Mic and speakers not working Ubuntu 11.10

Asked by Don on 2012-02-08

Both used to work, then something happened. Now in sound, when I test front left, and front right speaker, neither works. When I check input, mic 1 is selected and the first box on the left is lit, and flashes, but when voice is input in order to move the meter, the meter does not move.
I have followed this page, and have the output: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure.

I'm trying to get the mic and speakers to work on test.
I'm trying to get mic to work in Skype.
When things were working, I was trying to get Google Voice/ talk to work in gmail for phone calls but would never work.
Interesting thing though, I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 sitting right next to this Presario and it works fine for everything.
I have an Inspiron 1200 on the other side of the room, and can't get mic to work on it either, and I have done the same thing to all three computers, and only the 1000 works.

But the output here is from the presario desktop.

Where do I go from here?

Try:

killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.pulse*

Wait a few seconds then try creating sounds. Try the microphone in sound recorder. Skype is a poor test app as VERY often it makes things appear to be faulty when in fact they are not.

This did not fix the problem.
In sound recorder, the meter at the bottom is about 3/8 of an inch long and does not move when I record, and never goes off.
I also went to system settings-sound, selected input,and the first box to the far left is lit intermittently. But the meter never moves when I speak into the mic. And I test front left front right speaker test in hardware tab, and that test does not work on either speaker.
I also rebooted the computer, and the Ubuntu sound plays at startup.

Thanks,

Don

OK OK OK DUH. I just realized what the big difference is with these computers.
The Presario desktop is Ubuntu 11.10 only.
The Dell 1200 Inspiron, is Ubuntu only.
The Dell Inspiron 1000 is dual boot. Windows XP, and Ubuntu 11.10, and everything works on this computer.
In my search for an answer to this problem, someone said to make sure that something was set in a Windows dual boot computer, on the windows side, to get the thing to work on the Ubuntu side. I don't remember what that something was.
Don't ask where I saw that, I looked in so many places to find an answer to this, that I don't know what forum I saw that in.
It seems like a problem to me, if stuff only works out of the box on a dual boot computer, but not with Ubuntu stand alone.

Also, at the top of this page there is a note with an ! in the box.
"Added link to bug #187222: “Wine amd64 has incorrect dependencies”.
At the risk of sounding STUPID, If this is the case, how do I fix it?
I'm new to Ubuntu, but can get around pretty good with accurate and clear directions.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask Don for more information if necessary.
