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.

Inbuilt microphone of hp presario c700 not working


At first let me tell you should have Operating System Vista for the inbuilt mic to work to get the full performance as it has the drivers. Got to Start>All Programs>Accessories>Entertainmnet>Sound Recorder. You can check the mic is working or not.

Microphone


Inspect your computer to see if has a hole somewhere that might look like a microphone. If you want to find out for sure open up your windows sound recorder from Start - Program - Accesories - Entertainment. Hit the record button and talk or yell something if you would like. You should see recorded sound wave in the middle of your sound recorder. If you do not see the recorded waves this might mean that your microphone is turned off. To turn it on just Double click on the little speaker icon on your taskbar 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 the 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 and try to record again. If this does not work you probably do not have a built in microphone. There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.

Cannot get laptop microphone working


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. If this does not work I would get an external microphone plug it into your laptop and try recording again. If the external mic works then I would think that you internal microphone is not working. There are some very cheap external mics on the market that sound very good. If you are doing any serius recording you may want to invest in a USB microphone. The USB mic should come with it's own software and setup should be pretty simple. I hope I have been helpful.
