Tried uninstalling the drivers for it, and running windows update?
All Brekat has to do is right click on the mic and set it to default communication device.

How is this so difficult to understand?

It is your mic.

The mic isnt even being recognized. The driver is for a microphone of some sort, but its not the one I'm used to. I have no idea what is wrong.

Can you just right click on what you put in the screenshot and choose "set as default communication device" by left clicking it?

No it is not as per your screenshot.

If you don't want to follow simple instructions, then you shouldn't have a working mic.

Notice the telephone icon in the picture.

If somehow it is working already, all you need to do is check the box for mic boost to make it louder in advanced or custom tab or similar.

We gonna make this work lol!

If I right click on it, it doesn't give me an option to do that unless I enable the Line-In, and right click on it, then it lets me select one or the other as the default communication device, but it won't let me go to that if it's already selected. It's not that simple when nothing everyone else has been doing is working.

OK. Refer to your image above. Double click the microphone. This should bring up the Microphone Properties dialogue. Note that this is from mine, and yours might well be slightly different. Select the Levels tab and make any necessary adjustments. You may also need to select one or more of the other tabs and make adjustments there as well.

I'm at 100 and +.40 db (they're both all the way and I can't change them.)

Find a different driver version which could help or you'll need a better (read: more compatible) mic.
