Can the microphone jack input be configured for a stereo signal from a tape deck without overloading

Can the Microphone jack input on the HP Pavilion dv6  be configured to take in a stereo signal from a tape deck without overloading the microphone jack, i.e., so it acts as a Line In jack?.  The jack is too sensitive to accept the typical signal from a tape deck or stereo tape out jack from an audio receiver, and the incoming sound is overloaded and distorted.  Also, connecting from a stereo receiver headphone jack so the level can be controlled to the laptop microphone jack lowers the signal strength but contains a lot of background hum.  Any way to configure the microphone jack to have it work as a line in jack?
