You don't say which HP Pavilion and they're all slightly different. If
you have an Intel sound chipet (e.g. snd-hda-intel ICH9), then you may
try changing the last line in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf (the one
that starts with "options snd-hda-intel"). At least try commenting it
out or try replacing the power stuff ("power_save=10
power_save_controller=N") with something similar to "model=hp-dv6".

If the other person can't hear you when to talk to the webcam, then it's
also possible that the sound volume for your mic may be too low.
