My microphone is not being recognized by Ubuntu. If I try to record something, its just random noise. Microphone worked nicely with good quality audio in Windows on the same computer. doesn't even recognize input from mic of headphones.

Windows used Intel Microphone Array for sound input.

In Ubuntu, Device for sound input shows:Internal Microphone- Built-in Audio

Devices shown by sudo lshw -class multimedia are:
