Default Microphone Sound Low

I just bought a microphone, like an actual microphone not the headset ones, and the recording volume is extremely quiet, I've already boosted the recording volume in my computer, but its still quiet. Any tips?

See if you can boost the mic level in Windows. If you right click on the sound icon and select recording devices, double click on the microphone and you can adjust the microphone level there.
