View Full Version : [ubuntu] Microphone doesn't work

December 29th, 2012, 09:47 AM
I have a HP Pavilion dv4 Notebook. I have dual-boot of Win 7 and Ubuntu 12.10. My Built-in microphone seems to be working in windows OS but it doesn't work in Ubuntu.
In system settings > sound > input there are three options Microphone, Analog input/Line in and Analog input/Microphone.

I used an external microphone and tested in all three options.
Microphone - It recorded only buzz noise and hardly my voice
Analog input/Line - Nothing
Analog input/Microphone - It recorded my proper voice
