Have you right clicked on the speaker icon on upper panel and adjusted the mic volume? There is also a way to set volume on all devices:
Right click on the icon and select preferences. Enable all devices and run the volumes up there then recheck. You may need to restart or login in again if that does not do the trick.

You might try, when in the mixer panel, to select preferences and enable several other settings. I have seen where some have had to enable the front speaker and adjust that volume up also. See how that works.

The strange thing is that when I record (by knocking and shouting directly on the mic) and play it, it only play in the left speaker..
