Are your channels displayed correctly in KMix? Are the appropriate channels 
selected for recording (red light lit on the Input tab)? Play around with the 
volume sliders too. If it is affecting only one user, it is clearly a 
configuration problem. You can try resetting your KMix settings if the other 
steps don't show anything... just delete (or move to a backup location) KMix 
configuration files in ~/.kde/share/config.

Blade hails you...
