    Sony Vaio FE series built-in microphone does not work

    I just switched from Windows to Ubuntu because my laptop performs too slow on Windows. However, when I used Skype, I noticed that the built-in microphone did not work at all. Anyone know how to setup for it?

    Here is some information
    Code:
    lsmod | grep hda_intel
