I always loved using Ubuntu and enjoyed its open source service (though it is not as user friendly as Windows). At first I faced many conflicts which I managed to solve.
But now the problem is that my microphone does not give input sound to the system.
I have checked many of my settings including alsamixer and pulseaudio (they all were a bit confusing for me :o). Anyway my microphone does not have any problem, it is fine; and even are the jacks. So, as I connect my microphone to my PC it does not work, I tried using sound recorder to check it.
It does not work in any jack (front,rear). When I open the sound settings in the input tab everything seems fine. The mute checkbox is unchecked, output and input volume are maximum, the connector dropbox is change into front microphone from Analog (when the mic is connected to the front jack).
But there is no reading in the input level signal bar. And there is only one option in the "choose a device for sound output" box its is 'Internal Audio Analog Stereo'.
I am completely unfamiliar with this problem. Any help please.
Please I need your support to continue with, I am just a beginner.
Is there any issue with the sound card. My sound card is Realtalk VIAVT1708S codec...motherboard GIGABYTE
