[ubuntu] No Microphone on Dell Mini 10

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I purchased the Dell Mini 10 which came pre-installed with Windows XP. I installed Ubuntu 9.10 as a dual boot system, and noticed immediatly that there was no sound. From the Ubuntu forums it was recommended to remove / purge 'Pulsuadio', which worked in getting the sound to work. But now I also noticed that the internal microphone is still not working. I've tried numerous combinations of settings with the Alsa mixer, using both Skype, and Audacity, but only get alot of static. After removing pulseaudio, there is no longer any access to the 'sound menu' u (Hardware)
