Could you post a screen shot of alsamixer? One for playback, and one for capture (use the tab key to switch modes). It really sounds like you have the wrong device selected for capture. Also, rerun the alsa-info.sh script with this driver. First, reload the driver without any "model=" parameters, as the driver should pick up your system. The mic plug on your system should be pink on the back and on the front panel. The front panel mic should be selected with Front Mic in alsamixer, the back one is just Mic. To change the capture device, use the right & left arrow keys to move to the correct device and press space.

Ok I have lost the sound capture on my system and I don't know how to get it back when I go to the sound recorder and try to start it I get this message. Your audio capture settings are invalid. Please correct them in the Multimedia settings.

When I go to the system/preference/sounds. I test each setting and they are all OK except sound capture and this is the message that I get when I hit the test button. gconfaudiosrc ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink profile=chat: Could not open resource for writing.

My system info is here [URL="http://pastebin.ca/542981"]

I hope someone can help me with this.

ronbrooks: Could you please repost this as a new thread? I don't want to sound mean, but your system isn't really related to this thread, as you have a completely different sound architecture.

Before you repost or respond, alsa 1.0.14 final was released yesterday. Please download, build, and install it from http://alsa-project.org.

Sorry.

was directed towards the person that started this thread. Since I do not work on ac'97 (which you have), I can't help you. Continuing to post to this thread doesn't help the person that needed the help, as their system is going to be a lot different.

I'm sorry, but I just can't help you. If I could, I would still take it to a different thread, so as not to mix the responses and confuse the original poster.

I downloaded these. I wasn't sure if I needed any others. Let me know if I do.

alsa-driver-1.0.14.tar.bz2
alsa-lib-1.0.14.tar.bz2
alsa-utils-1.0.14.tar.bz2

I ran ./configure, make, and make install on each of them and used the configure option ./configure --with-cards=hda-intel for the alsa-driver. Then I rebooted, so that the new alsa would be used, and it is. I can tell by reading the top of alsamixer. Next I loaded the module with this command.

Code:
sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel
I tried many different settings in alsamixer. I tested them with Skype. Some settings made the static louder or go away. The other person on Skype could hear himself echo using a certain setting. Here are the screenshots that you wanted. I took one for each: all, playback, and capture.

The mic is working now. I had to buy a new mic. The one I had was bad. It was new, so I didn't suspect it. I got a new sound card that in the mail today that I ordered. I thought I was going to get the mic working with it, but I didn't need it. Thanks for your time and help.

mic problem with same sound card

can I jump in here as well

I also have Realtek ALC883, output is OK but cannot get mic working in skype or sound recorder

I have been trying to follow the info here, have just dowloaded and built latest alsa version but still no working mic

info after build and re-boot:

from dmesg:
$ dmesg|grep hda
[ 4.969366] ide0: BM-DMA at 0xff00-0xff07, BIOS settings: hdaio, hdbMA
[ 15.386491] hda_codec: Unknown model for ALC883, trying auto-probe from BIOS...
[ 39.075602] hda-intel: Invalid position buffer, using LPIB read method instead.

from lspci
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SB450 HDA Audio (rev 01)

output from alsa-info.sh
http://pastebin.ca/555107

also when building utils got error in make:
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/kelly/alsa14/alsa-utils-1.0.14/alsaconf/po'

I don't have enough information on your system, other than it appears to be a HP system. There are several different models that the driver supports:

3stack-dig 3-jack with SPDIF I/O
6stack-dig 6-jack digital with SPDIF I/O
3stack-6ch 3-jack 6-channel
3stack-6ch-dig 3-jack 6-channel with SPDIF I/O
6stack-dig-demo 6-jack digital for Intel demo board
acer Acer laptops (Travelmate 3012WTMi, Aspire 5600, etc)
medion Medion Laptops
targa-dig Targa/MSI
targa-2ch-dig Targs/MSI with 2-channel
laptop-eapd 3-jack with SPDIF I/O and EAPD (Clevo M540JE, M550JE)

I would suggest trying to load the driver with "modprobe snd-hda-intel model=<model>" where <model> is one of the above types. If you find one that works for all your settings, then it's an easy matter to get your system added. Otherwise, a lot more work will need to go into adding your system. In any case, support can be added for the next release of alsa.

it is a HP Pavillion a1589L desktop

plugs at the back include mic, line in, out (headphones), side, rear and c/sub and digital in and out, at the front is another line in, mic and headphones

hoping that this might thus be a "6-jack digital with SPDIF I/O" from your list I tried model=6stack-dig and the microphone now worked

I added a new line to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base:
options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-dig

and re-booted, tried skype test calls and recording with audacity and the microphone seems to work fine, headphones/stereo speaks work fine (as they did before)

I didn't try any of the other model= options and don't have a 5.1 speaker set to try

let me know if you need any other info for the update and I will try to provide it

and thank you very much for getting my mic working - your help is much appreciated!

regards,
kelly

If I decide to switch to 64 bit Ubuntu, can these same directions be used to get the mic working?

It did not work in 64 bit. Skype says problems with the sound device. Sound works, but I haven't been able to get the Mic working cause Skype wont even let me do calls. When I run Skype from a terminal, it gives this output. If its not possible, I may not use 64 bit Linux anymore.

If you are using a 32 bit version of Skype, you need the 32 bit ALSA libraries. The error indicates that it can't find libasound or a similar library in /usr/lib, which is the 32bit lib directory. To verify, type "ldd /usr/bin/skype", and it will list missing libraries.
