Docking Station Audio-In Not Working

I cannot get the HP Docking Station Audio-in to work with my Compaq 6510b notebook (WinXP Pro) using a current SoundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio driver. I have connected a number of headsets to the HP Docking Station's audio in/out. I can hear sound fine. However, the 6510b's built-in mic captures sound - the better quality headset microphone will not work unless I plug directly into the notebook. I have tried changing the "Sound and Audio Devices Properties" with no luck. Is this a known issue? Is their a solution?

Re: Docking Station Audio-In Not Working

Hi,

I don't have a docking station with me, my question: is it a LINE-IN or AUDIO-IN ?

The Manual describes the jack as
Audio-in (microphone) jack - Connects home audio equipment such as CD and MP3 players.

Re: Docking Station Audio-In Not Working

Hi,

1. Have you tried it with a cable from other device such as a MP3 player, and what is the result ?

2. If 1 was ok then what is your microphone, is it a stereo one? If NOT stereo microphone I think could be the jack and wiring inside the docking station. Please check more from this:

You may need an adapter for this.
