    ADI AD1986A no input on ubuntu10.10

    I have an ADI AD1986A audio chip. I'm running ubuntu10.10 on an asus p5gv-mx board. The sound outputs find but I can't get any input on the mic. hardware works in windows, just not ubuntu. I have checked the mic levels, and I have set it to highest setting, all i hear is static. I have also tried the sound recorder to see if that would init mic but nothing, just silence. I'm a total noob with linux so i'm not sure how to diagnose it or what to do about this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hello and Welcome.
    First of all, make sure your system is completely updated, including newer kernels if one is available. Can you open a terminal window and post the output of these commands please?

    This one tells us what hardware you have and the loaded modules/drivers.
    sudo lspci -knn
    this one tells us all modules/drivers currently loaded.
    sudo lsmod
    Also, try alsamixer command to make sure nothing is muted.
    Try the alsa-info command also, I think it's available in Ubuntu, if you get command not found, just skip this part.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
