Installed Ubuntu precise pangolin and everything is working fine except for my microphones (both internal and external). I have updated the drivers and installed alsa, to no avail. What to do?

Can you please add some hardware detail? –  Michele Sep 26 '12 at 15:48
    
make sure your microphone isn't muted.. I believe it is muted by default... –  TheX Sep 26 '12 at 16:26

When you say you installed alsa, do you mean you installed alsamixer? If not, install alsamixer, pull it up and check to make sure you microphones aren't muted.

$ sudo apt-get install alsamixer

Assuming alsamixer is ruled out, post up the output of:

$ arecord -l

I solved opening alsamixer, F4 to go to capture screen, that go to Input Source and changed from "Line" to "Front Mic". –  Pisu Jul 10 '13 at 9:46
