I have the same notebook under FC9. Have you found a solution?
With Skype I have problems as well - the microphone is not workin and the sound works only when I open options and choose sound devices - there I set for Sound In HDA Intel (hw:intel,0), and for the other two HDA Intel (plughw:intel,0) like this I can hear the test call but when I have to record a msg, it doesn't record anything.
The gnome--sound-recorder doesn't reproduce the record. I have to save it and then use aplay record.mp3 . It playes but even if there is a record, it is below the noise level.
Wonder how can we fix it..seems we got to wait for the next release?
