Hi Michael,

For the microphone left-click the speaker icon at the top right of the screen and choose Sound Preferences. Click the Input tab. Increase the Input Volume to about 100% and change the Connector to either:

Microphone 2 = Microphone Jack
Microphone 3 = Internal Mic

Test with Sound Recorder or Skype.

Thank you!

The microphone works.

This is one of the reasons I decided to go with Ubuntu.
