View Full Version : [SOLVED] Mic not working on HP mini 1030nr

August 9th, 2010, 11:45 PM
I recently installed Ubuntu Netbook on my computer and everything works fine except for the internal mic. I can't make it work properly. I'm completely new to Ubuntu and I don't know how to configure settings properly. When I run sound recorder and record all I get is a rustling sound. Left some screenshots of the settings, if that helps in anyways. Will appreciate any help on this.

Never mind I got it working.I just had to go into sound preference and change the connector to "Line-in/Microphone". Then I adjusted a couple of settings in Alsamixer and it worked.
