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.

I would first finish updating your laptop with all of the Windows XP Service pack updates. Here is also a link to all the drivers for your laptop. It looks like there is 3 possible sound card drivers.

Having compaq presario c700 facing cound problem......


we have to face it, the microphone feature is not working on XP. i've tried to install it a millionth times, no go. it's working very well on vista. if you want, you can just try to do dual boot. both XP and Vista in one system. just a suggestion though...

Hope this helps!
