Alienware m17x running Manjaro – Missing internal microphone port in pavucontrol solved.

I made a video earlier about setting your microphone settings for a user from IRC. Through the help of the people in the channel and his own smarts he was able to find a solution. Here is what resolved the issue:
He added a file with a name along the lines of internal-mic.conf to the /etc/modprobe.d/ directory, Then added the following information to the file:


#/etc/modprobe.d/internal-mic.conf

options snd-usb-audio index=-2
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel

#ref     Reference board
#no-jd   BIOS setup but without jack-detection
#intel   Intel DG45* mobos
#dell-m6-amic   Dell desktops/laptops with analog mics
#best#dell-m6-dmic  Dell desktops/laptops with digital mics
#x#dell-m6  Dell desktops/laptops with both type of mics
#x#dell-eq  Dell desktops/laptops
#alienware  Alienware M17x
#auto    BIOS setup (default)
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6-dmic
