Hi. I'm running Hardy. My Soundcard is HDA intel, and my Sounchip is STAC9271X. I have my microphone plugged to the back of my computer (as my front mic port didn't work, even when I first got it.
I've tried configuring with skype, and I got it to work somehow once. Sadly, there was unbearable static in the recording and you couldn't really understand anything I said.
I also just tried audacity and it wouldn't pick up Any sound at all. Also, Sound recorder didn't pick up anything from any output.
I've attached screenshots of my Alsamixer, Playback, and capture, along with my volume controls, showing all of the possible devices.
PLease help. It's essential that my microphone works correctly.
Also, it would help if there is any compiling or something involved,to help me though it.. Because I've only been on linux for about a week, and I have absolutely no clue how to compile or do advanced things like that.
Thank you all in advance.
