View Full Version : [SOLVED] Microphone on HP dv6 not working

December 29th, 2009, 01:58 PM
So my microphone stopped working on my HP dv6 for skype. I really am at a loss. I thought it might have been a problem with my Skype, so I reinstalled it. The mic worked on a test call, but then I restarted my computer and it didn't work after that.

I have no idea where to even begin troubleshooting the mic.

A bump for the afternoon.

I fixed it!!! If you use your alsamixer app in the terminal you can change the gain on the inputs....



Then press tab to get into the inputs menu...I just turned on the microphone and voila!
