I am trying to do audio recording. The recording level is extremely low. The only time I can hear anything in playback is when I bang the mic on the desk. It happens the same way on the front panel connector or the rear panel connector. I can't find any way to adjust the recording level.
You may need to increase all the levels on the audio properties along with the microphone boost option on the operating system's control panel on sound settings (sounds icon), check for the default playback device and check the options for microphone boost. other than that try another microphone and using the system without the audio front panel connected to the motherboard testing and using only the jack on the motherboard.
