In Vista, right click on the speaker icon next to the taskbar clock (lower right corner). Click on Recording Devices.
Double click your microphone in the list. Go to the Levels tab.
Here there is a slider. Set it to 100% (if it isn't already).
Under that is a boost slider, which will make the microphone record louder.

Hope this helps.

How are you recording? Is there a certain software you are using, or is it built into the game? The recording volume may be turned down from there.
