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?
