Microphone very quiet/not working.

Does your laptop have something like Realtek audio manager installed? There's usually a "microphone level" slider somewhere in that application that can be dragged to 1% fairly easily by accident. Also check your windows sound devices input levels.

Actually my case had a faulty or cheap 3.5mm jack. Everything was fixed as soon as i got a usb soundcard.

Thanks for the help

I've played out with the settings a lot but still my microphone is very quiet that barely picks up me speaking into it right in front of my mouth. Is it a problem that is software and driver related or is my 3.5mm jack screwed? Tried different headsets that work on my phone and friends laptop but never seems to work properly on mine.
