Line in via microphone jack on HP6715b??

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit)

I would like to record my keyboard synth from its line out stereo jacks into my HP6715b (using a cable with 2 x 6.3mm mono jacks into a 3.5mm stereo jack which I already have) using DAW software.


The only possible jack socket is on the left side of the laptop, but this is marked microphone.


But confusingly, my audio driver (SoundMAX Digital Digital Integrated HD Audio from Analog Devices v6.10.1.5240, dated 24/4/2008) - when I open the recording devices tab - gives me the option of choosing either Microhpone or Line In. However, playing a signal into the laptop only feeds the Microphone level meter, and even if I set Line In to be default, it does not receive a signal.


Therefore, becasue the gain level of the microphone signal chain is higher, the sound is very distorted. Sure, I can throttle back in Properties>>>Levels, and also turn my synth volume control way down to get an almost acceptable recording.


But how can I switch the microphone jack to become a Line In jack? Am I missing something very obvious here??


Is the aforementioned driver the most up to date and best option for the audio card on this laptop?


Thx for any advice you can give me.

There must be someone out there who is using their 67xx series laptop with a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) such as Nuendo for producing music??


How do you record Line In signals? (I guess the short answer is with a USB or Firewire audio interface, but there's no money in my bank account to finance that.)
