Exclamation Mic doesn't work

I'm running a Slack10.1 and the sound is really good, but I noticed the mic doesn't work when I tried to use Skype.

Then I tested the mic with a soundrecorder: nothing.
It's completely mute, even if I set all possible switches by mean of both kmix and alsamixer.

Can you help me out?
Thanks, buddies.

Your mic maybe set up for use as an extra speaker for dolby 5.1 or something...
