Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron B120. I tried to use a microphone on it. It
barely records. You have to shout. I used the same mic on a desktop and it
works fine. what's up? thanks, Frank

did you play with the audio settings in the control panel? some times it is off or set low by default.

My thought is when u plug it it you still use the Built in microphone go into your sound properties and switche the recording or micrphone settings to the new one :) :)

If that doesnt work mess around in the volume controls

In Control Panel, Sound and audio properties, Device Volume, Advanced. you'll see an Advanced button under the Mic control. Click it and you should see this screen, enable the boost and see if that helps.
