    yes I did plugged in with the correct jack and I checked my audio setting the unmuted is on and volume is max! The notebook is crazy that when I plugged in the headphone set, the sound should not come out from its speaker but it synchronized with the headphone sound. I tried to mute it, it didn't work.

    Have you installed it using a driver from the mic manufacturer? I know it sounds stupid, but you're sure it's plugged in to the correct jack? You've checked your audio settings and it's not on mute?

Ok have to enable it in the volume manager ...double clic on the volume icon tray ( lower right ) and will appear a window with a few volume controls ...In the left upper there is a option choice and choose properties... in there you have to select the mic from a list ...its volume will be displayed on the initial window after that ...check not to be muted...and give it volume has to work now ....
by the way I assumed that ya have an xp on it ...but its about the same for vista have to go on volume controls from sounds...and see the playback properties...and volume and see not to be muted...
I also noticed that dowgrading from vista to xp ...for some HD laptops the mic problems are present ...It something with the driver ....if that what i said not working ... look for a more compatible sound driver ..or ...choose a usb mic ...maybe will do the trick

    no is not the jack ...however it is a posibility regards with your comment that it muting the speakers,,when you plug into the headphones..this is normal cause the muting device for the headphones is a mecanical one in the outlet ...and no matter what 3,2 jack you plug it will mute the regards with the problem ..I suspect that the driver is just a compatible one ...and not the right one ...let me know the exact model of your laptop ..and the operation system you use...and I will look for some forums to see solutions others done ...cause as I said before I did had the same problems with a similar Hp ....not sure about the series...but it behaved the same came with vista on ...and when dowwngraded to xp never worked the mic built in ...or jacked...until I found a driver that fixed it ...even if will take me a while to locate ..I promise to link it ...
    Have a nice day !

    this location will provide the best drivers for Vista ..
    the other 2 ones are for xp forgot to tell me what is you operating system ...anyway it's good to have them both ...ones never know ...when it will be needed..
    so ...uninstall your driver ...and install again ...after that look where I told you before to initiate the mic..from the options on the volume manager ( double click on the genera volume icon in the tray system )

    did I mention that it might need a UAA fix..I believe it sa driver for some models in xp make it have to install it along with the sound driver ...
    I have read about somewhere and I thought it is worth to gave it a try I mentioned I did have some problems before with mic in downgrade from vista to xp ...and I let it be .....another try might be a usb mic to get along with ...if you have a camera that have a mic ..but its not a jack plug ...gave it a try ..

My compaq presario c700 xp microphon are to unmuted microphone.

Select the volume icon in the lower tool tray (looks a small speaker) then right click it - select "audio Properties" then "voice" - make sure the correct microphone is selected under "Voice Recording". This will also let you see the volume setting etc and is very easy to work out what is going on - there is even a hardware check option that will let you try the microphone after changing any settings.

Laptop compaq presario c700 model no 791tu camera and speaker working but mic not working(mic meter doesn't move) operating XP sp2.trouble shooting in setting chat says :working properly.early reply...

Dear sheetaldevbr,
Try to connect you video set (cam,speaker,Mic set) to another computer, to find out that probably the problem is in your Laptop PC. Or try to reconfigure your microphone by setting them up on Control panel.
Follow these steps:
Start>ControlPanel>Sound,Speech and Audio Device and rearrange your Mic Device driver. Or If you run the complete Office (at least 2003) try to run the speech recognition on office and run the training and you can also reconfigure your mic in Micrososft Office software.

Best regards,

Microphone not working for presario c700

If it has Realtek device drivers check through that not WDM. Also, make sure you set the record settings for the mic to select it, not the play settings.
