I've got a handy new Lenovo G560 running with OpenSUSE 11.3 64-bit. After a normal out-of-the-box installation the laptop speakers failed to mute when I plugged in headphones and I was only able to regulate the sound for both the speakers and the headphones simultaneously. Then I installed a whole lot of ALSA stuff and my sound devices were recognized as "PulseAudio server (local)". Speakers muted when I plugged in headphones - a big yay.
Now, though, my microphone doesn't work any more. It worked before, I'd talked on Skype with it, but upon trying to make a call with Skype today I noticed that it didn't work any more. Sound's turned up in KMix, so everything should be okay - does anybody know how to get my microphone working again?
Recently purchased a Lenovo B40-70 Dec 15 Make and isntalled Debian Jessie as the only operating system. Everything seems to work fine except internal microphone.
I have entries under ports of pavucontrol - Internal Microphone - Microphone (unplugged)
I changed amplification levels of left and right channels (as some suggested having right and left at same level cancel each other thus producing no audio). I've added entries such as Code: Select alloptions snd-hda-intel model=laptop to non existing alsa-base.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/. - No effect
Haven't seen Lenovo internal microphone problems offlate in forums or QA Boards, so asking it here again.
Also, I'm planning to buy a USB microphone : [URL].....
Will this work out of the box to make skype calls ?
I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on an Lenovo G560 laptop with Intel P6100. Everything seems to work fine except for the graphics. The screen goes blank when I enter startx from the console.
lspci shows the following for the graphics card : 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) In xorg.conf, I've tried drivers 'vesa' which gave me low resolution, and also 'intel' which blanked the screen again. How do I configure this graphics card ? Has anyone else faced similar issues when installing Ubuntu on this graphics card?
trying to use the internal mic for skype, with no such luck. its an HP Pavilion dv-XXXX (<<i want to say 5000 or 6000, but it isnt in front of me ATM), restarting didnt help, and everything is updated (Fedora 14).
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and everything went smooth. I was originally using Ubuntu 10.04 version installed via Wubu and decided it was time to make a true install of Ubuntu and decided to use 10.10.
I installed Skype and tried to have a phone convo, but the Microphone wasn't working. I tried to use yfrog.com to record a video from my webcam and the video worked fine, but no audio. I also tried the pre-installed sound recorder to record my voice but that also failed.
I'm making some tests with the internal microphone and I've managed to record sounds but the results have a very low volume. I mean, I have to put the input volume to the max and I still get a pretty bad result. I've checked too the input volume in the alsamixer but no way, can't get better results.
I just installed ubuntu 10.10 about 10 days ago, an experience that has been both amazing because its really hard for me to go back to windows already, and frustrating because I'm having a little issue: my internal microphone is not working.here is some relevant info:I had alsa 1.0.23 and decided to upgrade thinking it would solve my problems so I ran the script to install 1.0.24, and for a day or two I lost my sound, without getting back my mic, and just like that the sound came back.I read a lot of posts out there, and ,ade sure I unmuted my mic in alsa soundmixer and pulseaudio.
I have a Sony Vaio VPCZ128. It has a NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M GPU with CUDA Technology (SPEED MODE) and Intel HD Graphics (STAMINA MODE) (switchable). The Processor is an Intel Core i7-620M with 2.66 GHz and the Chipset from Intel HM57 Express chipset.
Finally I successfully installed Ubuntu 10.10 (mainly following the advice on [URL] and using his kernel). Every thing is working fine including sound (still a few minor problems with backlight and Fn F5/F6). But I still desperately try to get the internal microphone running.
I'm using a lenovo t530 laptop with debian testing. my suspend button combination (fn / f4) suddenly stopped working, from recent updates? How to get a terminal readout from what's happening when i push these buttons.
I'm running 9.10 and I've being using skype for months with no issues, but today my microphone isn't working. I've tested the physical microphone on another machine and it works fine. I've tried skype, sound recorder and neither gets any input. I also have webcam and the microphone on that isn't working either.
I'm running Xubuntu 10.10 on an ASUS Eee 1215T; the sound hardware on the system is a Realtek ALC259, and there's also sound output through HDMI with an ATI RS690/780 HDMI chip (both according to alsamixer). I was recently fiddling with the sound settings to try to get sound output through the HDMI port. I was successful in that, but I can no longer record sound using the built-in microphone. I'm pretty sure this is something I messed up, since sound recording worked correctly when I first installed Xubuntu, but I'm not sure what I need to do to fix it. I've tried all the promising-looking settings in gnome-volume-control and xfce4-mixer to no avail, and alsamixer also shows everything, both playback and capture, at 100% volume and un-muted; alsamixer also shows that the capture is turned on. I only used these tools (gnome-volume-control, xfce4-mixer, and alsamixer) to get the HDMI output working.
The problem i'm having is that my microphone stopped working after the upgrade to 10.10. Ubuntu doesn't seen any sort of input device any more, no line-in , no mic ( front as back ).Own on to the specs of my machine:It has a realtek ALC861-VD audio chip.2 mic jacks, 1 line-in , 2 out (front and back) and a coaxial port thing .The os is a upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10 and everything except this and my tv card sound works.I have pulse audio tools and alsa mixer ( although it broke during upgrade ) installed.alsa info is available upon request, so is any other info may you need it.
Just bought a laptop Packard Bell Easynote TJ61 with an internal sound card Conexant CX20561 (Hermosa) and successfully installed Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit. Only problem was that the microphone (internal and external) was not working in all applications (soundrecorder, audacity, skype etc). Output audio (eg- Rythmbox) worked fine with ALSA and PulseAudio.
Tried a LOT of stuff, but the decisive move was to add: options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 model=laptop to the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and reboot.
I've been running Ubuntu on my Dell Studio 1749 laptop since I got it, around 8 months ago.I recently upgraded to Maverick 10.10 64-bit, reformatting and partitioning my hard drive in the process (got rid of windows since I never use it) and it was working perfectly until last Wednesday (22.4.2011). On Wednesday I unplugged my usb headset while in a Skype call to switch to the internal speakers and my computer freaked out, black-screened, and froze. When I rebooted, the internal speakers had stopped working completely, even though the sound works perfectly on both sets of headphones I have.
I've tried most of the fixes that have been presented in other threads and none of them are working, including rebooting the laptop with the headset in. I've tried that with both of my usb headsets, even though I don�t like using the one that it froze on for the exact reason that any time I have audio playing with that headset and it gets unplugged, it black-screens and freezes my laptop. Actually audio doesn�t even have to be playing, sometimes unplugging it even with nothing playing still freezes my laptop. It does it once in a while with my other usb headset, as well, but not every time or anything close to that often.One thread suggested that modifying /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf by appending the following line to the file would work:
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6
But that did nothing at all. Someone else said that they saved a copy of alsa-base.conf and replaced the whole thing with that line, so I did that, with no change. Then I purged alsamixer using
sudo apt-get purge alsa-base
sudo apt-get purge alsa-utils
Then I rebooted, and reinstalled them, which did not fix the issue. However, it did replace the alsa-base.conf file that I modified which shows me that it actually did purge it. (I was an idiot the first time I tried to purge it and only purged and reinstalled alsa-utils..xD So the file did not get replaced, which was when I realised my mistake) I have NOT modified the new file, although I did copy the contents to a text file in case I need to try that fix again.I should also mention that the speakers do work when first booting up Ubuntu to the log-in screen, both with and without headphones I ran the alsamixer diagnostic at the beginning of all this, here's the link: [URL] And then ran it again after purging and reinstalling alsamixer, here's the new link: [URL] I have tried messing with the settings, disabling the headset, setting the input and output manually to internal speakers while the headset is still plugged in, making sure with GNOME alsa-mixer that the speakers are not muted, rebooting with the headsets in and then unplugging them.
When I started using Slackware I've been using USB headset. Everything ran perfectly fine. They got recognized, I could use all of it's functions and so on. Unfortunately volume control on them stopped working so I had to service them, and like in every third world country, yay I need to wait minimum three weeks just so they can press a button and say "Yup, they don't work".
I bought normal headset to use them while other one is getting fixed, and didn't expect any problems with them considering they are "old" technology, normal audio input and output.
Now problem is following, sound works fine but microphone doesn't. Once I managed to "fix" it by switching audio input from mic to something else and then back to mic, now even that doesn't work. Another... "problem" is if I leave my USB webcam plugged in while booting computer, there is no sound at all, ether on line ones or USB ones but I can easily solve that problem by unplugging webcam, rebooting and plugging it back in later.
Now everything ran fine until my computer shutdown while I was sleeping. Don't know why, but it started happening recently, don't see anything smart in logs so I assume its... something, read it could be cache, HDD, temperature and so on but since logs don't write down anything smart... will deal with it some other time.
When I talk I can actually hear myself on the headset, which probably means that they work. If I put mic boost all the way up, I can hear myself perfectly clear, but somehow... seems that that information just doesn't get to Slackware, well it gets somewhat considering that it reacts to me adjusting mic boost on KMix, but everything else... no.
Arecord doesn't record anything, TS register as microphone isn't plugged in at all, skype doesn't get any input ether.
Everything was working perfectly until i changed the internal ip of my router from 192.168.1 to 192.168.192 and now virtual hosting no longer works. As far as I can tell everything is setup correctly. I made no changes to the configuration files. Vhosts just literally stopped working. I've tried clearing dns cache not sure what to do at this point. I have tried to a2dissite and then a2ensite and reload the configurations but it literally just seems like apache is not looking for the vhosts in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled even though my apache2.conf still includes them
#Include the virtual host configurations: Include sites-enabled/ From the apache error log: [Sun Apr 03 16:41:50 2011] [error] [client 22.214.171.124] script '/var/www/index.php' not found or unable to stat
It looks like it's just not trying to use the vhost document root because when i go to blah.endofinternet.org it just takes me to the default site.
The mic on my laptop (lenovo g555, Ubuntu 11.04) doesn't work. No matter what application I'm using, it won't register. It worked just fine when I had windows installed. I've checked my sound preferences, and my input isn't muted, and no matter what volume I put the input at, it won't pick anything up.
I have installed opensuse 11.4 in my lenovo ideapad G460. But, I am not being able to make the inbuilt microphone work. It does not record anything and also does not work in skype. I am not that expert with linux. I looked at different posts in this forum regarding microphone detection problem, bit could not follow. How to setting up my inbuilt microphone?
Graphics annoyances. I'm having a few graphics problems, here's a quick screen shot: [URL]... Notice the white and red lines at the top of the screen. They seem to go away when I have another window in use over that one. But as soon as I go back to the effected window, it returns to that weird state. Also notice to the left, the terminal at the top and the trash can at the bottom. There are yellow lines on them. I figure that's not normal as well. I managed to fix the problem by simply closing the Chrome app and restarting it. But I assume the problem will arise again some time.
I also notice that a lot of words on my screen are cluttered with strange lines, especially the letters "r", "a", and "i". Here is a good screenshot: [URL]... Here is one last screenshot of the display bars where I'm uploading the pics to, notice how the output area for the URL to the pic is all jacked up: [URL]... Internal microphone. I have an HP DV7 laptop and I can't get the internal microphone to work.
On my white MacBook2,1 , the Internal Audio Analog Stereo device does work, and, in the "Sound Preferences", it shows up on the Output Tab. The MacBook2,1 has an internal microphone. In the "Sound Preferences", however, no device shows up on the Input Tab where it tells to "Choose a device for sound input", neither can I check or uncheck the Mute checkbox, nor can I slide the volume control bar. In sum, the internal Mic does not yet work. I need the Microphone for Skype etc.
Sound was said to work out-of-the-box already in Karmic Koala, but it didn't. Somewhere, I was then recommended to update to Lucid Lynx, which I did. On the page [URL].. it is, again, promised that the Sound will work out-of-the-box. It still doesn't. What shall I do? Boot Mac OSX, or get the Mic working? Here is what I have done sofar:
I tried to install Debian 8.1 on Lenovo Edge 125, but on stage ''detecting network hardware' of install process my laptop stopped and froze, so I don't know what to do. (Previously I've installed Debian 6 or 7 on this laptop and every thing was OK).
I am really struggling to get my the internal microphone on my iMac to function. I was able to get the sound working by installing ALSA Mixer and appending the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file with [options snd-hda-intel model="imac24"]. Input is not muted. That file is attached.
My gnome-volume-control recognizes an 'Internal Audio Analog Stereo' device, but it picks up no sound. Here's the chip information: Realtek ALC889A.
