I have a new Dell Dimension 3100 PC running windows XP Home. I'm having difficulty with the microphone recording level in that it is so quiet you can hardly hear it. The sound drivers are from SigmaTel and are the latest version.
I've checked all the sound levels through control panel and they are all set to maximum. Hardware acceleration is also set to maximum. I tried the hardware test and the level indicator was very low and I cant increase it as it's at maximum.
The volume control panel that you can start from the status bar doesn't have a slider control for the microphone level!
Any suggestions on how to resolve this will be welcomed.
