A friend borrow me his microphone couple of days ago, and it's working normally but it's too damn silent! :thumbsup:
I have to shout if I wanna hear something! I have turned the microphone volume to maximum in my sound cards drivers but it's still too silent! Does anyone know a way how to make it louder, maybe with some software or something?

That is usually caused by an impedence mismatch. If you can, check out what your motherboard requires for a microphone input. If you can't, you might just want to try a different Mic.

I hope this helps.

Thank's guys. I plan to get my own mic anyway and I'll see if it will work normally then.
It probably will beacuse my friend said it's same problem on his computer.
Cheers.

I had the same exact problem when I first built my computer. Try turning up the recording master volume. That fixed it for me.

To get there in windows XP, go to control panel, sound and audio devices, click the voice tab, and under voice recording click volume. Turn up the master volume, and this should fix your problem.

Problem solved! My sound card driver has suddenly changed itself, so I found option 'Advance', I clicked on it and there I clicked on 'Options'. There I put a checkmark on 'Enable Microphone Booster' and that was it!
