I've got sound, but mic isn't detected

Post by red-e-made »

Can't really figure out what the problem is here. I have an HP dv6775 with an HDA Intel - ALC268 sound driver, and while sound works fine from the system, videos, music and apps, the microphone is simply not being detected at all.

This is kind of a pain for me as I'd love to start using Skype, so any and all ideas or suggestions are wholeheartedly welcome. Thanks in advance.

Well you say it yourself - HDA Intel
As you have Intel HDA sound it is very probable that the standard solution for all kinds of problems with HDA works
You change model to what ever you have or auto or some more exotic model like in this topic
You may have to try many different "models" to get it to work - brand or model ...
Note the link to a post in the Ubuntu forums for a list of "models"

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

same applies to me... but with HDA Nvidia...it is the only issue a have no been able to solve since I begun using Linux more than a year ago... most common explanation for this is that the mic is just not supported... Im sorry but Im not sold to that explanation :P
