HP notebook voice recorder problem

I have been using my HP pavilion dv6000 since a long time and i cannot record any voice with it.

I tried to install the software and drivers but nothing worked for me, i tried to mess with sound and audio devices in the control panel but nothing worked, any suggestion

  • i am using XP professional SP2, i believe i had this problem the moment i used Tuneup 2008 to optimize my PC.

Anyone can help please?
