Question about Compaq PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just bought a Compaq Presario CQ60 with free DOS. I instaled WIN Vista but I couldn't use the mic. Also I connected external mic and headphones but they, both, didn't worked. I instaled WIN Vista black edition 2009, it works good as the normal Win Vista but the same problem: mic doesn't work and also if I plug headphones and mic they both don't work. Is there some setting I didn't do or I have to download these settings or some software? Thank you for your time, Tudor

No sound on New computer Packard


Where are you expecting sound to come from? Do you have external speakers? Are they plugged into the right jack on the back? Do they also plug into the wall with a a/c adaptor? Are they part of your display? HP and Compaq Desktop PCs Connecting Speakers or Headphones Windows Vista

Hp compaq dc7600 front panel 3.5 mm jacks not working so no mic and headset and my os in win 7 x32


That can either be a software or hardware problem. Please check BIOS and Sound card drivers to see if the front Headphone and mic jack are enabled. (right click computer ->properties-> device manager) or start programs -> realtek (depending on sound card)

Was it ever working before and do the plug in the back work for your computer?

1. First of all check in the device manager for the devices with missing drivers.
2. Re-install the sound card driver and missing drivers if any from compaq support site.
3. Check the settings in the software you are using to use the mic.
4. If nothing works, try to re-install the whole OS.
5. If that also not work take it to computer repair shop to get it checked for hardware error.

Do you have two mics or not,well if you have one you may have to delete one of them or both.Reboot the computer windows will install the drivers and this should fix this If not un-install the sound card drivers.Windows should reinstall once you reboot.However before you do make sure you have a copy of the sound drivers to reinstall.
Good luck

XP Drivers for compaq cq60


I have a Compaq Presario CQ60 211DX Here is the list of drivers i found. I hope it works on your CQ60 model
Audio driver: Download file: sp39540 from HP's website
Audio driver # 2: google this file: cx20561_hd_smart_audio221xp\XP32 or click here
For wireless card download : http://www.mediafire.com/?cfdzj3eaizt or search for AR5007_XP file
You may have to hold the wireless switch for a while before you can connect to the internet.
Installing the wifi card and utility and having it work is hard,but is possible: so don't give up.
Ethernet drivers: google: PCIE_Install_5702_0828

You may need to update XP , install dot.net framework 3.1 or higher, windows installer before trying t
he drivers. I had so much trouble finding the right drivers and if I am able to slipstream XP MCE i will post it on www.isohunt.com as a torrent for download to make it easy for those who need the drivers.

==========
I hope this helps

Microphone for Compaq lap-top CQ60


I had the same problem before but I'm so glad to share it with you people how I fixed it. I chatted with several people in hp but they adviced me to redo the installation of black vista which I disagreed. So I tried to find a solution for it and I fixed the problem by doing the following.

1. Control Panel
2. System and maintenance
3. Device Manager. On that you will be able to see 2 different audio device. First is generic sound driver (Hi-definition Multimedia Interface) which is integrated to black vista and the other one is nvdia HDMI(if you already installed it).
4. Disable the generic one (Hi-definition Multimedia Interface) NOT NVDIA.
5. After doing it go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-63166-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3804174&os=2093&lang=en click on install. It's should be
Conexant High-Definition SmartAudio 221 Driver 6. Click on install and allow it to finish the installation.

If you still encounter a problem you can post here so I can try to find a solution.\

Thanks,
Ome
