What kind of mike do you have? Electret? Condensor? Dynamic? Piezo? 
How many contacts does its connector have?

There is a kind of microphone that has a very small output signal 
which requires great amplification. There is also often an option 
to increase the input amplification by some amount, like by +20dB. 
Grope around and look for some kind of on/off option for increasing 
the input amplification by something like +20dB. The option might 
be in a mixer program, or in Audacity, or both, or could even be 
in some other program. 

Gain is how much amplification one has.
