There's only one device to choose to configure under "system -> preferences -> sound -> hardware " :
Interal Audio
1 Output / 1 Input
Analog Stereo Duplex
in the option "Profile" in "Settings for the selected device:"
there are six choices to choose from with default as "Analog Stereo Duplex":
Off
Analog Stereo Input
Analog Stereo Output
Analog Stereo Duplex
Analog Stereo Duplex (IEC958)
Analog Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo Input

Thank you!

I've deleted the Windows XP files but the partition architecture is still there, I didn't do the formatting, because when I finish dual system boot, whenever I tried to boot Win XP, it crashed as a blue screen. So, I frown and delete it over a whim.

Now I only want to make Skype phone call to my family memebers in China, I'm South Korea for study. I'm an Ubuntu and Linux newie. Thank you for your help! The system didn't recognize the mic. That's the problem.

Some suggestions online doesn't work for my system. Like add a line "options snd-hda-intel model=ref" to the end of file "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf"

Hello dynamiclc,

please post the output of the commands:
Code:
lspci | grep -i audio
lsmod | grep snd
and please a screenshot of your alsamixer (on the commandline).
I'd recommend to post this issue in a new thread because it can't be seen from the thread-title what your problem is.

I've posted another thread, called "How to let Ubuntu recognize microphone?" in Hardware part of this forum.

But wait, ah, I've done it! there I can use my microphone now: after I installed the GNOME ALSA Mixer. Unmute the external mic. Everything seems so simple and intuitive and I just don't know I haven't installed the GNOME ALSA Mixer before. How silly of me.

Still what does the commands mean:
Code:
lspci | grep -i audio
lsmod | grep snd
Thank you, markus, very much!

I'm happy to read that its working now for you. The commands mean:
lspci gives a list of your hardware, this is piped with "|" to grep which selects all lines with the word audio and since we don't know, if there is "audio" or "Audio" the -i options tells grep to search caseindependent.
lsmod lists the modules which are loaded and we grep for snd.
