Do you expect input from the laptop's internal mic or from an external
mic? In the non-working case alsa seems to be reporting that an
external mic is plugged in and in the working case alsa is reporting
that the external mic is not plugged in.

If you're trying to use the internal mic, then it seems that after boot
the kernel incorrectly thinks that an external mic is connected, and
therefore mutes the internal mic. The alsa mixer doesn't provide any
way to choose between the two inputs, so I don't think there's anything
you can do except get the kernel driver fixed.
