Hi chaseseith, Welcome to LQ. Please post the output from the following.

Code:
$ sudo lspci -v | grep -i audio
$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Good luck. ;-)

my output is as follows...


ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) (rev 40)


Codec: Realtek ALC270
Codec: LSI ID 1040



I am currently having problems with my internal microphone, and do not currently have the funds for an external. I am intending to utilize google voice again when my microphone is functioning again... If able to help, it would be very much appreciated.


Thank you,
Mr. Angel Colon

Let's also see which version you're running. Please post the result of the following.

Code:
$ cat /proc/asound/version
Good luck. ;-)

You might try adding some of the following options to your /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base file.

Code:
laptop-amic
laptop-dmic
auto
The options should be at the end of the file in the following format.

Code:
options snd-hda-intel model=OPTION
Good luck. ;-)

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:

linux-backports-modules-alsa-generic

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).
