Thanks in advance .
I guess I was kinda tired when I wrote that: if I understand your original message correctly, you can play sound but not record it, right?
If THAT's the case, that's definitely a tough problem. I'm assuming it was working under windows.
Assuming you're not afraid to do it, compiling a new kernel from recent sources may be your best idea as there may have been a bug in the Intel HD driver when your current kernel was released.
Also proving how tired I was: the correct command I should have given you is "lsmod | grep 'snd'" --that is, list modules not list PCI bus. My bad.
If THAT doesn't work, and just entering "lsmod" shows nothing that looks like sound stuff, then your drivers aren't loaded. There's a chance your sound drivers are compiled into the kernel, but I don't think there are any distributions left that do that--having nothing at all appear when you run "lsmod" by itself, however, would make that highly suspect. You should only ever see that on old distro versions or non-stock kernels.
