    Hey everyone,
    I've got a problem. My internal microphone picks up sounds, but not my voice. When I type, or click with the trackpad, or even just knock on the computer case, the microphone registers in the sound. But when I speak, I get nothing. No recording at all. This problem just started today.

    I've tested it in Photobooth, Skype, Audacity and Soundbooth, so I know it's not a problem with the settings of any program. The mic is selected and unmuted in the Sound prefpane. The volume slider is set all the way to the right. In Audio Midi Setup, the Built-in Input is set to 48000.0 Hz, 2ch-16bit, with the two volume sliders set all the way to the right. I have cleared the PRAM.

    I have no idea where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
