If your using a mic then you will need a pre amp, if your plugging straight in with a guitar amp then just check all your volume levels on your guitar, amp, computer line in and audacity input, and if none of those, just turn up the tracks on audacity using the amplify effect

^^Well check to make sure all your levels are up probably your "line in" for sure, also make sure nothin is mutted although there shouldn't be anything muted cause you are getting sound. (If you double click on that speaker in the bottom right it should give you advanced options

In Audacity under those giant ass play/stop/record buttons there are 2 variable bars, one has a speaker icon and the other has a mic icon, make sure the bar with the mic icon is up all the way and make sure you have line in selected

I don't know what you are plugging in to the line input (a PC mic, a guitar, a studio mic?). None of these will work well direct. The PC line input is a stereo input and you need to use a stereo source that has a output at line levels. That means you need a pre-amp or switch to a USB based pre-amp for your mic or instrument. A PC crappo mic will only work on the crappo PC mic input. I would not recommend even messing with that kind of setup.

If you have it setup right you will have tons of volume with little noise. Otherwise you will have a bunch of mushy crap.
