For audio, I'd guess it could be one of the mixer settings.
I'd try starting 'alsamixer'. Unmute everything you
can, and use the spacebar to set the Mic (and possibly
other channels) to CAPTURE. 

When you have found okay settings, you can save them
(as root) with

     alsactl store

I'll punt on video, I bought two webcams, neither of
which is recognized.
