Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

First thing to say: I am not an expert on computer issues, I am just a regular user (a Windows former user just getting used to Ubuntu)

  • OS: Ubuntu 12.04
  • Computer: ASUS X201E-DH01
  • Soundcard: HDA Intel PCH

My internal microphone has very low sound and creates a noise that is giving me hard times on skype and hangout calls.

This computer has a combo mic/headphone jack and I am trying to use an iphone headset to improve my microphone sound, but my computer doesn't recognize the microphone on the headset, just the output.

I have been trying to find an answer for my question here 5 but nothing seems to work. Anyway when the instructions get too technical I am not able to follow them. Any ideas?

I want to thank you in advance
