Hey there,

My internal microphone doesn't seem to work. How do I fix it? I use Helena.

Is your capture device listed by

Code: Select all
arecord -l


? If so, have you checked volume control to see that it's not muted, and amplified it enough (mine's real quiet by default)?

Unfortunately there are issues with the Poulsbo chipset but I don't know if that happens to sound as well
You have Intel HDA (Poulsbo) so I think the general solution for HDA may work
Solutions for sound

This topic contains links to all (?) the really good solutions for sound in Mint
If you have Intel HDA sound take a look here first
If you want more help please include lspci and which Mint you use
And don't forget to go through all your settings
Right click the speaker next to the clock and check settings as well as any other settings you may find and also open a terminal and start alsamixer from it
