    Notebook: microphone and internal camera not working yet

    We got a Genuine notebook computer. It was the last one in the shop. I guess therefore it is already natural older than others.

    Ubuntu 8.04 installed to my surprise without any problems and even booted afterwards.

    Two things are not working:

    1. microphone.
    Regardless if I plug in a microphone or use the internal it does not work.
    If, however, you are plug in/out the microphone you can hear that cracky noise. I also can hear myself via the microphone, but Audacity and Skype do not get any sound of it.

    I read that I should upgrade Alsa. I wonder if Ubuntu 8.04 has not already the newest Alsa. How can I see which version of Alsa I have? More important is of course how to fix it.


    2. Internal Web camera
    I booted in Windows first and saw in Device Manager, that the camera is a BisonCam,NB Pro
    In the logs is nothing about a camera.
    What am I going to do next?

    bye
