So, I thought it is broken (the microphone, the headphones work)... but when I like scream, they hear me, but low volume, like the microphone volume (on the pc, not on the headset) is turned down, they can hear me, but when I shout...On the laptop it works perfectly, like before

Windows 7 32bit
How can I check the volume, or turn it up?
thanks

Type in sndvol32.exe and press Enter
If Microphone is not in the list then click on Options and then on Properties
Scroll down in the Show the following volume controls: area and make sure to put a check in the box next to Microphone and then click OK
Check and make sure the Volume is turned up and that the Mute box is not checked[/b]
Now click on the Advanced Button and in the new window click the Mic Boost box so it is checked.


Now go to:
Start and the Control Panel
Then go to Sounds And Audio Devices
Click On the Audio Tab and in the Sound Recording are make sure your Sound Card is the Default Device
If not please click on the Drop Down Menu and change it

Now click on the Voice Tab and in the Voice Recording are make sure your Sound Card is the Default Device
If it is not then then please click on the Drop Down Menu and change it.

Thanks for reply

1. "Windows cannot find sndvol32.exe, make sure you typed the name correctly and try again"

2. There are no Sounds and Audio Devices, there is only sound.
