I have connected 3 different head sets (that function properly in other PC's) to my desktop and if I scream into the mic it will record a whisper. Mic is not muted, volumes are up (via contol panel and realtek HD audio manager) and mic boost is up 30 DB (via control panel and realtek hd audio manager). I have tried both the front and rear jacks as well as one in my keyboard with no change. I updated the sound drivers through device manager (clicked update driver) and ran live update 5 (mobo software that scans and looks for updates for multiple drivers). 

 

Now im stuck

Try the latest Realtek HD onboard audio drivers here. Do you use the Windows 7 sound recording feature? Do you have a dedicated port for Mic only?

that driver update seemed to do the trick. It's a little on the low side using +20 db boost but definitely manageable. thanks for your help jhayz.

 

 

I don't use windows sound recording and I was using the soundcard off the MOBO. I thought the pink jack was dedicated to mic in.
