    I have an onboard soundcard... on a Soyo Kt333 Drag-on Lite
    The Mic level is all the way up... i have tried it at lower levels too...
    I believe i have the latest driver... its some 6in1 c-media thing...
    Can someone help me... I am using the mic from my webcam right now... records high, but I would rather use a mic ya know?

    Assuming you have tried all the sound properties , have a look in Control Panel/Sounds & Audio Devices/ Audio/ Sound Recording and make sure its not set to a device other than webcam.

    go into the windows volume control, make sure 'microphone' is one of the levels, and there should be an 'advanced' button for it. click on that and you'll be able to set "Microphone +20dB Boost".

    i made a pic so you can't get it wrong. :p
