I was inquiring for the codec of the chip as alsa has many options that can be passed depending on the codec. Please also post the results of the following:

Code:
cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
Good luck. ;-)

I'll post the config file as soon as I'm back home.
The very strange thing is that, apparently, everything came out of blue sky after it worked like a charm for more than 6 months. The only things I could blame are either Skype (I had removed the "adjust automatically the volumes" option, but it automagically came back on) or an update (but, as far as I remember, I did no kernel updates in the past week and everything worked until my last skype call 10 days ago...).

Fixed!!
I've started the notebook with a USB key and replicated the alsamixer settings, which were working for the live version. The mic has to be muted, while the digital one un-muted... It's crazy, I have changed them multiple times and this never worked...
Also, it seems like the volumes change as they wish, without any control.... But that's a minor problem, now I can finally make the phone calls!
Thanks to everyone who helped me!
Have a nice week-end!
