View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dell Inspiron 15n Mic Doesn't Work

September 16th, 2009, 08:50 PM
I just installed Skype on my Inspiron 15n running Ubuntu 9.04 and have been able to successfully use the webcam. However, it seems like my microphone doesn't work (internal to the laptop). It's set within Skype to use the "Pulse Server" and I have no other options/devices to select from.

I've checked my audio preferences in Ubuntu and it seems all sliders (front mic, recording, etc.) are turned up and unmutted. Not sure what else could cause this problem, any thoughts?

Also, the main laptop speakers are abnormally quiet even though the volume sliders are (also) turned up completely. Thanks to anyone who can help.
