Im SO HAPPY I found this thread!! I am having the same issue with My computer. I thought it was just me
I have found that the internal mic issue was solved with the 2.3.36 kernel. Also I need access to cuda 3.2 for a project.
Sony Vaio VPCF1190x
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 330M] (rev a2)
I hope this may be resolved in the next revision
