Unable to use my internal microphone

If I plug a outside one, it didn't work too.

Without any information, how do you expect us to help you? You need to tell us the type of hardware that you have, what kind of desktop/laptop you are using, what distribution, and the steps you have taken so far to try to fix your problem. From there, we can then further assist you.

corp769 is correct. The more information we have, the easier it is for us to help you.

If this is in Slack, try running "alsaconf" in a terminal and check that the microphones are not muted.

In Scientific Linux, look for the Gnome volume control and do the same.
