When I use alsamixer to turn "mux" all the way up and have my headphones plugged into the microphone jack (don't have an external mic... ) in the front of the computer, I am able to record things but the volume is greatly muted. Perhaps the external jack is set to default for the microphone instead of using the internal mic?
I also have the output for alsa-info.sh if you want it - this was mentioned in the alsa configuration file (/usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/ALSA-Configuration.txt). Info about alsa-info.sh here.
I have a Gateway NV52 with an internal microphone and internal webcam. On Windows, both work fine, but on Ubuntu I can only get the webcam to work. I never used one on Ubuntu (using Karmic Koala 64 bit) before, so I may be overlooking something.
Code: 01:05.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RS780 Azalia controller
I have been going crazy with this maybe someone can help me out. I realized that in 10.04 my internal mic on my Asus G51VX does not work.
I have already upgraded my ALSA Drivers using the latest 1.0.23, and in alsamixer it shows the iMic and Capture devices correctly, however in sound recorder and in Skype I get nothing but a low hissing sound. I believe this is a pulse audio problem and not ALSA since I didn't have a problem in Kubuntu 9.04 using ALSA which I had previously to this.
In sound config pulseaudio shows that there is only one input and one output device which I figure should read 2 input devices since there is also a mic jack on the laptop. Either way it is really annoying not to have use of the Mic.
Device is INTEL HD AUDIO ALC663 Simple mixer control 'i-Mic',0 Capabilities: pvolume pswitch penum Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right Limits: Playback 0 - 31 Mono: Front Left: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [off] Front Right: Playback 31 [100%] [12.00dB] [off]
When I turn the i-Mic on I can hear the echo of myself coming out the internal speakers but it still won't record anything even with the Capture control on and at full volume.
I've spent the last couple hours trying to figure out how to get my SoundBlaster XFi card working, but somehow in the process seem to have now also broken my on-board sound which when I first installed did work. I have no idea how as I hardly touched anything.Both cards are recognized in Sound preferences, sound is not muted there nor in Alsamixer. But neither produce any sound at all now.
Searching around the forums it seems that as of now my XFi should, kind of, work out of the box, but I've had no such luck.I'd really like any advice possible on getting my XFi with headphones to work in 10.04, but if this can't be done I'd atleast like to find a way to fully reset my sound setting so my on-board will work without having to wipe this partition and reinstall - there Must be an easier solution than that.
My Toshiba Satellite L305D is running Ubuntu 10.10. The internal microphone doesn't work - if I try to record something, I just hear some clicks. According to the terminal, my audio device is: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
When I click open alsamixer, the boxes for Front Mic, Mic Boost and Beep are empty. When I go to Preferences => Sound => Hardware I get a choice of Analogue Stereo input, output and duplex - as well as off. I go for duplex. When I go to sound => input, the microphone mute box in unchecked and the single volume bar is at a maximum. There are no choices - the one choice, Internal Audio Analog Stereo, is checked. As it's only once choice, it can't be unchecked.
yesterday i was on videos, and i had headphones plugged into the headphone socket on my laptop.i unplugged them a few times because they were needed elsewhere, but on the last time i unplugged them, the sound didn't return to the internal speakers. i plugged the headphones back in, and there was sound out of the headphones, but not speakers. i rebooted the laptop, still to find sound only out of the headphones. i then was very bad, and booted into wingdoze, and still sound only out of the headphones. i've tried doing the muting channels in alsa-mixer as well. muting didn't work. i've also tried cleaning the headphone socket with ispopropyl alcohol too. and removing the bios battery and battery and ac adaptor... just incase it will do a reset of some description. no. still nothing.
edit: the "mute" media button light appears to be lit, however pressing it only feeds a software into the computer, and doesn't turn the light off. i'll try playing around a bit more. edit: i just discovered that if you hold down the m key on alsamixer to mute/unmute the "external amplifier" channel, the light flashes! this is beginning to look promising. edit: if i unmute the external amplifier before i log out, it stays unmuted until i log back in again. what can i do to stop it from muting as soon as i log back in again?
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.
Just curious if someone could help me with my issue, I've noticed that my internal mic doesn't work, and when I plug in headphones it stops the use of the speakers but I hear nothing through the headphones. I'm running openSUSE 11.3 and have had almost no major problems until this. I've searched around and asked a couple friends and have made absolutely no progress.
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.
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.
FTP is not working through a gateway and I think I found that I need to modprobe ip_masq_ftp. However, when I do try to load ip_masq_ftp I get the error: FATAL: Module ip_masq_ftp.o not found.My question is: how do I get ip_masq_ftp?More questions: Do I have to build a new kernel? If I do need to build a new kernel do I just include the ip_masq_ftp module or are there other modules that I need?
My problem is i use a command " route add -net to add a route oand gate way, how do i remove the route addid if it is incorrect but also my pc's use a standard static ip 192.168.1.X but my gateway is as a given 196.215.X.X if i add this gatway there is no internet but the same gateway is used on windows pc's
I have a network gateway system which runs redhat 7 (2.2.16) Firewall running is ipchains Internal network is eth0 192.168.5.1 External network is eth1 126.96.36.199 (example add)
My problem when I change the static address of the external network from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 I am not able to connect to internet. From my preliminary investigation ip is not binded to network card., but I am not sure, is there a way to check binding accurately Below is the ifcfg-eth1 file contents
I'm not able to get the Desktop Effects/3D graphics to work on a Gateway laptop. I suspect that I'm not using the correct nvidia drivers but I don't know what drivers I need for my system.I followed the instructions from this link with no luck.
Some system info: # uname -rs Linux 220.127.116.11-74.fc14.x86_64
i did install opensuse and everything ok; i did configure it to be the server and gateway for a little office network Everything seems to be ok most of the time but sometimes (usually between 5 and 7 pm each day) internet stops working and there is no way to let it start again. So i turn off the suse, switch all cables to the old fedora server, just turn it on fedora and internet works. Turn off fedora, connect suse, let it start and everythng ok...it happens all the times
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 have installed Ubuntu 10.10. everything is ok except with internal speaker in my HP Compaq dc7900 Convertible Minitower PC. audio is coming through headset but not through internal speaker. what might have gone wrong with my system. but it is working with windows 7 ultimate. i'm using dual boot. i have installed the same ubuntu 10.10 64 bit in my laptop DELL Inspiron N4010, with this everything is fine. but i have problem with hp desktop internal speaker. what should i do?
I have observed one thing that in SYSTEM >SOUND > OUTPUT Connector has only two options 1. Analog Headphones 2. Analog output.but in my DELL Inspiron N4010 one more option is there "Analog Speakers".
After I put my laptop for a system update, some of it [sounds] works selectively in my browser when I am watching ..... but when I am playing some musics on my desktop, there's no any sounds coming out. Then I noticed that my Output is still in 100% but 0.00db and a Dummy Output.
I already tried some steps I saw in some threads that has the same problem too but it became worse, I no more [completely] sounds anymore.
The internal microphone of my laptop Thinkpad T400 does not work after the new installation of fedora 15. I was trying to use it in SKYPE and could not get any sound recorded at all. However, when I tried arecord, sound is recorded, but is extremely low and not clear with lots of noise.The sound control seems to be different from before. Now available settings are
None Analog Stereo Input Digital Stereo Duplex (IEC958)
And the 'Input' page seems not bad because I can drag the Input volume. However, the 'Input level' is empty, or only 1 bar even I drag the 'Input volume' to maximum.Analog Stereo Output and Analog Stereo Duplex (the one I am using) are the two give me output sound. But none seem to work with my internal mic. I haven't tried an external mic, though, because I do not have one.There seems to be no more "advanced volume control" that I used in Fedora 12. Also, there seems to be no more ALSA devices or PulseAlsa devices?
'#arecord -l' list my device as
Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: CONEXANT Analog [CONEXANT Analog].
how to solve this. For example, is there a way to get those ALSA settings back (well, I do not really understand what ALSA is and how it works but it did work when I had Fedora 12)? I do have a lot of packages named 'alsa*' installed.
We have a target board with intel atom processor(COM). OS : Ubuntu 9.04 But I am not able to hear the Internal speaker sound. ->pcspkr driver is present. ->Different tests were conducted inclding echo -e "a" , console-beep package ,writing to the port etc. ->Sound is not heard during system startup also.
