Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 10941
Microphone don't work on Acer Aspire 5720
Last modified: 2009-07-29 16:58:35 UTC
Latest working kernel version: 126.96.36.199
Earliest failing kernel version:
Distribution: Debian Lenny
Hardware Environment: ALC268 on Acer Aspire 5720
The Microphone don't work, but in the kernel version 188.8.131.52 work fine.
In the file sound/pci/hda/patch_realtek.c the value of "Internal Mic" on static struct hda_input_mux alc268_acer_capture_source, should be 0x1, as before in the 2.6.25.x kernel.
that work for my notebook.

Change value "Internal Mic" to 0x1
Takashi, there's a patch here.
Juan, please submit patches via email, not via bugzilla.
Documentation/SubmitChecklist has details.
Suitable addressees are:
Andrew Morton <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Takashi Iwai <email@example.com>
Then the pin mapping is different from other Acer laptops. Your patch could break other machines, so it can't be applied as is.
For further analysis, please run alsa-info.sh with --no-upload option and attach the generated file here. The script is found at

alsa-info for Acer Aspire 5720G
Today i update the kernel code to git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/nigelc/tuxonice-head.git and the internal Mic from my Acer Aspire 5720 don't work.
The solution in the patch http://bugzilla.kernel.org/attachment.cgi?id=16557 work for this model.
In this moment exist in code the quirk for the aspire 5720z on
SND_PCI_QUIRK(0x1025, 0x011e, "Acer Aspire 5720z", ALC268_ACER)
the problem is, the device code "0x011e", is the same for my acer (exist other way to select betwen the models? ).
I don't know if the internal mic works on 5720z model.
Hi, I have the same problem with my Toshiba Portege m750.
The kernel version is 2.6.30-gentoo-r1 but even with the 2.6.29 version I wasn't able to use internal microphone.
The only thing I know is that the codec is "Realtek ALC268".

A different machine, a different problem. Please don't mix up, but open another bug report.
AFAIK, the problem of Acer Aspire 5720 was already fixed in the recent kernel.
Let's close now.
