There is a known issue with the built-in digital microphone on the
Inspiron 1420. *Could* apply to the 1520 as well.

Work is in progress to have it fixed.

Hi all,

I'm quite satisfied by my ubuntu install and by my new Inspiron 1520.

I can use everything, including bluetooth, wifi, ethernet, audio, fn
keys, ... The only thing that seems to be missing is the built-in
microphone (I suppose it's placed in the little holes near the webcam).

Do anyone know how to make it work?
I tried to fiddle with various mixer settings, but with no luck. I seem
to have read something about microphone not working properly, but I
can't seem to return to that information.

Any help is appreciated...

Thanks!
