If you have changed operating systems since it last worked you may need to go to Acer Emachines support site and download the microphone driver for that operating system? If you haven't changed operating systems, let us know what you may have added since it last worked? If you did change operating systems let us know which one you are running and I'll be glad to link you right to the page that has the driver you need if it's available?

- Try to use Microphone on another device and check is it working there? If No! Then replace the Microphone. If its working then update the drivers of your machine.
- Run Reginout scan and check is it your windows registry fine? After scanning if you found errors then fix it.

Hope it helps.

Drivers are not independent entities they are related to the the platform that you are using as in your case its Ubuntu if you change the platform you may require to have a separate set of audio drivers.Also in most of the cases there is no need to install teh drivers manually as the latest Operating Systems can detect and install them automatically for you but in case there is an issue the drivers installers are usually provided by the manufacturers but I suggest you download the latest from the manufacturer's website.

Music, movies, photos and more can be stored on the micro Secure Digital memory card on your Samsung Galaxy S phone.
To get all those goodies on the microsSD card you need to transfer them from your computer. Connecting your Galaxy S to your computer is done with the USB cable that was included with the phone and doubles as the charging cable when plugged into the outlet adapter that also came with the phone

Plug the large end of the micro USB cable into your computer and the small end into the USB port on the top of your Galaxy S phone.
Wait for your computer to recognize the phone.
Press the "Power" button on the top right side of your phone, briefly.
Unlock the phone by dragging the padlock icon to the top of the screen.
Drag the notification pane down by touching the top of the screen and dragging your finger to the bottom.
Touch the "USB Connected" notification and then press the "Mount" button.
Your phone's microSD card will appear to your computer like an external drive.
Click on the "Start" button on your computer and then click on "Computer."
Double-click the drive icon that corresponds to your Galaxy S phone.
This will open a folder that shows the contents of your phone's microSD card.
You can copy files to and from the folder like you would any other folder on your computer.

Click the "USB Device" icon in the task tray of your computer.
Click "Eject USB Device."
Wait until you're done transferring files before ejecting the phone from the computer.

Unlock your phone and drag down the notification area.
Tap the "USB Connected" notification and press "Disconnect."
You can now safely unplug your phone.
