    I have a problem with my volume on my microphone, it's very low. I can only hear anything if I blow directly into the mic, or shout very loud. No matter what settings I change the volume does not get any louder. Altered all the settings including mic boost but still it doesn't work properly. Any ideas?

    Could just be a lousy microphone.
    Have you tried the microphone on a different computer or tried a different microphone?
    Would try this first since it would at least give you an idea if the problem is the microphone or a computer sound issue.

    Would also check to see if there are updated drivers for the Realtek AC97 at your computer manufacturer's site.
