Microphone not working
I have just got a new Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M 3438G.
I have managed to install Suse 10.0 (dual boot with WindowsXP) on it with most things now working. However I cannot get either of the microphones to work (built in or external mic through the input jack). Sound output works fine but just not the mic inputs. This is really annoying as I use VoIP a lot and without it I will end up having to switch back to Windows (not what I want). By the way the mic works fine on Windows XP.
Spec of my machine is:
Pentium M 760 2Ghz
Sound card: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
Here is the output from lspci:

I have also adjusted the volumes (both input and output) as well as changing the input sources all to no avail.
I have tried using the drivers that come with Suse Linux 10.0 as well as downloading those from Realtek (for the ALC880(D)) all produce the sam result.
Does anybody have any ideas as to what the problem may be?
Thanks in advance.
Re: Microphone not working
One thing that worries me a bit, is this bit from amixer:
have any of you found the solution since then? I have the same promblem with a Fujitsu Amilo 1450G.
I have the exact same problem, I run slackware12 on HP 530, Microphone works fine in Windows.
Same problem here... Running Slackware 12 on an ASUS P5V800 board.
Soundcard is on-board, AD1986A.
Sound works fine, only problem is the microphone.
Tried arecord / aplay and it just records noise...
Issue resolved for HP 530
Apparantly the ALSA developers fixed the problem in the latest driver's snapshot. You can download it from here:
The issue is fixed for the HP 530 model for sure, because that's what I use and it works like a charm. I hope it works on other machines too. Here's the steps I followed in order to compile it:
Did the Above post help?
Hey all, I know this is an old thread, but as I am having the same problem, I was wondering if the above post's alsa snapshot fixed the problem...
I'm gonna try it at home, anyway, but curiosity got the better of me...
I tried the latest version of the above snapshot as soon as I got home, and found no change in my problem...
As above, the main problem I'm having is being unable to input any sound to the system, while the sound output works fine, both with the integrated speakers and the line out connections.
There is an integrated microphone, and I have a dynamic microphone with a 1/4" jack, with a 1/4" to 1/8" converter. I've also borrowed a standard computer microphone from a friend, in case the dynamic microphone isn't working, but i think it is a driver issue.
I'm running Slackware 12.2 on a Dell XPS M1530, with what I believe is an Intel HDA Integrated Soundcard. I mostly use the CLI, but when I do use a GUI I use KDE 4. The outputs for lspci, lsusb, and amixer are below. Any Help would be much appreciated! =)
How to make microphone work!
The only solution to make microphone work is to install linux-backports-modules-alsa-generic...
Just go to:
Menu / System / Administration / Synaptic Package Manager
And search and mark for installation:
tip: if you have multiple versions click on the first and read the description which should inform what name to install...
If after the reboot and mic mute is off, still does not work, just go to terminal and type:
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
and add or change the following:
options snd-hda-intel model=auto enable=yes
Then Ctrl+X, type Y to write and exit, reboot and mic will work.
Bye and have lots of fun with Ubuntu (the best).
