Inbuilt Microphone doesn't work On ubuntu but does on Win7


had a compaq presario cq61 hanging around. I realised it had an inbuilt mic, I was using it for windows 7 but being a Microsoft hater like I am, Went back to ubuntu. I found out that my inbuilt microphone wouldn't work any more On 10.10 I've Unmuted it from The sound options but Its still not picking up anything, but it used to work fine on windows 7. Any ideas? thanks.

Probably just unsupported hardware. You can try a USB mic-- they're fairly cheap, and mine works.
