When I first set up my Ubuntu machine, everything worked fine. But for
the last few months (I don't remember exactly how long), my mic has
refused to work. Nothing I use can pick up any signal from it. I've
tried all the mixers (alsamixer, kmix, the built in GNOME mixer), and
none of them show the mic as muted. Is there a way to reset ALSA's
volumes and other mixer settings to defaults? I can't seem to find
information about this online, and this lack of a fully working sound
system has me on the end of my rope.
Info: Ubuntu Breezy 5.10

I'm prepared to spend a good deal of time on this, but I don't know what
I need to do. If you need more information, let me know how to get it
and I'll be happy to share it.
