I tried all settings in the control panel and high definition sound manager that comes with realtek driver.

Can you see your green bar levels moving for your Mic input? Also provide a snipit of your record properties/mic properties.

I had the same problem, I've managed to fix it by removing the sound device from device manager, the machine then rebooted. Once restarted Windows automatically installed it's own sound drivers. After that it worked fine.
