I had the microphone working just fine a week or so ago. Now it's dead. I had pulseaudio installed then. I just tried removing it and pavucontrol, but that didn't help. kmix tells me that I have no capture devices, which is also what pavucontrol tells me when it's installed. Communication Devices under Systems Settings / Multimedia lists just Pulseaudio Sound Server.
I'm somewhat doubtful that removing pulseaudio is really the answer, since it was installed when my mike was working.
It's maddeningly frustrating when things that were working stop working, most likely because of some update or other. I guess that keeping my system updated is the way to go, but sometimes the consequences are terrible.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 on an Asus K60IJ machine. Here's my sound hardware environment as shown by hwinfo:I don't know which update broke it, since there have been several in the last week or so. I haven't done anything requiring the microphone for that long.Code:Model: "Intel 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller" Vendor: pci 0x8086 "Intel Corporation" Device: pci 0x293e "82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller" SubVendor: pci 0x1111 "Santa Cruz Operation" SubDevice: pci 0x1043 Revision: 0x03 Driver: "HDA Intel" Driver Modules: "snd_hda_intel"
I see the problem both with Skype and audacity. I've tried the 4 possibilities under System Settoings/Multimedia/Phonon/Audio Capture/Communication, all of which have a hardware type of HDA Intel, VT 1708S Analog. None work.

my advice would be starting a new thread to get more attention.
include the information you provided in this thread.
but before you do that, run alsamixer in terminal, check your levels there.
you hwinfo states you have working modules, i have a gut feeling running alsa in terminal will reveal something.
edit< stretch the terminal window for all slider controls.
Can I record ( then mix) both mic and speaker in the mean time with pavucontrol
