A couple of things come to mind: you do have sound on the system?[1] and 
you do have the appropriate codecs installed?

[1] on command line do: gnome-volume-control which will bring up the 
sound menu- see if the slider for Input is correctly set.

One other thing, you do have the proper channels opened (alsamixergui 
and see if the one you would use to record are active).
