View Full Version : [kubuntu] Odd sound problem

September 17th, 2009, 09:26 PM
I'm trying to record sound using a microphone with a normal 3.5mm jack. When I make a sound, it comes out of the speakers but won't record. I've tried the usual things (playing around with sliders, making sure the right things are unmuted) but I can't get sound to record with any programme.

I'm using KDE Jaunty, HDA nVidia, AD198x Analog (whatever that last bit means).

Grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction!

(Sorry if this is a bit obvious - I've had a look for similar threads and can't find anything. Bit new to all this.)

I've been doing some digging and checked with a couple of people and it would appear that it's a hardware failure.
