    No idea really, but does this help.

    You might post any relevant looking bits from the box.

    I'm just guessing wildly. Has it got permission to use the sound device? Does it belong to the right group perhaps? Can you find any referrence to it in the alsa /proc directories - see link in previous post?

    Try unplugging it, waiting half a minute, and plugging it back in, then:
    Code:
    $ dmesg|tail
    Try switching off any sound server you may have running. What's that command that tells you if something is using a device, 'fuser'?? $ alsa mixer and fiddle about with what is muted and so on. Have you got a usb-sound module installed?

    Tried to use terminal like you said, here's what happed

    peter@peter-laptop:~$ $ dmesg|tail
    bash: $: command not found

    It's a dell 1545 laptop no built in cam or Mic.
    Tried all the configs i could
    HDA Intel (Alsa mixer)
    IDT 92HD71B7X (OSS Mixer)
    Playback: HDA Intel - STAC9XX Analog (PulseAudio Mixer)
    Capture: Monitor of HDA Intel - STAC92XX Analog (Pulse Audio)
    Capture: HDA Intel - STAC9XX Analog (PulseAudio Mixer)
    even went into preferences tried to open all the recording and switches etc
    with making sure the Mic wasn't muted cuze it would every time i made changes.
    nothing works didn't see any option like a USB anything.

    "Try switching off any sound server you may have running. What's that command that tells you if something is using a device, 'fuser'?? $ alsa mixer and fiddle about with what is muted and so on. Have you got a usb-sound module installed? "

    Sounds a bit like Chinese to me, I'm new to Ubuntu and Linux,
    P.S.
    Thanks for replying to me

    Sorry about Chinese. If you're new you could have problems - sound is a bit tricky, at least it always is with me.

    Code:
    $ dmesg|tail
    The $ meant the prompt, what you put in is just the dmesg|tail bit. So unplug and replug camera and post the output like this: highlight the out put with click and drag; then
    Code:
    $ cat > dmesg.txt <hit the return key>
    <click middle button to paste the highlighted output>
    <return>
    <ctrl+d>
    Then post contents of dmesg.txt. (Sorry if over detailed). Having said that you could just post it directly, am being idiot as usual.

    Also post output of
    Code:
    $ lsmod|grep snd
    . And lsusb.

    Simplifies things to turn of any sound server. You would probably need to go to the 'Control Center' type thing, that's what it's called in KDE, and disable the sound thing in the sound section. That'd probably do it.

    Chances of me fixing this are pretty remote, but might get lucky.

    There does not seem to be a USB sound module loaded in the kernel, it's a USB device so might need one. Perhaps you could try 'snd_usb_audio', it might work.

    So:
    Code:
    $ modprobe snd_usb_audio
    
    (might be dashes not underscores) or better:
    
    $ modconf
    
    Then look through for a suitable looking usb sound driver.
    I've never used a webcam, it occurs to me that you don't really need to hear yourself out of the speakers. Could it be designed so that someone else on the network or internet can hear you out of their speakers? No idea myself.

    modconf is a little confusinfg to say the least looks like the usb drivers are working
