Default Recording analogue to digital

I have been recording to my computer from some old vinyl (which is not available on CD), using Cool Edit 2000. I have encountered a problem with some records where, even though I have the line in set to the lowest possible volume, it is still overloading in Cool Edit and distorting. Is there any way I can reduce the strength of the signal going from my amplifier to my computer?

Please put any answers in simple language - I am a technological illiterate!

MoJ,
Lower the input fader in windows recording control. In my case it's the Line in.
Edit: I see you set it to lowest.
Are you sure you didn't use the Mic in?
