Which GUI do you use? Check the sound preferences, make sure that the audio device is set as the mic (and not internal audio)...

Another thought: Is it integrated with the webcam, a seperate mic or part of the laptop?

-KDE gui
-the microphone is integrated, its on the bottom-front of the laptop, like under the mouse touch pad area.
its a Samsung r480-11

Neyzan, I dont know where to "set as the mic (and not internal audio)"

ok when i go into Sound and Video Configuration,

in the LEFT navigation pane, it sees Audio Output and Audio Capture.

Under Audio Capture there is Communication and Accessibility.

In the RIGHT side pane there is a list titled "Default Capture Device Preference" and there are 7 sound card icons(small images of a sound card) underneath.. next to each icon there is a description. Here is the list:

-Internal Audio Analog Stereo
-HDA Intel (ALC2969)
-HDA Intel, ALC2969 Analog (Direct hardware device without any conversions)
-HDA Intel, ALC2969 Analog (Hardware device with all software conversions)
-HDA Intel, ALC2969 Analog (Direct sample snooping device)
-(this line only has the icon but no description)
-Playback/recording through the PulseAudio sound server

on the bottom of the window it has a up and down arrow to be able to change the above list in the order you prefer. I am going to experiment in just a little bit...

thanks
