Having problems with your Compaq Presario Notebook ?

Compaq Presario CQ70-116ea XP microphone extremely quiet

\015 Hi,I recently "downgraded/upgraded/sidegraded" my CQ70 laptop from Vista to XP Pro (it is far faster and more stable now). After a day's work I have all the correct drivers installed and all devices working... except that the internal microphone on the Conexant HD Audio 221 chipset is so quiet that I have to shout for anything to register in either the default Sound Recorder or via Skype. I have also tested this with a Plantronics USB headset and get the same results - the microphone is turn so far down that any sounds picked up can hardly be heard.I believe this is somethign within the registry, at least I seem to recall reading that in a post over the past couple of days (with a soultion) but I now cannot locate that post and so cannot implement and test that solution.Can anyone help with this? I'd be loathed to have to revert to Vista because of one simgle issue as the laptop is far more useable with XP Pro than it was with Vista.Cheers,Gary Hicks\015

Answers :

Have you tried going into the sound management and volume controls?, there should be a slider control to turn up the mic. in there somewhere.
Or updating the sound driver, or rolling back the driver?
I know that you have updated the drivers but I did that and had to roll back as the "new" driver was less than useless.
I hope this helps
