recorder the playback is white noise. Any help is appreciated.

    Download the latest version of the System76 driver from http://www.planet76.com/. It will always be the second link from the bottom.

    After that, go ahead and install the package, then click on the device menu (power icon in the far top right) and choose "system settings". Then, click on System76 Driver.

    From here, choose "Restore System" and see if that fixes it. You'll need to reboot after the restore is complete for the changes to take effect.

    Isantop, thank you for the reply.

    I followed your suggestions but there is still no joy. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    What drivers were installed on your machine? You can check by expanding the details section.

    Are you sure it still isn't working on sound recorder at least? Skype uses different settings, so that could be different. Sound Recorder should give you something though. Can you take a screenshot of the input tab of your sound settings window.

    You lost me. Only dialog for details is in Settings and there is no info on the sound driver there. Pulseaudio 1:1.1-0ubuntu15.1 what you are looking for?

    Sound recorder gives me white noise only on play back.

    Attached is my input.
