Mic Problem on Ubuntu 11.04

I am running Ubuntu 11.04 on my Hp G72 laptop with an internal mic. The recording sound quality is very very poor with a lot of white noise in the background. It is bad enough to prevent me from being able to use Skype at all because the receiver hardly hears anything. The microphone works just fine when I open up Windows XP. Since I am new to Ubuntu, I don't know if there are some kind of drivers or software that needs to be installed for it work properly. Any help is appreciated!
Thank you
