Question about Compaq Presario S6300NX PC Desktop
Where do I plug the cable into the computer
You are talking about the little 3.5mm jack on the end of the microphone? That plugs into the back of your computer and it should be the pink ring on your sound card.
If that is not what you meant. Please describe further and I will be happy to assist you.

Look for the sound card on the back of the computer. This will have a 15-pin connector and several colored jacks.
Locate the microphone jack. Although some manufacturers will stray from the norm, the microphone jack is typically colored red or pink and/or will probably have a picture of a microphone.
Connect the microphone into the jack.
Click "Start," then click "Control Panel," then click "Hardware and Sound," then click "Manage Audio Devices" under the "Sound" category. This opens the "Sound" window.
Click the "Recording" tab. Here you will see a picture of a microphone. To the right of the picture should be a sound bar.
Test the microphone by speaking into it. If the sound bar lights up, then the microphone is plugged in correctly and ready to use. If the sound bar remains gray, then there is no signal. Try another jack on your sound card and repeat the steps to test your microphone. If you still can't get the microphone to work review your computer documentation or contact the manufacturer's technical support.

So it is strongly recommended to download the latest audio driver from the internet for your sound-card or on board audio chipset. Install the vista compatible audio driver (sound driver) for your sound-card or motherboard audio. After this re-start your computer. Half of the work is done.
Now plug in the microphone in your sound-card / motherboard audio pin (generally pink in color for microphone).
After this go to control panel > sound and audio device settings. Check whether the microphone is detected by Vista or not. If not, check whether you have selected the frontal microphone or rear, as vista recognizes them separately unlike windows Xp. Correct the configuration of front/rear mic if needed.
