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.

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

Hi Shree.
I will provide you a driver which has worked for lots of people. Try this driver and let me know.
This model of Presario has an audio controller that supports the high definition audio. You need to have Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio installed on the computer before installing the audio driver.    Here is the link for the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture driver that need to be installed before installing the audio driver:    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp33501-34000/sp33867.exe  
  After installing the UAA driver reboot the notebook and install the audio driver from the following link:

Conexant CX20549-12 High Definition Audio driver:    ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp35501-36000/sp35940.exe


Installing this driver may result in an error. But continue with the following steps to get the audio driver installed correctly.    1. Click on Start and select Run. Now type devmgmt.msc and press enter.  2. Right click on "AUDIO DEVICE ON HIGH DEFINATION BUS" or Conexant High defination audio entry and click Update driver.  3. Select "Not at this time", click on next and Select "Install from a list or specific location"  4. Click Next. Then select "Don't search, I will choose the driver to install"  5. Click Next and then select "Sound, video and game controller" from the list.  6. Click Next and then click Have Disk.  7. Click Browse C:\swsetup\sp35940 folder and the double click the (WinxP -> Thrifty10 -> CPL30A5a.inf file for Audio) Select the .inf file, click open and Continue with the onscreen instructions.
