Have you tried aumix and alsamixer? I find amixer easier to use but
alsamixer lets you adjust the volume with the arrows. aumix is more
limited but I find it easier for quickly adjusting the master volume.
Try this for example:
Also, read the man page for amixer and aumix.

What does amixer by itself say? There should be a control for
microphone or line in. On my system, I do this to adjust my playback
volume, but adjust as necessary for your sound card. Watch the case.
amixer set Master playback 100,100
Try something like this and see if it helps:
amixer | grep -i record
amixer contents | grep -i record
If none of that helps, your sound card is probably not fully supported
in Linux, or at least not by ALSA. Try looking for different sound card
