Well, the subject line pretty much says it all; I plug a microphone in
the mic jack of the on-board sound chip and, when recording, the level
is very low. Turning on "MIC Boost" does help a very little, but that's
about it; raising "Capture" over 85% yields a sound not unlike an idling
car. Looking around on the internet, I could find information about low
playback level problems with this card, but nothing regarding recording
levels. Anyone has any idea on what the matter might be? See full
information below.
