View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound problem on mic on front port of Laptop

August 18th, 2009, 06:17 PM

Well I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and I'm currently running Ubuntu 9.04.

I have just gone through the "Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=205449)" and it was, I fear, of no help... I know my sound card works as I can hear fine... but when I try and record (or use skype etc.) using my microphone it sounds as if I am very, very, very, far away... I've tried playing around with volume settings (and honestly, there are so many I'm not even sure which is which half the time) and all it does is make the background noise so deafening you can't hear anything :(...

What am I missing? (Doing wrong)
