View Full Version : [SOLVED] Unable to use microphone

April 18th, 2011, 06:35 AM
Hello to all members,

Before I get all the usual annoyed people saying this has been said before, and all that what not I wish to say that Yes I have looked at old subjects and not found the solution to my problem.

As the title may infer, I am unable to use the microphones, either built in to the laptop or using the microphone connection port (don't know if there is a real name for that...). I have installed Alsa mixer a while back and un-muted the "mic" and "beep"(just because I could). However even with these changes no sounds seem to be registered. I have tried using voice recorder programs, and none pick up on any of the mics.

As such, I would highly appreciate any help that can be given.

Also, I had been using Ubuntu 10.04 previously and currently 10.10, if ever this information is of use.

Many thanks;
