mic recording volume very low

hi all,
im having trouble with my headphones mic which from some reason recording volume is very low .
so low that in game (by using TS [teamspeak]) when other people have the game sound , they can bearly hear me.
i set my mic to 100 volume and the boost to +30db but thing stay the same.

when i test the mic with recorder the bar even dont rised a little bit .

ohh , and by the way , in case anyone thought the problem isnt in the mic which is new due to the fact that after this problem happend at the last microsoft headphones i had, i bought new one (forgot the model).
any help here ?

im using windows 7
64bit premium

Hello fibola & Welcome to 7Forums!

What headphones to you have?
If it's Logitech etc. there might be some type of driver or an utility. Look for their website, or either way, you might have a DVD with driver.
See if Windows have been putting up the right input for your microphone. Maybe the default input is broken, who knows!
Also make sure the software you're communicating with is functional.

Good luck
Best Regards,
