Default Microphone problems.

I'm having trouble with my microphone. I have to talk really loudly before anyone can hear me.

The Playback volume is on full. The Record volume is on full (with microphone selected). The drivers are fully updated. Even with my microphone on full volume it is still hard to hear me.

I also have microphone boost enabled. I've tried reinstalling sound drivers but no help. The microphone works perfectly on other computers.

Thanks for the help.

Ok Thank you. Do you know a REALLLLLY cheap sound card which will do the job? I don't care about listening quality as long as my voice is clear.
