I have a dell xps 400 with front and rear

\015 I have a dell xps 400 (XP Service pack 3 with latest updates) with front and rear microphone jacks. I'm plugging into the front (rear didn't work at all), and the input level is very low, even when I max out the volume in the setup dialog and turn on the boost (Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Voice tab > Voice recording Volume... button > Recording Control (Select microphone and set volume to max) > Options menu, check on Advanced Controls > Advanced button > Other Controls, check on Microphone Boost). This is a Sigma Tel Audio driver (I've checked for updates and MS tells me they are the most recent - 6/14/2005, version 5.10.0.4568). Is there any way I can get this input cranked up? It's usable now, but just barely.\015

I have a Foxconn LS-36 Revision A01 Motherboard. The Model number is: CN-OGC375-13740-5AG-00CU. (The first O might be a 0). At any rate this MB is on a Dell XPS 600 unit, which has died and I have a Raid 0 Array in there as my Data Drive. My question is, what chipset does this unit use, so I can find a compatible MB to replace it with. I'd like to keep my RAID 0 Array and I'm fairly sure if I go with a different chipset, the RAID 0 Array won't get reconstructed
