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.

Unfortunately there is no support for free dos drivers. If you go to their site, you'll notice that the supported operating systems are all windows.

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.

Where is the microphone on a dell dimension 5150?


You have to buy an external mic and put it in the sound card - the machine doesn't come with a mic installed on the unit. Some lap tops do but desk tops do not.

Does it come with a built in microphone?


If you run a program that uses one and it does not recognize a microphone, then it does not. Also if you have the box, most companies will brag about a built in mic if it has one.

My microphone jack is jammed because one of my microphones broke off. I bought a new mic and now it will not fit in. Is it possible to use my blue "Line-in" jack as a mic jack?


You can try it but I don't think it will work.
I think the power levels are different.

Are you sure you can't get the broken stub of the old connector out with a small pair of pliers or something?

I suppose the sound card is built onto your motherboard.
You could disable it on the bios and get sound card to go into one of your interface slots. They are not very expensive. Just make sure you get one that matches one of your free slots.

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

The mic may be muted on the computer. In XP, double click the volume control icon in the bottom right of the screen to get the mixer. If you don't see the microphone input, go to 'options' then 'properties' and place a check in the box to show it. Then make sure it is unmuted and the volume is up.
In Vista, right-click the volume icon and choose recording devices and make sure it is on and volume up.
