    Mic and Webcam not working on HP Compaq 6730b

    Hello everyone,

    I have various problems on my ubuntu 20.04 LTS 64bit installed on a notebook HP Compaq 6730b:

    1) internal mic not working
    2) external mic not working
    3) webcam not working

    I have a tried to mess around with alsamixer, but I got absolutely no sound from the microphone not matter what I do.

    I need your help, ubuntu forum community, to get those devices working (or at least the microphone), please.

    P.S.: the computer not have all the original hardware: it have 4gb of ram, an SSD and Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU P8600 CPU.

    I don't have an HP laptop, but I do have an HP all-in-one which I booted up with Xubuntu 20.04.3 from a USB stick.
    Using both lsusb and lspci, I could not see any indication of internal camera or microphone. Bigly mystery!
    I did get the camera to work using cheese. It doesn't come with the initial *buntu setup, but it can be installed.
    Using pavucontrol, you can check your input devices, hopefully, your internal microphone will show up there.
    Good luck.
    Cheers,

    I installed "pavucontrol" and try to bring to the maximum the audio levels and also try to change the "fallback" option, no results, the microphone looks like is dead.

    I forgot to specify, the microphone shows in the pavucontrol and on the audio section of the ubuntu settings (as "internal microphone-internal audio" then to "front microphone-internal audio")

    As for the webcam, I tryed to do an "sudo apt-get remove --purge cheese" and then install it again, but the webcam still not working.

    P.S.: "It doesn't come with the initial *buntu setup, but it can be installed." my ubuntu installation always had it included.

    Try booting to your install medium and then choose "Try Ubuntu" and see if they work.

    Thank you very much for the suggestion Autodave!

    I was searching for the option in my bios to enable the boot from the usb disk, when I found that webcam and microphone were disabled.

    After turning on the two devices, the ubuntu system recognized the microphone and the webcam correctly.

    I'm sorry to have wasted the time of him610 and everyone else, when the answer was next to me.

    P.s.: in the bios, to enable the microphone, you need to enable the webcam too. Turning on only the microphone and not the webcam result in the microphone not working.
