Sounds like you have turned down your recording input (like a trim pot). Have you tried double clicking on the speaker icon in your in tray and then looking at the "recording" view as opposed to the "playback" view. You can select either form the pull down menu. It sounds like you need to increase your input signal from your sound card.

Let us know if this helps and if not we will try something else.
