built in microphone not recognized

Asked by Maria Ferrara on 2012-05-07

Dears
I have installed ubuntu on this ASUS Eee laptop and it seems that the built in microphone while working on Windows XP is not actually recognized on this Linux flavour. Please find at this link the information regarding my Alsa configuration:

http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=61e14271906385d56cce52a1a6f5d4ccaa1fabe0

Of course, I just need the built in microphone to work for Skype.
Thanks for your kind help!

Dear Andrew,
I have tried the sequence you mentioned: I have added 'options snd-hda-intel model=auto enable=yes' to the file alsa-base.conf and rebooted as suggested. Maybe I have missed a step?
No progress, unfortunately: mic doesn't work.
Please find here the updated structure of my software: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=4403a7f92d285ef19e27e6c7063107c039074b07
Thanks for your assistance.
Miry

One of the problems here is that you are mixing TWO different model options at the same time in your /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

You can only use and test ONE model option at a time in that configuration file.

So either test model option auto or model option basic, but not both.

Please reboot and retest the microphone after each change to the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file.

Here is the most recent Terminal output that you sent us and that looks problematic to me:

snd-hda-intel: model=auto enable=yes
snd-atiixp-modem: index=-2
snd-intel8x0m: index=-2
snd-via82xx-modem: index=-2
snd-usb-audio: index=-2
snd-usb-caiaq: index=-2
snd-usb-ua101: index=-2
snd-usb-us122l: index=-2
snd-usb-usx2y: index=-2
snd-cmipci: mpu_port=0x330 fm_port=0x388
snd-pcsp: index=-2
snd-usb-audio: index=-2
snd-hda-intel: model=basic

And here are more model options to test on your Realtek ALC269 audio chipset:

ALC269

  basic Basic preset
  quanta Quanta FL1
  laptop-amic Laptops with analog-mic input
  laptop-dmic Laptops with digital-mic input
  fujitsu FSC Amilo
  lifebook Fujitsu Lifebook S6420
  auto auto-config reading BIOS (default)

i have a asus 1000h here and in ubuntu 12.04 the speakers and mic worked out of the box, though i couldn't select the mic level.
after putting the line below in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf everything works as expected!

options snd-hda-intel model=laptop-amic enable=yes

hope this works for you too

Dear Gourgi,

I hope you are well.

Thank you very much for your help and support, I really appreciate it.
Unfortunately this tip hasn't worked for me.
My internal mic is still not recognize by Ubuntu.
Any further advice will be welcomed.

Many thanks and regards,
Maria
