Microphone doesn't work well

I am using dual boot (Win xp and Win 7), on XP my microphone works good, but on Win 7 no one can hear me. I didn't look for drivers because when I installed Win 7 i have all needed drivers. May drivers be a problem, or there is something else?
I am using microphone only for Skype.

hi dxcatic, and welcome to sevenforums,

maybe you mike is too quiet?

try control panel >> hardware and sound >> sound >> recording >> properties >> custom >> tick box for +20dB boost

this will make you louder.
