Hi:

 

Here is the user guide for your notebook>

 

See chapter 3 for how to check for sound recording (microphone).

 

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02178460.pdf

 

Your maintenance and service guide will show you where the components are located such as a microphone. See Chapter 2, page 11 for where a built in mike would be located.

Hi,

 

I'm afraid I don't know, since I don't have a PC with a webcam.

 

Hopefully someone else will be able to help.

 

There should be software installed in your programs menu to operate the camera though, according to your user manual on page 16.

 

Check your all progams menu for such software.

Hi Daniel,

Many thanks for your kind response.

Have used your link for SmartMedia but unfortunately it is not listed among the available Software or Drivers and I do not know where else it may downloaded from

Re: Does Presario CQ56 have a built in Mic

Hi Daniel,

Many thanks found it at last, my only problem is that it is a very large file and my computer and broadband link can only download it  at 17KBs.

Do you know if this is available as a CD/DVD

Thanks
