My inbuilt Mic doesn't work

Hello everyone,

I recently installed skype on my rhel 6.0, 64 bit. But the problem is, my mic doesn't work. The sound comes out through the speakers of my Toshiba laptop even though my external mic is plugged into the mic ports. I can hear the other end (from the computer's speakers not from the head set of the mic) but the other end can't hear me. I went to system preference, sound, input and nothing is muted and when i talk through the mic the input level bar doesn't move. I typed arecord --list-devices and lsusb and i got the following results. Can anyone tells me what to do to get my mic works? Note that i use windows 7 on the othe partition and the mic just works fine. I searched the internet and i'm confused.Thank you.

Don't post the same question multiple times, in different forums. This is the same thing you asked here:
