Microphone for Compaq lap-top CQ60

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?
If I have to download some drivers, where from?
The guy who instaled it for me, both times, went on HP website and he has downloaded some drivers from there but still doesn't work
Thank you for your time,
Tudor

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

Here's a link to the audio driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp39501-40000/sp39902.exe

Also check you sound mixer, the mic is often muted by default to avoid feedback when it's not in use.

I am not able to install Windows XP on Compaq Presario CQ60-104TU


Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".
