Are you using the microphone connection on the sound card or the one on the motherboard?
You should disable onboard sound in the Bios and connect the microphone to the sound card, if you have not already done so.

I had the same problem and contacted the manufactuer (mine was sony)...

Using the same on board audio -- Windows (xp) just wouldn't boost the mic enough --- Fortunately, Sony had preinstalled Sonic Studio and it would boost the levels just fine.

Check your PC for recording software. If you don't have it--- check the web for free versions of recording software. I know Sonic Stage Mastering Studio worked for me (i'm not sure what it costs). As a last resort, by a sound card.

Hope this helps some.
