Microphone not working with my Compaq Presario C797VU

Hi All,
I just purchase a new laptop Compaq Presario C797VU, The problem is the inbuilt microphone is not working. I am using the Windows Xp right now.
Some experts says that it will work only if I install Vista on it. Is there any solution as I don't want to Install Vista? Please Help ..

    Hi ,
    Even i'm using the same laptop.. same problem for me to with windows xp..

  • pradeepsol Dec 08, 2008

    yes vishal, even i have purchased exactly the same model.
    this problem is for lack of proper drivers. drivers for windows xp1 or xp2 are not available for this model. HP hasn't released any windows xp drivers for this model.
    I contacted the HP support team and they say that this model is specifically designed for windows vista therefore the drivers for windows xp are not available.

    Now just imagine... what are we suppose to do?!

    if anyone has a solution for this problem please mail me at

    Waiting for help
    Thank you

How to turn off my inbuilt mic ...i'm using compaq armada e500 Laptop .it maakes a beep sound if i keep my hand near the key board pls help

In WIN XP there's a Sound icon in the System Tray for Volume (double-click), or you might find it in Control Panel - Sounds and Audio Devices - Volume Tab - Advance - click the Mute box for Microphone.

Or something similar on whatever platform/OS you're using.

Microphone for a compaq computer

Any consumer grade pc mic will be fine, as long as the mic has a mini plug so it can plug into the pc's jack, don't get a mic with an xlr plug.

Cant turn off my mic in my laptop

Double click on the little speaker icon on the Desktop toolbar at the bottom right of your screen. The volume control window will open. Click on options then properties. Next check the small round recording button. Now make sure he microphone box is checked then click ok. Now a window will open that will show your microphone recording level. Move the slider up about half way and make sure to check the small "Select" box near the bottom of the slider. Open up sound recorder or whatever application you are using and try to record. I hope this has been helpful.
