There is not a restore defaults button, this is usually done from the soundcard, however, the volume slider for line in / mic should be there, just move it to increase volume. If you cannot see line in / mic then press options top left then properties and put a tick in its box

The only othert things are click start then control panel then sounds, audio speech then sounds, audio then click voice to see if the headset is set as default then click volume and adjust you can also click audio and see if the headset is the default recording and then press volume to see what it has there

If you have Office with speech recognition, open the language bar then press tools then options then advanced speech then audio input and make sure this is set to the soundcard and the dot is in use this input device then click OK and apply
