Does it get better if you bring that up to 100? Also, you may want to mute mic, this only feeds the microphone input straight to the output. This could create a feedback loop which the sound card may try to suppress (although I doubt most soundcards would be that advanced). Also, cheap PC microphones are usually electret condenser mics that require power supply from the soundcard. Not all soundcards provide that. Sometimes only the microphone socket at the rear is powered but the front socket isn't (like on my PC). Since it works under Win, maybe the soundcard wants to be told by the driver to turn on microphone power? Just guessing here... Cheers Steffen.
