I have recently bought an Asus Vivobook X202E, with touch screen and Windows 8. I have tried to adjust the sound systems as many answers on this site suggest, but it still doesn't work.

I think Asus X202E has it typical driver requirement or typical problem that can not be solved as the other notebook.

I had a problem with microphone in Ubuntu 14.04 LTE on my ASUS Vivobook X202E too.

Here where I found the solution:

What you need to do is:

  • run alsamixer in terminal
  • press in F4 in AlsaMixer to switch to Capture tab
  • using left/right arrows choose Mic Boost control
  • using q key set left part of Mic Boost bar to 100%, using c key set right part to 0
  • using up/down keys set Capture bar to 100 (both for R and L)

That's it.
