I can't get my Internal mic working by default. Only way how to get it work is open pavucontrol and choose - Microphone (Unplugged), only then it records sound from my Internal Mic.

This C720 is for my GF, and I don't think she will appreciate doing all this staff over and over agian in order to skype someone. I mean to Open terminal CTRL+ALT+T - pavucontrol - Go to Input devices and select Microphone (Unplugged).. all this just to Skype. Is there more rational solution ? I tried everything from This post


In terminal run:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Add these two lines to the end of alsa-base.conf :

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel

options snd-hda-intel model=auto

Save and reboot.

Thanks in advance. Valdis


try adding this to your alsa conf file instead:

options snd-hda-intel model=,alc283-chrome
