Go to start/control panel/sound.
Click the recording tab.
Click on the microphone then click the configure button.
Click the custom tab and select microphone +20db boost.
Click apply/ok.

Is the microphone actually set as default recording device in the recording tab?
You can right click it and click set as default or communication default.
Whichever you need .

Go back to the recording tab in control panel/sound.
Click the mic and click properties.
Click the levels tab and make sure it is turned up and not muted.
That's about all I can think of besides a possibly bad mic.
Oh,if it is a stereo mic,you may need to click the advanced tab
and select the proper configuration and bit rate.

Yeah,it's ok to bump the post every once in a while.
I can't think of anything else right now.
Maybe someone else can.

double click the speaker icon in your task bar and be sure all the volumes are all the way up and/or not muted

Recently, I hooked up all 4 of my old mikes just to test them on XP, and 3 of them I had to hold against my mouth to get anything resembling audio out of my speakers, the 4th was decent, not great, but I could be 4 inches from the mike and could hear what I was speaking OK. These were old, stick type mikes from 8 or more years ago....I think there must be a large difference in mikes and performance, at least with the cheap stick types.

I do not have a new headphone set to test with, but I have used them and they are much better.

The best way to test the equipment is to use them over Yahoo Messenger or any other audio/visual application.....you need to find out what the testing software included with for example, Yahoo Messenger, tells you and the input from the other end of the chat can guide you, too.

See if you can install Skype and test the mic using it. Skype has a really good UI and can easily help you get your mic up and running. :)
